Fort Lauderdale Hidden Gem Makes List of "Best Tiki Bars in U.S."
While most South Floridians recognize Mai-Kai as Broward County’s premier tiki bar destination, Fort Lauderdale is also home to Kreepy Tiki Tattoos and Boutique, a tattoo shop and music venue that also houses a tiki lounge.
Located in a black cinderblock building at 2608 S. Federal Highway, the Kreepy Tiki lounge has recently been named one of three Florida bars listed among the 22 Best Tiki Bars in the United States, according to Condé Nast Traveler.
Kreepy Tiki is featured alongside Fort Lauderdale’s Mai-Kai and Cocoa Beach's Mai Tiki Bar.
"We're just a little hidden gem,” co-owner Ayme Harrison told browardpalmbeach.com. "We're like family here. Kreepy is a small crew, and we try to make everyone who comes here feel like they're a part of it."
While it may lack in terms of having a beachside location, Kreepy Tiki makes up for it with plenty of Polynesian nostalgia, authentic ceramic tiki mugs and hand-maid cocktails based upon original tiki drinks.
