Ten Best Tiki Bars in South Florida

Page 3 of 5

8. The Backyard

If Jimmy Buffet were to pop up in Boynton Beach, he would hang out at the Backyard. The large outdoor bar and restaurant is filled with tropical and mid-century accents: huge tiki bar, palm trees, and wood tables complete with airstream trailer kitchen. With live music six days a week and a long list of tropical drinks, it's like being in the islands--but really on the side of the road.

7. Lava Tiki Bar & Grill

Tropical drinks are best enjoyed by the water, in the sun. Lava Tiki Bar in Hollywood has those components covered. Right on the intracoastal, the poolside bar offers guests the opportunity to watch boats pass by while throwing back potent rum drink. If you're looking to bust out the Hawaiian shirt and work on that awesome farmer's tan, this place is here to serve.
