With Trader Vic's shutting down, you might be looking for more Tiki fun. The Tiki Terrace in Prospect Heights is excellent. Despite the very odd strip mall location, they have fantastic decorations and truly delicious cocktails (much better than Hala Kahiki, I have to say). With Tiki Blues shows and hula girls dancing on Saturdays, this place puts Prospect Heights on the map.
