I may have to find a way to head west in the near future. This place looks like far too much fun!

Sweet Pea, I'm not sure when we are going to Frankie's but it will be good to see you at VLV12 again. I guess 24/7 means we can go anytime....woohoo.

"...
Frankie's Tiki Room
Las Vegas Bars & Clubs » Off-Strip West » Indie Bar
1712 W. Charleston Blvd. (Shadow Ln.)
702-385-3110
frankiestikiroom.com

Las Vegas has long needed an authentic tiki bar
and Frankie's Tiki Room more than fills all the requirements.

Once a humble dive, the small bar retains interesting vintage
architectural details, but has been fully refitted with palm matting,
blowfish lamps, and a seven-foot handcarved tiki god
that occasionally exhales dry ice.

Owned by Double Down proprietor Moss,
Frankie's draws a similar cool local crowd,
tiki culture aficionados from around the world,
and the occasional patient from the nearby hospital.

The Psycho Tiki D Evil Trio ventured out to Frankie's Tiki Room for their dear old dad last night to capture and take hostage the eight offerings of tiki mugs from the depths of the bar. The Evil Trio had been attending a family reunion with my ex-outlaw's family in St. George Utah.

They made a very short and quick photo-less stop at Trader Vic's to pick me up the Las Vegas TV Hula Girl lidded mug. The Evil Trio was not at all impressed with TV and hastily made their departure.

The Evil Trio attempted to use cell phone GPS technology to find Frankie's, but alas, became lost. After traveling some distance in the wrong direction on W. Charleston, they circled back around and found their target.































Being this was the first time that any one of the Evil Trio had ever been in a "Tiki" bar, outside of my house, The Evil Trio were extremely impressed with Frankie's.

Had it not been for an 11 hour ride home and six kids in the car (two of the Evil Trio's husbands took turns watching the Evil Grand kids and going in and out of Frankie's) the Evil Trio would have stayed and had some drinks and chilled for the night. The Evil Trio loved Frankie's!

But alas, The Evil Trio only had one mission...to pick up all eight of Frankie's Tiki Room mugs for me...


I was hoping Frankie's would have thrown in some matchbooks and swizzle sticks, since The Evil Trio told the staff they were on a mission for their Psycho dad. Luckily, Evil Trio Oldest Sister swiped one swizzle for dad (she was afraid to take more than one). I need to talk to her about the subtle "borrowing" of such items as menus, swizzles and matchbooks, but The Evil Trio were tired, hungry and had a very long drive ahead of them.

Thanks kiddos! You did you old man proud. I love you all so very much!

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and so are The Evil Trio)!

oh hey, for all the kids going to vegas for viva, if you are getting there early, you should come on by the Hooch and Smooch at The Orleans. It's not tiki, and it's in an Irish bar, but I have the party every year and it's usually pretty dang fun and ya meet some new folks for the weekend.
add the Hooch and Smooch Myspace page if yer over there.
www.myspace.com/hoochnsmooch

Also, Let's try to figure out what a good time to meet up
on Monday April 13 would be...

Made the pilgrimage from North Cal to Frankie's this past Sunday night. I know, not the wildest night to go but it was the only night the wife and I could get there to celebrate our Bdays (they are a day apart). The upside was we had the place to ourselves and could soak it all in. Man did they nail it......10 out of 10. The work of all the artists (Bamboo Ben et al) is apparent everywhere you look. It's a Tiki-phile museum! The awesome juke box topped it all off. Everything from the drinks, the mugs, the swizzlers.......all top notch...and this comes from someone who frequents the Emeryville Trader Vics and Forbidden Island. Tonya was our bartender and she was the coolest! No trip to Sin City is complete without a stop at Frankies.


The now familiar sign


The Promised Land


My better half deciding on what to order next


Something about this place keeps reminding me of topless dancers........


The one on the left is coming home to a place of honor among my collection.

Thanks for a great time!
