Mai Tiki opens in Ferndale

Hometown Restaurant Group, owner of Tigerlily and others, has officially opened Mai Tiki bar in Ferndale. The island getaway themed establishment is nestled behind a semi-concealed door on the side of the Tigerlily dining room. Part speakeasy and full-on tiki themed, all who pass through the entrance are carried away by the scent of tropical fruits and rum-based cocktails to a seaside paradise adorned with island relics and coastal views in every direction. Focusing on craft quality, the tiki team has resurrected historic island cocktails of the 20th century and updated them with modern, high-quality ingredients for refreshing iterations of the drinks of old. Classics like the Run Rummer, the Zombie, Painkiller and Mai Tai are heavily garnished with fresh fruits and served in decorative tiki vessels, which also are available for purchase. Small plates, such as crab rangoon, robata-grilled pineapple, pork belly bao and fish tacos were created by Tigerlily Chef Chris Vasquez, who designed the menu to offer guests fine dining flavors at affordable appetizer prices. Outside of food and drink, Mai Tiki maintains its breezy atmosphere with a handcrafted beach mural wrapping around narrow room, giving the 900-square-foot space a more expansive feel. Mai Tiki is open from 4-midnight Sunday to Thursday and 4 p.m.1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. 231 W. Nine Mile Road, Ferndale tigerlilyferndale.com
