Built my own 2 years ago, seats up to 8 people around outside. Tv, refrige, grill and kegerator on inside. My wife and I spend every evening out there. Surrounded by Koi ponds, and a fire pit its a great way to wind down a day of work, or entertain friends.

BackYard Tiki Bars are a great thing to have if you are into entertaining.  I put one up next to my pool and it cost less than $2000 when it was all said and done.  I ordered plans online and had it up within a week.  Very simple, fun, unique thing for the backyard. 

People love the tikin bar more than the pool that cost more than 10 times as much...who woulda thought that.Smile

Love it!  We live in Florida and have started planning our own Tiki Bar for pool parties.  Great ideas, we'll use some of them!

I was just wondering, where in Disney did you get the inspiration for this great Tiki hut? We need to settle a difference in opinions. TY

Please allow this comment my intent is to help not bash the project.  This could be a fun DIY project and the aesthetics of the Tiki Bar is fine but the structural members supporting the roof is of concern.  The horizontal members in images 4-13 thru 6-13 should extend over the vertical support columns.  The steel L brackets are utilized in shear as load bearing components for which they are not designed.  This connection can fail and possibly cause personal injury.  If you don’t understand my concern please consult a structural engineer before constructing anything which could potentially cause injury particularly overhead loads.  Please bring this to the attention of the owner of the project in these images.

I call mine "The Sand_Bar" and collect sand from every place I've visited, placing them on display as the back walls of the bar.  Keeps me close to the beach in spirit.  Built it in 1989 and continually changed out signs and travel souvenirs to make it interesting.

Tikibars are cool. My ex-girlfriend's parents built one in their living room with some cool beach light effects and mural on the wall. My only concern with the one up there is that light. It will attract moths and bugs like a son of a gun.. I think I'd do the light some other way.

Anybody can stick a couple of tiki torches around the back deck to add a little island feel to the backyard and help keep away the bugs. Creating the look and feel of an actual tiki bar requires a little more effort and ingenuity--and it can be accomplished at a very reasonable cost. Create an attractive and functional outdoor haven for special occasions or just relaxing evenings with the family.

You can even customize your "build a tiki bar" search phrase to include specifics like the thatching for the roof, or where to find the best bamboo for your tiki bar. The most fun of all though, is decorating the tiki bar with the island swag that will give your backyard bar-b-ques that authentic luau feel and make your friends and family kick back, relax and have a great time.

How, you might ask, can this scene become your backyard oasis for the upcoming summer months? It's easy, just follow a few simple directions telling you how to build a tiki bar and the Saturday nights -- and Fridays, too, for that matter -- can belong to the good times and great memories created by hanging out with your friends and family.
