5 Best Tiki & Themed Bars in Phoenix: Tiki, Irish, & More

Halloween goes on for the whole month, and no, you can’t change our mind on this. But you are more than welcome to join our celebration as we navigate through the top five Tiki and Irish bars in Phoenix.


3620 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85018

UnderTow is undoubtedly the best-themed bar in Phoenix. This unique Tiki bar creates an immersive rain forest experience by featuring the entire bar as a giant ship. Right now, they are fully decorated for Halloween adventures!

Be advised that due to the pandemic, UnderTow is by-reservation only right now at a decreased capacity. So make sure you give them a call and secure your spot on the ship ahead of time!


The Duce

525 S Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004 

There are reasons why The Duce was the party central among Phoenix residents. The theme at this bar in Phoenix rotates seasonally and their full staff dedicates themselves to entertainment at the highest quality. Their central themes were old-schooled fitness and retro recreation. If you are down for some old-schooled sports such as table tennis, The Duce will be your heaven.

Stay tuned to their social media updates as they gradually reopen. They are also running a fun event called Food Fight to raise funds to solve hunger problems in the community.

HULA’S Modern Tiki Uptown

5114 N 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85014

Not as eccentric and hardcore as UnderTow, but still a unique Tiki experience. HULA’S is one of Phoenix’s best modern Tiki bars with craft cocktails and a unique vibe that combines modern aesthetics with the Tiki theme.

They are running all-night happy hours every Wednesday, which is just another reason why you need to add HULA’S to your Halloween bar-crawl list.


Spoke & Wheel

8525 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85020

Craft beer and burgers… True. But did you know Spoke & Wheel is also the best bike-themed bar in Phoenix? Bikes are everywhere in this bar, from windows to wall decors. Their creative application of bikes and bike parts will open your eyes to a brand new style.

If you are a cyclist, you can enjoy exclusive specials all day as long as you ride in. So get that mountain bike out of the garage and ride on the last bit of summer before the temperature drops!

The Irish Hare Pub

4747 E Elliot Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85044

Is it even possible to not include an Irish pub when talking about themed bars? We don’t think so. Irish Hare is precisely what you’d imagine a homey little bar would be: wooden interiors, low seats, extensive beer list on tap, plus a selection of iconic Irish dishes.

The bar is currently open for dine-in and take-out. They have also resumed their usual programming of trivia nights, football nights, and live music performances.
