LaniKai Lounge, a Tiki bar in downtown San Marcos, has permanently closed after almost two years in business. The bar served Tiki-inspired rum drinks, such as the mai tai, Cheeky Monkey and Pain Killer. The Tiki bar also had a small menu, including the LaniKai hot dog, sweet onion dip and black bean hummus.

“Lanikai Lounge brought Tiki to San Marcos almost two years ago,” owner Gabriel Sims said.” We had hopes of creating a place for an adult crowd to enjoy great cocktails and escape to a paradise setting. Unfortunately, we had to make the tough decision to close our doors.”
