The tiki vibes are strong at HULA’s Modern Tiki. This Old Town hideout is a throwback to the iconic tiki bars of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. The menu features a fusion of American and Polynesian flavors, and the cocktail list is just what you would expect – with classic rum-drenched Mai Tais, tropical libations decorated with edible flower garnishes and classic island-inspired drinks served up in tiki mugs. Each Wednesday, HULA’s offers all-night happy hour until 10 p.m., which means discounts on appetizers like the crispy coconut shrimp rolls, as well as classic cocktails including signature favorites like Dr. Funk and the HULA’s Hurricane.
