My husband and I came here for the big opening event on April 2013. Our daughter goes to college in Maryland and they wanted us to come. They told us that is a big thing for locals and people come from all over the US to party. We got a great hotel close enough to walk to the Tiki Bar, but it was still freezing cold there in April. They had shuttle services, but it cost $10 dollars round trip. For me, there's really nothing special about it. It's just people drinking from morning till bar closes. It's a hangout for mostly local people and tourist who wants to try new things. They have Reggae music all the way in the back, and if you are in the front of the bar you can't hear it at all. It was crazy of all the amount of people that came to party. It took 15 minutes or more just to order a drink at the bar. Some people ordered 2-3 drink each just because of the craziness, but by the time you get to your 2nd or 3rd drink, it'll be watered down, unless you you're an alcoholic and you can chug all drink in less than 30 minutes. They were some clubs and restaurant near by if you are tired of just drinking and chatting. They have dancing floor, but the club plays hard core rock music that was hard to dance to. After awhile my husband and I were over it. It was kind a boring for us, but we were happy to see our daughters. They wanted us to stay a little longer, but they were mostly hanging out with friends, it was just my husband and I most of the time. So, we decided to leave before 8pm because it started to get really cold. On our way to our hotel, it started to rain hard. It was crazy! We got soak, and freezing at the same time...just not a good experienced. I'm from California, bars and clubs are always have better party than the opening of Tiki Bar. The only good thing about our trip was we got to see and hangout with our daughters. Will I do it again? Probably not! I'll just have my daughters come to us, and I'll show them what a real party is like.
