This Coachella weekend proved not to include a secret Kendrick release, but it did have another trick up its sleeve. Please Don't Tell, the New York speakeasy, hosted a secret tiki bar on the Coachella campground. The entrance was hidden in plain sight in the General Admission Craft Beer Barn where the only things marking the location were some flowers and door girls; that is, until the wait to get in was upwards of 2 hours long.

Officially called the S.S. Coachella PDTiki, the bar had a small capacity of 30 people and offered a full tiki experience, with drinks, decor, and classic glasses to round out the experience.

Please Don't Tell in New York is a speakeasy located behind Crif Dogs in the East Village. The entrance is through a pay phone in the small hot dog restaurant, and it's possible to order food from Crif's while getting elaborate cocktails at PDT. It's a not-so-secret secret bar, just like its Tiki equivalent at Coachella.

The S.S. Coachella PDTiki will remain open for Weekend Two of Coachella.
