You want Polynesian tiki-bar culture, Vegas-style? You want grass huts, carved wooden furniture, and cocktails such as the Green Gasser, the Thurston Howl, the Lava Letch, and the Bearded Clam? You'll get it all here, and more. On Fridays, if you wear a Hawaiian shirt, your first drink is half-price from 4 to 8 p.m. Better still: If you love your mug (and trust us, you will), there's a gift shop where you can buy one to bring the spirit of aloha home with you.

On a recent visit to Las Vegas we went to Frankie's because it was mentioned in Fodor's. We were not disappointed. It was a nice respite from the big hotels. We chatted with the owner/bartender, tried the grip meter, and enjoyed a yummy Polynesian concoction. Give it a try.
