Tiki-Style Bar In the Works for Mirage

Guests of Mirage recently received an intriguing survey from the Strip resort.

Casino surveys often telegraph plans already in motion, and this one’s juicy because it asked guests to provide feedback about a new tiki-style bar “situated on the waters overlooking the iconic Mirage volcano.”

A new tiki bar overlooking the Mirage volcano would be fire. Also, possibly lit.

Here’s a look at the concept, although this isn’t a rendering of the actual venue, “but rather to give a general sense of what it might look like.”

This is one of the best ideas we’ve seen floated in awhile.

Please make it look like that, Mirage!

The survey also said, “this tiki-style bar features table and bartop seating, a range of beer and cocktails, as well as a grab-and-go daiquri bar.”

If you grabbed a daiquiri at this bar, why would you want to go anywhere?

While we weren’t one of the customers asked, we love this idea, and it’s a great fit for the Mirage.

Here’s another image to give a sense of the space.

In Vegas, we’re spoiled rattan. It was either that or a “frond or foe” joke, sorry.

One can never have too much tiki.

Vegas has some great tiki bars off-Strip, including Frankie’s Tiki Room (try the Fink Bomb) and Golden Tiki (check out the shrunken heads).

Ellis Island had a fun pop-up tiki experience on the second floor of its Front Yard. It ended Aug. 1, unfortunately. They’re doing more pop-ups in the future, possibly for Halloween and definitely for Christmas.

Tikiwise, Mirage doesn’t need surveys, they just need us!

Love the concept, it’s a great new addition to augment the volcano eruption experience and they’ll be printing money, so let’s make this new tiki bar a reality at Mirage.

    I’m surprised we haven’t seen the tiki theme exploited more often. Honestly, it’s overrated. It’s a look, it’s distinct, you put more fruit in your tropical cocktails, serve fewer whiskey-sours. With the longtime love of Frank and Goldon, I’m surprised the strip hasn’t exploited the idea long ago. I am also surprised Ellis Isle didn’t keep their tiki motif, but I like the idea of changing of the look throughout the year.

    I don’t walk the strip or go to Mirage, ever, so this does nothing for me. I’m sure we’ll see somebody slap together a tiki bar downtown in the near future, if there’s not one already. You’d think the California would have one.

    That does not look like a Tiki Bar (it looks like a rush job, “quick we need some place to f’n schill drinks and make money outside, because Vegas attracts visitors who only want to walk outside our f’n Resort!” shit that used to be at the Tropicana many years ago before their fugly South Beach makeover!)

    Tiki Bars NEVER last on the Strip! Remember Taboo Cove at the Venetian circa 2001? (remember that it didn’t last an f’n year before being shuttered? remember it’s bad location? I remember the cool Statue out front + Shag art + Bosko Decor!)

    Back to Frankie’s Tiki Room I go!
