Tiki Rock is an over-the-top tiki bar that, with flaming plates of sushi and colored lights splashed against exposed steel, might make you feel like you’re on the set of one of the Tim Burton Batman movies. It’s fun, though, and it’s always nice to have a bar downtown that doesn’t have the words “ye olde” on the sign. Bring a group of friends and have some drinks before a night out. Don’t expect mind-blowing food, but the sushi does the trick since you’re primarily here for a neon-colored cocktail, anyway.
