When Admiral Locnar's vessel crashed, he was stranded on a remote island. He made a life changing decision to climb the mountain rising above the beach. It didn’t take long for him to realize that he was surrounded by coconut and citrus trees – oranges, limes, lemons, pineapple – and a beautiful field of sugar cane.
In the years he was stranded alone, Admiral Locnar survived by living on what the island provided, squeezing the juices, harvesting the coconut, and distilling the sugar cane to fill the pineapples after he removed the sweet center. He meditated daily by the ocean, riding the waves in his mind to keep his focus.
He manifested these dreams by building a space to mix the juices, coconut, and distilled spirits. This became Tiki Underground, where he continues to create and imbibe, hoping someday he will be rescued.

We now take online reservations inside for parties of 3-6 people! The reservation is for 90 minutes. We ask for $10 per person deposit which will be refunded after your visit. We hold the table for 15 minutes after the reservation time, then will keep the deposit and release the table.
Our new location has limited space to accommodate groups of more than 6 people. You may reserve separate bookings and tell us the total size of your group under Special Requests, or click here if you’re interested in scheduling a private party for 7-15 people.
On Friday & Saturday 6-10PM we have a Waitlist for table seating with a 90-minute limit so the most people can enjoy the Tiki Underground experience when we're busy.
To join the Waitlist, when you arrive give your name and phone number to the host and we'll text you when the table is ready. We can only accept Waitlist requests in person, but you can make an online reservation in advance.
If you’re on the Waitlist and leave the premises, we will hold your table for 5 minutes after we text you that it's ready. If your plans change, please text us back so we can give the table to someone else.
Bar seating and standing room is open throughout the night, and you're welcome to enjoy a drink at the bar. There is a space in the middle where you can order.
Age 21 and over only!
We are now open in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio at 1832 Front Street!
