hmmm MAN that would be cool if THIS was the weekend...kind of a minor point in the scheme of this trip but ANY tiki is good...we might make a FORAY into the HOITY TOITY with a early raid of the PLAYBOY CLUB but we are FAR from high rollers

well, tahiti joe's is very nice. the TiPSI factor is really high. i'm going tonight to talk with the manager and take some photos. the drinks were good and the bartenders are trying very hard. you have to ask for your mai tai made with the original recipe. i told the bartender the place needed tiki music and he put on reggae. oh, well, it's only the 3rd day open. the decor is top notch, though.

Tahiti Village is located directly on the far south end of The Strip at 7200 Las Vegas Blvd S. You can't miss it. A taxi ride from your hotel will take you there in minutes.

I went by this Tahiti Joe's and it was great. The food was unbelievable and its the closest to a real tiki bar I have ever seen. And I was shocked that the prices were not the typical "strip" prices.

Aloha

Awesome! I'll have to check it out next time I'm in Vegas. But I guess I'm like Haole'akamai in feeling compelled to note that their lovely sign features a glaring grammatical error:
"Hey! Looks like a classy join/
... oh, gosh ... 'pupu-apostrophe-s' -- they're on the dark side too..."

We will be in Las Vegas the 13th - 16th of May. Any one want to meet up at TJ's? Are the open for lunch or is it a bar. My favorite drink is diet Pepsi with lime. I only have it on vacations or the caffeine keeps me awake. Wendy

I went a few weeks ago, and its definitely got the most tiki decor in town. Tons of Oceanic Arts items on all the walls, they definitely bought-out the whole OA catalog. The vibe reminds me of the inside of The Tikis in Waikiki, but unfortunately without the ocean to go with it. The overall place was a little too well-lit for my tastes, feeling more Denny's than Trader Vic's. Food and drink were decent, but I wanted to launch my Mai Tai after listening to an hour of reggae and bad 90s pop music. My advice is to bring an IPod with some Martin Denny, because the soundtrack is insufferable... Overall I think they did a decent job with a joint thats obviously geared more towards average joe tourists craving a pina colada than the hardcore tiki freaks... And I guess it doesn't bode well that in this city barren of tiki, I feel little desire to make a return visit. But for out-of-towners, its worth a quick lunch on the way to the Strip...

The Tikis on Oahu has a lot of Gecko's original art work from small to very large carvings.

The Alibi up in Portland Oregon five years ago was so dark that we didn't see most of the art until we viewed our photos when we got home.

Too light isn't better either, we will check it out, Wendy
