This Authentic 1960s Tiki Bar Is Hiding In One Of Hawaii’s Smallest Towns

Everything about the Hawaiian Islands screams tropical paradise, including many of our remarkable restaurants. While tiki bars can easily be considered a dime a dozen here in the Aloha State, there are few options that cater perfectly to locals and tourists alike. There’s one tiki bar, in particular, that we can’t seem to get enough of. Nestled near the north shore of Kauai in Hanalei (population: 450), this local gem absolutely must be added to your Hawaii dining bucket list.
