Frankie's Tiki Room, Las Vegas' only authentic tiki bar, is now officially open to thirsty patrons 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
From the press release:
Frankie’s offers a unique drink menu that features fifteen original exotic drinks including: the Bearded Clam, a tiki twist on the classic mojito; Bombora Blast, loaded with 151 proof rum and infused with a guava-based energy drink; Bender Ender, a blend of rums, pineapple juice, papaya nectar and 160 proof rum; the Mutiny, the perfect storm of vodka, melon liqueur, Amaretto, Everclear and cranberry juice and much more. Frankie’s also offers five traditional tiki drinks: the Mai Tai, Lapu Lapu, Navy Grog, Pikake and the Zombie. All tiki drinks are priced at $8, along with a conventional full service bar at competitive local prices. For the collector at heart, Frankie’s offers eight original souvenir tiki mugs. Each mug is unique and corresponds with an original tiki drink on the menu. Tiki mugs can be purchased for $15 each, or the drink served in the mug for only $20.
Many of the world’s top tiki carvers had a hand in creating Frankie’s unique vibe. The interior was designed and built by Bamboo Ben, the world’s foremost tiki room designer. Other carvers who contributed their masterpieces to Frankie’s include Tiki Bosko, best known locally for carving the large tikis and Polynesian statues for the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in the 1990s; Crazy Al Evans, credited for his sculpture known as “Polynesian Pop” and for creating Frankie’s signature tiki, a monstrous island warrior; and Leroy Schmaltz, the godfather of all tiki carvers and recognized for creating the biggest existing tiki statue in Tahiti.
I love the slot machine tiki mug (see photo). If the quality of all the mugs as good as that one, I'm going to be losing money to more than the casinos on my next visit.
