"Best Tiki Bar" - you have to remember that this is a typical "Florida" Tiki bar. Basically a large thatch hut with a bar. I will give them props, because the place does have some character. It is an excellent "Beach" bar! Located right on the beach with a large pool and the drinks are not weak. Not TIKI!!!

Due to the holidays and other scheduling conflicts, we're taking the month of December off but hope to return in January with a special Mermaids & Mai-Kai event.

The Wreck Bar, feared to be facing the wrecking ball as part of an upcoming renovation of The Yankee Clipper, may be saved after all!

Check this thread for updates:

And join us Jan. 23 for the next Mermaids & Mai-Kai happy hour to toast this local landmark.

Attendance was a little slim at our first 2009 happy hour:







Actually, those are exclusive photos of the Mai-Kai's brand new chairs and bar stools, installed just before our Jan. 23 get-together. See more photos of the ongoing renovations here:

But we are a little disappointed at the turnout lately. So now that the Mai-Kai restoration is in full swing, you've got no excuse to miss our next gathering. Check back for details soon.

So is the Wreck Bar still open for business? I'll be in town Feb 8th and had hoped to check it out, but heard all the rumors of "renovations".

Tom, 3power said Wreck Bar, not Molokai bar. Different place. The Mai-Kai is open EVERY day, say amen.

Mai-Kai is open during renovations.

Wreck Bar is currently open, not sure if or when it will be closed as work on the hotel continues.

Port Corche is done and looks fabulous, has the canoe back in its proper place, most of the lamps hung, and of course the smiling faces of your valets.

The outside seating is being worked on currently, the wood flooring is being replaced and some of the bacbac and bamboo on the walls is also being fixed/repaired/replaced.

The Molokai is just about complete, the back dining rooms are just about complete and the new chairs look spectacular.

And, this is still just talk so nothing official yet, but the old chairs and barstools may be sold auction style..... still just talk so don't hold me to it or ask for dates and prices.

Re The Wreck Bar, which will be undergoing a completely different renovation (we fear) than the excellent restoration of The Mai-Kai and Molokai bar, it's indeed still open as the Yankee Clipper overhaul has not yet begun. So please show your support for Marina and the other mermaids while you still can.

Here's some news: This month we must unfortunately skip our usual Wreck Bar gathering but for a very good reason (drum roll please) ...

Those surf-rockin' simians from the Space Coast, The Disasternauts, will be making a rare appearance at The Molokai at The Mai-Kai on Friday, Feb. 27!

So we plan to make that evening a full-blown Mai-Kai party with perhaps a "Hukilau kickoff" theme. Come check out all the amazing renovations and get your monkey on.

More details to come.
