3 out of 5 stars

Run by Major Food Group (The Grill, The Pool, Carbone, and Dirty French) The Polynesian is a handsome tiki bar in Hell’s Kitchen located in Pod Times Square Hotel. 

Awash in deep-turquoise walls and old-world landscape murals under high ceilings with wooden beams, it's the crown jewel of tiki-themed bars, where there's actually buried treasure inside. Heads turn as the waiters carry the Exotica Bowl, a very large-format pearl-in-the-oyster cocktail smoking with dry ice, and the fruity Barbossa’s Punch, a ceramic treasure chest filled with splashes of pineapple rum, apple brandy, grenadine and curaçao.

And while a bar serving drinks in conch shells, boats, and skulls in the heart of Times Square might sound tacky, it's just as elevated and exciting as Major Food Group's other sought-after establishments. 

The Polynesian says
The Polynesian, its ultimate ode to Tiki, led by global Tiki apostle Brian Miller, a veteran craft bartender of more than two decades, The Polynesian is unprecedented in ambition and scope, honoring Tiki’s past and reinvigorating it for generations to come. Located in Midtown West’s new Pod Times Square Hotel (400 West 42nd St.), The Polynesian accommodates 200 guests split equally between its indoor space and outdoor terrace, each with its own full-sized bar. The terrace also offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city.
