Unforgivingly smoky and dimly lit by blowfish taxidermy is Frankie’s Tiki Room, a little gem not far from the Strip. Frankie’s has been a bar since 1952, and P Moss’ loving care of the legendary space since the revamp a few years ago gives us Las Vegas’ only true tiki bar. Whether you’ve got a hankering for something tall, dark and stormy, or just a rum to sip neat (they have an impressively curated collection, you know), all are worthy of a toast. Just watch your head around the blowfish.
