The Polo Tavern and Tiki


The award-winning Polo Tavern is without a doubt Aiken's most popular watering hole. We feature live music every weekend and never charge a cover charge! The Polo Tavern was awarded”Best Bar” in 2009, 2011, & 2012 and "Best Place for Live Music" in the Aiken Standard's Best of the Best for 2008, 2009, 2011, & 2012.

Outside of the Polo Tavern’s back door is the Tiki Tavern, an outdoor patio bar. Come and savor the outdoor "Margaritaville" atmosphere while sipping on your favorite cocktail. Also, enjoy a variety of draft beers on tap! The Tiki Tavern was awarded "Best New Bar" in Aiken in 2006 and "Best Bar" 2009 and 2010 by readers of Augusta Magazine.

Both bars are open 7 days a week. The Polo Tavern is open Monday-Saturday at 3:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. and at 4:00 p.m. on Sundays until 2:00 a.m. The Tiki Tavern opens at 5:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. daily, weather permitting.
