Having visited the Vancouver Shameful Tiki Room many times and having loved it, I had very high expectations of the Toronto location. It's very good, but it doesn't quite hit the mark that its Vancouver sister so beautifully nailed. It's a bigger, more open room. It's brighter and I don't feel as much like I am lost in a tropical jungle when I walk in. I feel like I walked into a city bar. However, even if it loses a few points in charm, the drinks are still spectacular, the music is good, the decor is classic tiki, and the food is tasty. I still recommend it, but given the choice... the Vancouver one is far better.

UPDATE! I first reviewed the Shameful Tiki Room Toronto back in 2016, but as the STR approaches their 4th Anniversary this November, it's fair to say this is my favourite bar in the GTA. Amazing staff, a wicked vibe, and consistently great cocktails. If they rented out rooms, I'd live here. The attention to detail and genuine love of Tiki is evident, right down to the groovy Exotica music. This place is the real deal. Aloha!

Finally got to visit the TO spot and really enjoyed it. Loved their takes on the classics, and tried one of their originals – the Blue Suede Booze – and dug it. I went solo while in town for work, but the bowls looked amazing and I wished I had someone to share one with. Excellent decor and a wonderful staff. Drinks were excellent and came out fast despite the bar being somewhat busy. I had the Tuna Poke and Fried Pickles. Both were great, but the chips weren't strong enough to scoop the poke-guac. My only true negative to share was that clientele didn't seem like a tiki crowd. I watched a guy next to me at the bar read the entire menu front to back and then order a Long Island Iced Tea... what a shame.
