Took my little brother to Frankies last night for his 21st birthday. Carmello the bartender knew his first drink as an official legitimate of age and first tiki bar experience was to be a Zombie. He drank that with the bravado of a matador fighting a bull. He finished that one and requested an Irish car bomb. I looked at him with dissapointment and reminded him he was in a tiki bar and that there is no Guiness in Frankies. He decided to go with a Bender Ender, which he drank out of his new tiki mug and sipped on that one a little more cautiously and began to feel a little warm and fuzzy. We did a tour of Frankies and admired all the artwork and carvings and i gave him a little background on the artists. Mrs. Mongoloid did the Shag hidden vice game and it was revealed she was into Smut! Carmello set off the fog machine in front of the massive Crazy Al tiki and we watched Camp Burlesque on the flat screen and listened to Exotica and surf music from the juke box. He finished with a mai tai and looked at me and confessed that he was drunk. I smiled and hugged him and wished him Happy Birthday! Frankies is an amazing place with the collaboration of all the top notch artists and carvers that has a cozy feel and the drinks are excellent. I wish it was in my backyard, but my brother who lives in Vegas told Carmello that he will be seeing him again soon. Before we left this morning to come back to So Cal i woke him up to say goodbye and he sat up and said he was still drunk. I told him to check into rehab or go back to Frankies.

Moss wanted me to tell all the Tiki Freaks that Frankies is now Tweeting?

twitter.com/FrankiesTiki

Also Facebooking and Myspacing too.

Enjoy.

Just back from Las Vegas... made it to Frankies... WOW!


Absolutely love the place-- this is what tiki bars are meant to be! First, as you get to the parking lot, you notice that this is a small, unassuming building. (Perfect!) Then, as you enter you see nothing. That's because your eyes need to adjust to the dark interior. (Perfect!) Then you see how every square inch is great tiki, no attempt at pleasing everyone. (Perfect!) Then you taste your Zombie... Perfect!

Tiki fans should not miss Frankies!

2 or 3 times every week we will send out a tweet with a secret word of the day. Be among the first 3 people to stop by Frankie's Tiki Room and say the secret word to the bartender and your first drink is free.

Check us out at twitter.com/FRANKIESTIKI and every week you might be drinking on the house.

Mahalo

SWANGULO DESIGN will be there!
I (big mike) will be playing in our Punk-DEVO-cover band at the double down Sept 18th and plan on visiting the one and only Tiki Bar for sure (possibly every day from 16th-20th. We have been looking forward to seeing/drinking at this place since it opened and we have a perfect opportunity to do so now.
Cant wait!

We're finally making it to Frankie's this weekend! Boyfriend is playing Double Down during ROLLERCON (with Pat Todd & the Rankoutsiders) and we plan to hit Frankie's beforehand.

Allegedly 108 degrees on Saturday, so I can't wait for a frosty tiki cocktail in what looks to be an incredible setting.

Woohoo!

This was taken last month. I love my mugs. The bearded clamshell hit the spot.

I finally made it out to Vegas and got to see Frankie's. Wow, what an awesome bar. Ben and all the artists did a fantastic job. It's the kind of bar most people wish was in their hometown. Here are some current pics of Frankie's.










my brother


this is what it looks like your first 15 minutes in the place.... took forever for my eyes to adjust!













Looking forward to my next Vegas trip even more than usual now...

Wow it looks like you were there pretty early. The place looks empty.

That's the great thing about Frankie's, you can have Zombie's for breakfast !!

I'm sure Frankie's is a great bar, but until I make it over that way I'll have to make do with the mug I ordered from the website. Thanks guys, for firstly having a webstore that ships over to the other side of the world at the click of a button and for secondly doing it so promptly. I really don't now why more bars don't do the same thing. And thanks for the bonus swizzles and matches!
