The Secret Tiki Temple

Visit: Unknown

This is a fantastic little gem of a bar. First off, they are very small so reservations are required for any visit. The staff is incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable. The drinks were phenomenal! They have their recipes down pat and there wasn't a cocktail we didn't enjoy. They do have a secret menu with a few beverages that aren't on the regular menu, so be sure to ask. The high end Mai Tai served in a Spam can is one of them and it was one of my favorites. The atmosphere is perfect classic Tiki and you can tell they have been collecting for a long time. Without a doubt a must if you are in or near Jacksonville.

The Secret Tiki Temple Speakeasy Tiki Bar/Chinese Restaurant – Jacksonville, Florida, United States

This thinly veiled speakeasy tiki bar is located within the Pagoda Chinese Restaurant in Jacksonville, Florida.

The restaurant has been open since 1975, but the newer edition of the Secret Tiki Temple came about in 2017 or so.

The exterior sign highlights that there is a tiki lounge and the murals on the exterior show frolicking pandas as well as tikis.

Inside, the space is exclusively a Chinese style restaurant until you reach the hidden lounge of the Secret Tiki Temple.

Once inside the temple, the interior is richly layered and has tikis, Elvis paintings, fish floats, fish traps, colored mood lighting and basically everything you would expect from a vintage style tiki bar.
