Norrmalm, Stockholm, Sweden
Stefan Kéry opened Tiki Room in Stockholm on January 23, 2002, becoming the first tiki bar in Sweden, at a time when tiki bars didn't tend to open anywhere, much less in the far-flung corners of the globe. The walls are lined with tapa cloth, bamboo, and lauhala mats, and a warm glow is provided by an array of pufferfish lamps and Orchids of Hawaii lights. There are tikis aplenty, including a tiki post standing guard at every booth. The menu has a mix of classic and modern tiki favorites, including bowl drinks served in tiki-flanked volcano bowls.
