Restaurateur Robert Guarino (Marseille, Nizza, Five Napkin Burger), designer Eamon Roche (The Kiosk, E&O) and Broadway producer Greg Nobile (Parade, Slave Play) have opened a new tropical-inspired speakeasy in Hell’s Kitchen, called The Friki Tiki, located  in the former home to Réunion Surf Bar (357 West 44th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue).

Awaiting those who find the intimate and discrete watering hole are a range of expertly crafted, tropical-inspired cocktails, such as Rummy In MY Tummy, and a signature frozen painkiller, as well as exotic bites including Hawaiian Sweet Bun Cubans. The Friki Tiki is also home to Hell's Kitchen best Happy Hour every day from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Committed to offering live music nightly, The Friki Tiki’s rotating line-up will include resident pianists performing an all request piano show, Showtune Singalongs every Wednesday, and Broadway stars popping in to perform from past, current, and upcoming productions.
