The Tiki Revolution Has Come to the Most Unexpected Places
If you’ve sipped cocktails at all over the past couple of years then you’re well aware that tiki culture is on fire. Born as a kitschy fad in post World War II California, tiki faded into the realm of outdated cheesiness sometime during the Carter administration. Its 21st-century reincarnation is more than just a revival, though. It’s become a diaspora. Whereas they were once the provenance of coastal, beach settings and warm-weather climes, tiki bars are now sprouting up everywhere. Truly a global phenomenon, the following far-flung lounges prove that you don’t need sand between your toes to enjoy a Mai Tai between your lips.
