Florida's Oldest Tiki Bar

The Bahi Hut is Florida's oldest tiki bar (and third oldest in the country). Since 1954 they've been serving up cocktails and island vibes, with the specialty being their famous Mai Tai. Be warned: there's a limit of two per person. The place is a retro trip in the Wayback Machine, chock full of mid-century modern tiki tropical decor. On weekends they host live entertainment and Drag Queen Bingo. Highly worth it if you're in Sarasota.
