I’ve always loved Tiki! It was a all the rage in the 50’s and 60’s. A few months ago, I wrote about some of our famous Tiki homes in the historic neighborhoods and about one of the most famous Tiki Bars in the world that was torn down in Columbus Ohio where I grew up.
It looks like we’ll get another chance to fall in love with polynesian themed cocktail lounges once again.
City Life reports:
On Dec. 4, Frankie’s Bar and Cocktail Lounge (1712 W. Charleston Blvd.) becomes Frankie’s Tiki Room. This has been Double Down Saloon proprietor Moss’s new project since January, and he’s got the support and participation of tiki-culture icons and artists like Bosko. Frankie’s promises to be an authentic tiki room, the first since the Venetian shuttered the original Venus club (unless you count tourist trap Trader Vic’s, and we doubt Moss does), that will still honor the original bar in name and neon.
