Mai-Kai Restaurant Named Best Tiki Bar Of The Summer By Coastal Living
Fort Lauderdale’s Mai-Kai was named the best tiki bar of the summer by Coastal Living readers, and we’re sure our readers agree. After all, Mai-Kai has been the city’s go-to Polynesian restaurant since 1956.
Coastal Living is running weekly polls between Memorial Day and Labor Day to discover its readers' favorite summer spots.
Here's what the publication had to say about our local staple:
Mai-Kai boasts a delightfully retro ’50s vibe—and a classic menu that hasn’t changed since the restaurant opened. The sarong-clad waitresses and bar offerings of more than 51 tropical drinks pay playful tribute to the tiki bar tradition, and each of the many rooms of this sprawling restaurant reflects a different region of Polynesia, with waterfalls and lagoons scattered throughout. Stop by any night except Monday for a captivating dance performance by the Polynesian Islander Revue, complete with hand-sewn costumes—just make a reservation first.
