Peeked in the front door and through a hole in the paper covering the window.

VERY NICE! It looks great and appropriate for who, what and where it is.

I'll start saving for one of those spendy Grog Log cocktails now.
The drinks better be as nice as the finishes inside.

Cheers
Mark

This being LA, which A-List Celebs are going to grace the opening?
Otherwise, no press; no buzz, etc.

Aloha,

For those of you out there that are willing to try something new, LUAU ( 2008), will be opening it's doors to the
public real soon (last week of Oct.).

It was a real honor for me to be able to work on this project
as my Grandfather Eli Hedley worked on the original ( 1954)The Luau.

MAhalo Nui Loa,

Bamboo Ben

That history note is so cool. We saw the magic you accomplished at the Kon Tiki in Tucson as shown in these photos. I hope we can visit the Luau when we go to Oasis next summer and see what you have created there. Wendy

My wife just forwarded me an e-mail posting from urbandaddy.com to announce the opening of the restaurant. I'm not a member, so I can't give you a direct link, but here's the content of the posting along with their photo of the new interior:


"Sure, you generally favor a good scotch—but lately you've been craving...a secret-recipe cocktail supped from a giant coconut.

Luau rises from the dead on Friday in Beverly Hills, with a new look and an old cocktail menu so hush-hush that it literally had to be decoded (more on that later).

Once home to many a Rat Pack binge (like every place in LA with a liquor license), the new Luau brings you an upscale Balinese vibe—think Murano glass-tiled walls and lamps made from puffer fish—to go with those booze-filled tree fruits. And if you need something a little more substantial, we can vouch for the tasty Banana Leaf-Wrapped Halibut. But the Pupu Platter with Wagyu Meatballs is better for sharing with somebody you wouldn't mind seeing in a hula skirt later.

And as for those drinks, original owner Steve "Mr. Lana Turner" Crane was so paranoid about his concoctions, he recorded all his recipes in code. (Talk about dedication to the craft.) So when reopening Luau thirty years later, the man behind Il Sole hired esteemed tiki mixologist/cocktail detective Jeff Berry, who'd already cracked it. Now you can have your BoLo, Pearl Diver and Luau Coconut like Sinatra before you...but you can't ask what's in them.

Though your refined palate just might detect a splash of rum.

Luau, opens Friday, 369 N. Bedford Dr (between Wilshire and Brighton), Beverly Hills, 310-274-0090"

I think the picture of the dining room is actual size.

Seriously.
