Century Club - Visited 100 or more tiki bars - Check in!

Pages: 1 23 replies

I'm at 104. Anyone else 100+?

I stopped counting at 100, but I'm guessing close to 115 now.

I have about 100 in the old repertoire. So many of them are long gone or many of them changed names over the decades.

It's interesting. Once you get to a certain number, you realize that no one cares how many tiki bars you visited.

Except perhaps, those who have visited just as many.

Far and few between.

Almost there, I think I'm up to 8! LOL

Does the count include home tiki bars as well?

I think that would get me to 11 if I count my own :D


Damn wow! 100 not even close.

BUT we have been to many of the best tiki bars still here and some dead ones.

Mai Kai, Kahiki, Tiki Ti, Chicago Trader vic's, Swanky's, Kirby's, Amys tree house,Three Dots,Frankies.

I know I missed a few, been to more but that's the top ones.


I've been to 53 locations listed on Critiki (not all of them are bars) but i think that's pretty good considering that i live in Australia.

An excellent list! Congrats

Unlucky timing to post a link to Critiki

It wasn't five days ago when i made that post. If i knew what was coming i would have taken some screen shots of the link so i had the information for my own personal records.

Using the Wayback Machine I was able to collect my total off Critiki (well, where my total sat for quite a while until last May): 50 + 5

I'm just over halfway to 100 (although not all of these can be called tiki bars)

I obviously need to up my game. I feel like I've been to a whole lot of tiki bars, but when I add them up I can only come up with 36.

I've just added "Tiki Bar Visits" to https://mytiki.life which replicates some of the lost Critiki functionality.

If anyone needs help finding their critiki list shoot me a message.


Fabulous! Could you add a pin map to this? That's what I used to love about Critiki. I'd just look up where I was going and see if there were any tiki bars nearby.

There's a map here: https://mytiki.life/tiki-bars/map

Thanks for this! There were a number of places I'd forgotten about.

Where you on Critiki? I can help get a list of your previous check-ins.

Yeah, I was. I went through My Tiki Life and added all the places I've been to. I also added a few old local places now gone.

Unfortunately we didn't record all the user checkins, only the location information.

However I have been able to help people find a cached version online. Message me your critiki username and I'll see what I can find.


Damn the important question is what do you do to rack up the kind of cash it would take to go to over 100 tiki bars! Let alone the time needed to take off for all these trips.

I can tell ya not one who did this owned a restaurant, we were lucky to get one week off a year it would take 100 years for us to do this. And many times I would spend that week cleaning / fixing / waxing floors of that damn restaurant.

Wait don't tell me you are in health care, ever notice that the BIG eBayers are in health care.

Now you know why heath care is so costly.

If you are on this list, you are very fortunate people.

Good work! You should try to visit the Foundation Bar in Milwaukee, WI. You won't be disappointed. Strange name for an authentic tiki bar.
