Shameful Tiki Bar

Popular Vancouver tiki bar opening location in Toronto

Now that Toronto's thoroughly entrenched in summer it's easy to forget winter's coming, and relatively soon. But don't panic just yet because a Vancouver-based tiki bar is set to migrate eastward just as the weather turns cold.

The Shameful Tiki Room opened up two years ago in Vancouver's Riley Park neighbourhood. Now, owner Rod Moore wants to bring it Toronto, reports Post City.

Moore already has an address for his new space. He's moving into Parkdale at 1378 Queen St. West - the cursed location that's been home to a rotating selection of bars and restaurants including Ravage and Rumble, Blondie's and Chino. It's also mere blocks away from Miss Thing's, another tropical-themed restaurant and bar.

According to Post City, Toronto's Shameful Tiki Room will have the same bar and food menus as the Vancouver location. You can expect lots of rum-based drinks and snacks as well as plenty of Polynesian decor and kitsch.
