Before bars like Hidden Harbor made tiki its thing, Tiki Lounge in the South Side had a long history of slinging tropical drinks in a Polynesian-themed setting. The fun extends to the bar’s bathroom, which includes a waterfall, and requires descending a stairway accented with evocative red lighting and kitschy decor.
