Mixing a tropical cocktail requires much specialized knowledge, from how to crack open a coconut to what ratio of lime to rum you use to water bonsai umbrella seeds. Leave it to the pros with this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Tropical Drinks

More than 100 tropical drinks, such as Mai Tais, Zombies with traditional and 151 rum, and ice-cream drinks such as the Lava Flo, are poured in the Polynesian-themed bar or on its outside garden patio. Drink prices are subject to change, but generally cost between $6.50 and $14.50. See the full menu here.

Hala Kahiki

Rose and Stanley Sacharski never meant to open a tiki bar. Their first watering hole, The Lucky Start on Fullerton and Lockwood, was a simple neighborhood tavern until some bamboo wall coverings inspired endless questions from customers: were they a tiki bar? By 1963, the Sacharskis decided their answer was yes, and let their young son pick a new name—Hala Kahiki—from a copy of Dennis the Menace Goes to Hawaii.

Now located inside a former greenhouse in River Grove, Hala Kahiki pours more than 100 tropical-themed cocktails, mingling rum with daiquiris and gin with tropical fruits. Hanging shells sway above the bamboo-lined bar, and rattan lampshades and cane chairs evoke the pleasures of an endless Hawaiian summer. Tables and chairs dot a spacious outdoor garden, and an on-site gift shop stocks Hawaiian shirts, leis, wood-hewn lamps, and several former cast members of Gilligan's Island.

Customer Reviews

Unique and fun place. Nice atmosphere that is not too noisy or "over the top".

I always enjoy my visits to Hala Kahiki. The atmosphere is very nice - warm lighting and great music at the right volume. They also have an awesome beer garden for the warmer months. It's the right place for a fun night out with friends or a date. The drinks are amazing and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and down to earth.
