If you like your tiki cocktails on the beach, look no further than the beach pier in Lake Worth where a new pop-up tiki bar dubbed Tiki ‘Ono has set up shop several days a week at the entrance to Benny’s on the Beach (10 South Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth).
Here you can order up a number of potent, tiki-style libations, mixed drinks, and rum flights — some served from fresh, shaved coconuts — several days a week.
The men behind Tiki 'Ono are local bartenders Rob Husted and Josh Gates, who developed the tiki concept which operates out of a pop-up tent open Friday through Tuesday. Here, beach-goers can order from a chalkboard menu that offers a short list of rotating and signature tiki-style drinks like Tiki 'Ono Lota Colada (a basil-infused pina colada that uses real cream of coconut) or the Virgin Sacrifice (vodka mixed with strawberries, blood orange juice, and ginger beer and topped off with Bols Blue Foam).
Tiki Ono is located at 10 S. Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth and operates five days a week, Friday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday from noon to 5:30 p.m. Call 561-315-7963, or visit tiki-ono.com.
