The Midwest’s Most Authentic retro TROPICAL DRINK LOUNGE

Our origins trace back to Wicker Park, Chicago. We have been at our current location in River Grove, IL since 1964. This has given us more than half a century to perfect our craft cocktail recipes, and the service that makes us special. This long history has given us the time to perfect our space – the chairs, lights, tropical decorations, glassware, paintings, and original WITCO artworks – everything about us is pure escapism. Since “escapism” is a state of mind come on in and let us take your mind to your very own tropical oasis, or somewhere far, far away!

HISTORIC Authenticity


Hala Kahiki is more than a Craft Cocktail or a Tropical Drink (what ever you may feel that is). Everything about us – from our Tropical patio garden, to our retro wall decorations, our authentic mid-century modern WITCO art collection, our nautical light fixtures, and even our staff – is a true Experience. We have been inspiring imaginations since 1964, and we’ve have had many decades to master our craft. Come check us out for yourself in all of our mid-century modern awesomeness.
