Best Tiki Bars in Jacksonville


Moving to Jacksonville, Florida? Or just taking a few week’s vacay? Whatever your reason may be, Jacksonville sounds just about great for a destination! 🙂

JAX is known as the largest city in the continental U.S, and the home to stunning beaches, thrilling activities, and just overall natural beauty.

Nightlife you ask? But of course, JAX has got some for ya– both the nightlife & FUN.

To start off, here are a few of the fun a.k.a bars & pubs. 😉

1. Secret Tiki Timple

Tropical cocktails, beer, wine, and so much more in an exotic atmosphere!

A fantastic ambiance to have a drink or two… oohh, and some bites, too!

Secret Tiki Temple is a not-so-secret hidden oasis located in Northeast Florida. The place and everything else will make you not want to leave even after you grabbed a bite or something. 

The decor gives out an earthily feels which is also one of the factors that make the place one of the most amazing bars you could ever be at in JAX.

I honestly couldn’t say more, but to see is believing, so hit it up with the details below for the complete list of menu + operating hours!! 🙂

2. Island Girl Cigar Bar

A spectacular place to succumb to the smell of cigars!

This is by far one the most unique places I have written about. Cigars? I’m not one to say, but I sure as hell the smell of cigar & wine combined is an aphrodisiac!

Island Girl Cigar offers that relaxed atmosphere you can never turn your back on. The interior of the place looks sultry enough to have your booze and cigs spent with your boo or friends or whatever.

The place gives the island feel to it while sipping on your favorite wine or puffing on that expensive-looking cigar. I suggest you go book yourself and see if it’s worth your while… but I can now assure you it will be. 😉

3. The Sunset Tiki Bar

Kid-friendly bar & grill with a swimming hole giving out summery drinks & beach menu plus live music all with gorgeous sunsets viewing!

Now, how about some perfectly-crafted bar overlooking a God-crafted scenery? A bar with a view of sunsets? I couldn’t be happier just thinking about it!

The place had added two more paved patios, both with gas firepits giving three times the spaces they originally had. They also have live music and food trucks on the weekends along with drink specials such as “Sunset Special” which you can savor while watching an actual sunset every day. 

Stop searching for the perfect place, now is your chance to go to the best one! 🙂

4. Mavi Waterfront Bar & Grill

Offers bar bites, sandwiches, salads, wings, fresh fish, seafood, and a full bar with indoor & outdoor waterfront dining!

A legitimate waterfront dining experience! You will be given an option to have your drinks & food indoor or have them while facing a wondrous amount of yacht admiring and drooling over them while savoring your meal there.

The menu offers a variety of choices you would have a really trying time choosing from.

Need I say more? Yelp reviews are overflowing with positive feedback for both the place & the service they offer! Check Mavi out if you’re just around the area! 🙂

5. Pagoda Restaurant

For some authentic Chinese cuisines & bites in a Pagoda-style resto!

I don’t know about you, but I personally believe that you can never go wrong with Asian cookeries.

Pagoda Restaurant here offers a wide variety of menu for just dim sum’s alone. This could be considered “heaven” for dim sum lovers out there!

The place is complete with a Buddha statue, stuffed pandas, and a dim red light that compliments the room perfectly.  They have been operating since the ‘70s and the hype just couldn’t die down! Feel free to come through! 🙂

6. Milano’s Italian Restaurant Pizza & Bar

A comfy Italian place with a full bar that serves both thin-crust & Sicilian pies, plus subs & other staples!

Pizza, anyone? 

I am a pizza-devotee myself, so a tavern similar to this haven right here is my safe place. NO CAP.

What’s perfect with Milano’s is the venture of devouring pizza alongside some beer or wine. I’m feeling a little giddy and oh, yes, I’m literally drooling!

You can start destroying pizzas at Milano’s as early as 11 AM! Check them out and let us know how it goes! 😉

7. Sandollar Restaurant & Marina

Veteran riverfront destination for locally caught seafood & steaks, with a patio hosting live music!

What did I tell you about JAX being the home to beautiful beaches and whatnot?

Well, this place has proven why exactly.

Sandollar is yet another pub with a view of the waterfront– St. John’s River to be precise.

They serve fresh food (seafood & local cuisines) and live music to hype up the place. Moreso, despite it being one of the most sought-after & oldest restaurants in town, Sandollar managed to keep the prices budget-friendly.

They open at 11 AM every day of the week!

8. American Legion Post 137

How about some charitable organization?!?

Yup, you’ve read that right. 😉

This post is dedicated to serving & providing professional development & employment services to military forces!

This place has got to be THE MOST special place among all the places we’ve ever written on the list thus far.

They provide civilian, safe & normal lives to our retired militaries, support them, and make sure they have everything they need. GIVING BACK IS THE PURPOSE, and it is powerful, indeed.

Come check out the place! 🙂 They have a nice tiki bar and a boat ramp that I’m pretty sure you will fancy. Grab something to drink or eat! Come! 🙂

Wow, that was something else. I didn’t know finding someplace for you guys to stay in and have some great nights would be a tear-jerker… weird. LOL. But who am I kidding here, I have shallow tears. LMAO. Well, have fun & be safe out there, ya dorks! 🙂

Meg

Well, hey there! It’s Meg! I love writing for BarPx, because who doesn’t like the task of hunting for different booze cubby holes, am I right? I loooove my job! My favourite liquid refreshment besides water & coconut water (hehe) is probably some light vodka drinks, and maybe a little bit of beer. I have low alcohol tolerance, no shit, but here I am. Cheers!
