Shameful Tiki Room

Shameful Tiki Room The Shameful Tiki Room recently opened its mysterious doors on the ever-renovating strip of Main Street Vancouver in March (2013). Even before its official opening it was being whispered by many in-the-know as being the savior of all things tiki north of the US border.

With daily features, history lessons and business profiles, it’s a one-stop source for Gastown information. Over the last few weeks the Gastown Blog launched an initiative to put QR codes on old buildings where passers-by can scan the code and call up a post from the blog about that building.
