Chicago's Only Polynesian Dinner & Show

The Tiki Terrace Dinner & Show, Every Fri & Sat Night:
Book your mini vacation today at Chicago's intimate Hawaiian hide-away and experience the sights, sounds, tastes, and entertainment of the South Pacific, without having to book a flight.  It is truly a full experience perfect for those seeking a unique night out.  Like the luaus in Hawaii, our guests enjoy a variety of unique Island dishes including the popular Kalua pig and Mahi Mahi, sip on cool Mai Tais from the tiki bar, and relax in tropical atmosphere reminiscent of beautiful Hawaii.  And the grand finale of your mini vacation is the action packed Echoes of Polynesia revue show.  

Show Times, Reservations, & Prices:
Show times are 8:30 on Friday and Saturday nights.  And we now have an early Saturday show with show time 5:15.  Seating takes place between 6:00 and 8:30.  For the early Saturday show, seating takes place between 3:30 and 5:15.  Most guests prefer an early arrival time (between 6:30 and 7:30) so they can enjoy dinner and social time with family and friends.  And some guests prefer a later arrival time and dine through the show.  In either case, the table is yours for the night and your arrival time is your choice.  Reservations, by phone, are highly recommended.  We do require a credit card to make a show reservation.  We do not charge anything to this card, and guests can pay for the evening as they please.  With this credit card, we guarantee each reservation and reservation time, but at the same time, each guest is guaranteeing their arrival and guest count.  The most basic price for the dinner and show is $24 per guest and this fee includes both dinner and show.  The early show on Saturdays is $19 and includes both dinner and show.  Cocktails, beverages, soups, salads, appetizers, desserts, tax and gratuity are additional.  We also have three, all-inclusive packages.  See below for more details.   

The Echoes Of Polynesia Revue:
Our show is nearly identical to a luau show one would experience in Hawaii.  Our lovely wahine and handsome kane perform a variety of dances from the South Pacific and feature the beautiful costumes of Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa, and New Zealand.  Our MC navigates your journey through the South Seas with Island insights, comedy, and audience interaction.  It's the only place in the Chicago land where you can regularly experience the exciting entertainment of Polynesia.

Our Dinner & Show Is Ideal for:
Anyone seeking a unique evening, birthdays, anniversaries, company outings, wedding events, bachelor & bachelorette parties, graduations and celebrations all kinds.  One of the main reasons our dinner and show is popular with celebrations, we always incorporate the guests of honor into the show.  Imagine if you will, while your family and friends celebrate the husband's 50th birthday, he is called on stage and instructed to join the lovely wahine dancers in a graceful hula... a hilarious Kodak moment!   Imagine if you will, while celebrating your parent's 40th wedding anniversary, the MC honors him and her with the traditional Wedding Song Dance of Hawaii.  And imagine the company CEO taking part in the fierce Haka chant with the Maori warriors (a guaranteed morale boost for your enitre party).  We love to make a memory for all the celebrations at Tiki Terrace, so make sure to let us know the special occasion when you make reservations. 

The Setting:
Tiki Terrace is situated as a showroom.  Our raised stage is centered in the dining room and can be viewed from all dining seats and from the bar.  A beautiful backdrop of 12' Easter Island Maoi statues, a state of the art sound system, and theatrical lighting & effects accompany the entertainment.
