  • Daily 10am-2am
Located just minutes from Triangle Square is the Tiki Bar, an aptly named joint that doubles as a music venue. The building is divided into three spacious sections which include a stage, bar area with two pool tables and a smoking patio. The performance room sees an eclectic mix of reggae, punk, country & western on any given night. The bar maids rock the fishnets and short skirts while the bar tenders look like your average beach bums. Drinks are reasonably priced, with domestic draft beers at $4 per pint and $5 mixed drinks. The spigots pour a respectable variety of beers including: Shock Top, Bud Light, Newcastle and Guiness. There's also a lobster tank with a robotic claw that allows you to try to catch your dinner in a way you've probably never imagined.
