Hidden down an Orchid Avenue alley that’s filled with street art (look for the neon tiki head sign) is where you’ll find one of the coolest bars in Surfers Paradise, Taboo Tiki. Inside, there’s a huge rum bar slinging fabulous OTT tipples that come served in traditional ceramic tiki mugs. As well as ample tables and seating, there’s also uber-cute South Pacific-style huts you can book for special events. This joint oozes holiday vibes and there’s nary an exploited lingerie girl in sight.
