Mild winter notwithstanding, we all could use a dose of the tropics.

Restaurateur Lee Mikles has (1) an enclosed roof deck with a lovely view and (2) a fun imagination.

He’s turned Grain Craft Bar + Kitchen in Kennett Square into the Aloha Room, a tiki bar, for the foreseeable future. That means staff in Hawaiian shirts (and wearing Greg Brady-style tiki pendants), scorpion bowls and other umbrella drinks (some frozen), strings of lights, thatched roofs, and tiki everything.

Cheesy fun? Sure.

There’s a mural that’s perfect for Instagram photos. TVs play clips of old movies and TV shows with tropical themes.

The dedicated menu goes all out, too, with a tropical edge.

Fan of pineapple? It’s on the Polynesian chicken, in the slaw that tops the Kalua pork sliders, and atop the blackened mahi mahi.
