Humuhumu’s description

The Golden Tiki opened in Las Vegas' Chinatown on July 24, 2015. The man behind The Golden Tiki, Branden Powers, has been part of the nightclub scene in Las Vegas for some time now (he was Creative Director at the Hard Rock Hotel), but is himself a longtime lover of Tiki, having spent some of his youth DJing Exotica tunes at the Islands Restaurant

The Golden Tiki is in a large space, 4,000 square feet, and split into four different zones. The interior design and build out were done by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo. The bar has a thatched roof, and is topped by an animatronic talking tiki head, named Goldy, created by Erik "Irk" Hedman. A loveseat-sized artificial giant clam is popular for photos.
A flaming pu-pu platter is available on Friday and Saturday nights.

I'd like to add that the team found out how bad of a time we had that night listed below and went out of their way to invite us back and see how much they take pride in their business. They made a customer for life out of me. The staff was crazy cool and took wonderful care of us, and made sure that we knew that we had dealt with the exception. Vegas was being Vegas, and I guess we ran into a heavy party night. It's a gamble you take. Don't sleep on this place, because it's incredible. I might suggest going earlier if you can, before people come out a ragin'.

We went in wanting to love it, but it drew the crowd you would expect from a Vegas strip mall, and people really killed the vibe for us. I tried to ask patrons that were not masked during the pandemic to not lean into our area to take a SECOND yelling group booty picture and got shamed for it. The staff let it happen until I got up and asked somebody to come cash us out because it was way too uncomfortable... but I still paid for everything and the 20% gratuity that got auto tacked on because I made a reservation to try to avoid exactly what happened. It was my one and only visit, which sucks, because the decor was nice and it looked like it could be fun to explore more. Not if you can’t protect your patrons, though. No thanks.
