Island tiki bar ideas

Whether a person is opening an actual island bar or renovating a backyard to resemble a tropical paradise, a tiki bar is typically a must-have feature. Tiki bars are believed to have originated in the South Pacific, and they typically feature rum-based cocktails. They are more than just bamboo-sided, palapa-covered bar huts; tiki bars have an atmosphere of fun and relaxation. Anyone can bring that feeling of the islands to his backyard by incorporating several different ideas and decorations.

Cocktails

Exotic and elaborate concoctions are the theme when it comes to tiki bars. It is widely believed a tiki bar served the first mai tai, and cocktails such as pina coladas, rum punch and margaritas are crowd favourites. If serving beer, think of lighter, blond beers popular in tropical destinations, such as Corona and Red Stripe.

Glasses and Cups

Many people with tiki bars go beyond the glass and use unconventional items to serve drinks in, such as coconut shells. Adding tropical flowers or drink umbrellas are also commonly used tiki bar cocktail decorations. If the bar is pirate-themed, "jeweled" goblets are a fun idea.

Seating

When designing a tiki bar, comfort and relaxation must be included in the seating plans. More than just bar stools, cushioned lawn chair and recliners can be used. Some island tiki bars have swings in place of bar stools, and have canopies surrounding the area. Sand on the ground is another touch to gain the authenticity of the tiki bar atmosphere.

Lighting

Some tiki bars forego electricity and use tiki torches instead. Many people place flower-shaped or small, coloured Christmas lights around the bar frame. Candles on the bar can be an added lighting touch as well.

Decorations

Tiki bars can be decorated in several different themes, such as hula or surfing. Some people used totem poles and Polynesian masks to bring in the South Pacific atmosphere, while others decorate with pirates and parrots. Any Caribbean theme may be used as well, such as with Mexican or Jamaican decorations.

Music

Music is an important aspect to creating the ideal tiki bar atmosphere. Steel drums, tribal drums and hula music are commonly used. Others play reggae, Jimmy Buffett, Latin jazz, or exotica music in the background.
