Gainesville, Florida, United States
Lo Cay Tiki Bar is the home tiki bar of Tim (ChromeTiki) and Danielle in Gainesville, Florida. They built the bar on their screened lanai in August 2012. The bar's name is pronounced the Caribbean way, "low key." The small bar seats up to five people, and overlooks their tropically landscaped backyard. The bar's design was inspired by well-known Polynesian-themed bars, but also by the couple's frequent travel to the Caribbean. The bar top is a ceramic mosaic of sea turtles. The couple have their collection of ephemera on display attached to the wooden surfaces of the bar, including postcards from tropical locales, labels from the liquor bottles consumed on the premises, and other items collected from their travels. Also on display is a rotating selection of paintings by ChromeTiki. The couple entertains in the bar, and also uses it as a place to hang out in the evening after the summer thunderstorms have cooled things off.
