Hawaii is only a short drive away when you visit Aku Aku Tiki Bar in Downtown Orlando. Based on the 1960’s Aku Aku restaurant housed in Las Vegas, this tiki bar delivers tropical drinks in the setting of a Hawaiian paradise.
Aku Aku is home to a variety of tropical drinks, including some that are served in giant bowls that you can share with multiple people. They also serve beer if you aren’t feeling like a cocktail, and seltzers are available as well. Each of the drinks is incredibly different, and even the presentation differs depending on your order. We tried the Aku Aku (dark rum, pineapple, mango and mint), as well as the Blue Wahine (rum, pineapple, lemon, lime, and agave).
The presentation truly sells the drink. There are many places in Downtown Orlando where you can get a mixed drink. However, not many will serve you drinks in tiki mugs and cups with surfers on them!
The theming in this bar was incredibly detailed, and actually made me feel transported to an island paradise.
Tiki Heads and Props
While you sip on your coastal cocktails, you’ll look around and notice incredibly beautiful paintings, props, and even huge sculptures like tiki heads. In addition to this, there is even a fish tank by the bar filled with brightly colored fish!
Behind one of the tables is a backdrop of a picturesque volcano. Along many of the walls as well are pictures from the 50’s and 60’s of celebrities and Hawaiian locals. Even the bar top itself is home to many Easter Eggs, housed among rows and rows of liquor bottles.
For a summer getaway in the heart of Central Florida, check out Aku Aku Tiki Bar located in Downtown Orlando. With beautifully themed island cocktails and atmosphere, you’ll truly be on island time without knowing you’re still in the city.
