The Waldorf houses several concepts under its multi-venue roof, but Tiki Bar – aka one of North America’s oldest Polynesian-inspired bars – has always been a favourite for thirsty Vancouverites looking to escape without hopping on a plane.

Now, 60 years after it was first opened by former owner and US Marine Bob Mills, the East Vancouver staple has received a revamp in the form of a new team, menu, and refreshed space.
