Quirky, summery, fun outdoor bar

I'm thinking about having a Thursday night birthday party in Manhattan. I'm looking for something different, quirky, fun..I need a hook!

I've done Waikiki Wallys (last year, there was no a/c...it really was like being in Hawaii!), Otto's Shrunken Head, Ninja, etc.

I want something a little goofy, with an outdoor option or something with really good drinks that's only slightly kitschy. Personal favorites as far as themes are: Elvis, tiki, 1950s kitsch, diners, anything dreamlike, funny, or extreme (too divey? good! too slick? possibly good!)

I don't go out as much as I used to so I'm not as up on what's going on.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
