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.
