The Golden Tiki
The Golden Tiki might be the tiki bar to end all tiki bars. Beyond the expected fake fluorescent flowers and fruity cocktails set ablaze by bartenders, there are: not one, but two, mini waterfalls, shrunken heads of Las Vegas legends, a back room you enter through the mouth of a giant stone beast, and many more details that are all fighting for your attention. They never close, which means you can roll up during peak gremlin hours for crab rangoons and tots served with a french onion dipping sauce. If you want one of the tables or booths, you’ll have to reserve one in advance. That can be annoying for walk-ins, but great for when you need to plan out a 2am meal before going to the after-after party.
