Launched in 2012, Texas Tiki Week was founded by members of the Austin chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild and is a week-long celebration of tiki cocktails and culture. Bars, restaurants and brands unite for a week filled with an exotic mix of educational, social and philanthropic events. Texas Tiki Week events are predominantly held in Austin with some satellite events offered in other cities across Texas. The proceeds of Texas Tiki Week help support our chapter by sending our members to leadership conferences, providing scholarships for further education and master testing.
