The rooftop bar in Chicago’s Chinatown is the latest example of the trend in which bars and restaurants are turning to tiki for inspiration.
The name comes from the style of the bar, with the bars name, ‘roo’, emblazoned on a wooden deck.
The bar’s owners say it’s an homage to the way the area has been known to dance to music for centuries.
“We’re really excited about it,” said Mike McKeown, the owner of the taiko bar and bar in Chinatown.
“I’m actually from Chicago and I’ve been a taiko aficionado for about 20 years.”
While it might sound like a novelty, the taikai music is popular enough in Chicago that some have started referring to it as “tiki music”.
The name originated in Taiwan and is a trademark of the Taiwan-based taiko-music company, Pong Taipei.
It has become a trend among bars, restaurants and other venues in the US, Canada and Europe.

In the end, it’s about more than just dancing and a good time.
“It was really hard to come up with a theme that was actually in keeping with the theme of the restaurant,” he said.
McKeany said he thought it would be a good idea to give the restaurant’s menu a name that would match with the bar.
And to make it all work, he used a tikis own logo, as well as some tiki-themed tiles and other artwork.
Taiko-inspired artwork and tiki decor decor can be seen at the taiki bar in Chicagoland.

The bar has two taps that can only hold two beers, and can also be used for tiki cocktails and tikifarms.
“We thought it was a good way to introduce people to this unique area and the unique tiki style,” McKegan said.
But it’s not just for the tiki bars and bars like it that have been making waves in Chicago.
The tiki scene is also being seen in other parts of the US.
A few years ago, a bar in New York City opened called Taiko, and it also inspired a restaurant in Los Angeles called The Taiko Bar, which is also based in Taiwan.
Tiki bars have been popping up across the US and Canada, including in the heart of the city.
The Chicago taiko scene has also been taking off in other cities.
In Seattle, the Taiko Tiki Bar is currently open, with an emphasis on tiki culture and tai chi.
The bar opened in the city’s Pike Place Market in May, and has since been voted the “Best Taikai Bar” by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
“We’ve had more than 200 customers over the past week,” said Jason Pappas, co-owner of The Taikatiki Bar.
“It’s definitely one of our busiest nights of the year, so that’s a good sign.”
Pappas said the taika-themed beer tent is popular among local and national visitors.
“Our guests come from all over the country and we do all sorts of things for them,” he added.
There is a wait for the bar to open again for a Friday night party on the street, and the bar can only accommodate two people at a time.
For those that want to get a taste of the tikin’, the bar also offers tiki games and tuk-tuks, and even offers the opportunity to go to a live music show with a band.
