On the corner of a popular Philly section of town is Tiki Philly. This place has more of an island vibe than a place of Polynesian pop or retro tiki feel, but they have the decor.
Any attempt at re-creating a Polynesian Tiki bar is always appreciated. This place does not do such a bad job. It is a cross between your beach bar and a tiki place. Drinks are generous and the going rate but reasonable relatively speaking.
They got the drinks, they got the decor but the music playlist needs a lot of work. Yemmpa Aba by Ata Kak (Ghana); Lying Has Got To Stop by Soft Hair (New Zealand, getting closer); but White Frekles by Ariel Pink completely out of place. It is music you won’t likely hear any place else, and I give credit for that, but its a mash up of too many things playing played way to loud for a serene tropical setting, be it Tiki, island or anything else.
