The Golden Tiki Las Vegas Grand Opening

by Branden Powers
I’m just catching my breath now from the incredible Grand Opening party we had Wednesday night at The Golden Tiki. Just one month in from our doors opening and it has already been an incredible ride! 

To celebrate formally, I brought in the legendary King Kukulele to host and entertain everyone, along with our house DJ Rex Dart, and a couple of gorgeous hula dancers to greet the crowd and perform a traditional blessing.

Our Bar Manager Jeffrey Alexander created a fantastic Sailor Jerry spiced rum Grog just for the occasion, we had a cool volcano cake by Showboy Bake Shop, some solid ribs and fried rice, and our lovely servers passed out Dole Whip for everyone too. 

Some of my favorite local luminaries came out to wish us well, including Dirk Vermin from AnE’s Bad Ink, who showed me his Hunter S Thompson tattoo, the legendary Monti Rock III, Burlesque star LouLou D’Vil and my favorite mermaid Ms. Redd. 

Billy the Crud even decided to carve a new tiki right there, by hand, and the son of Lord Baltimore was wandering around showing guests his father’s shrunken head and other hidden secrets around the place.

Oh, did I forget to mention, we got a Proclamation from the Clark County Commissioner? That was pretty cool too. But the coolest part is how great all of my staff has been in supporting this crazy dream. 

The drinks here aren’t easy to make—they take time and TLC—but they are worth it to see the smiles on our guests’ faces, both during the Grand Opening, and every night. Come visit our enchanted island! We're always open!
