4 Kahunas

4 Kahunas Tiki Lounge

Journey through over 40 cocktails ranging from boozy to sweet, plus classic rum sips and a few with their own tiki twists!. Get the luau started with Cannon Balls, aka Tiki Shooters, or a Search Party group cocktail. This spot is slightly hidden but definitely worth finding -- the bartenders have the huge menu memorized and are super helpful in helping you choose what to order. We tried the Sharknado, Painkiller (their bestseller!), and the Hali Ahi, a pineapple and passionfruit drink that comes on fire!
