Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
This tiki bar opened in 2002 after four years of effort by owners Scott Kramer and Steve Zumoff, who also owned a non-tiki bar in the same neighborhood called Lava Lounge (closed in 2016). Tiki Lounge features three waterfalls, thatch & bamboo hut booths, and a large tiki head entrance reminiscent of the large tiki fireplace at the now defunct Kahiki Supper Club. Tiki Lounge offers a variety of tropical cocktails in souvenir tiki mugs. The bar is full of regulars and probably has more appeal to tikiphiles on weeknights, as on the weekend it becomes a packed hip-hop dance club.
