Aloha TCer's I wanted to welcome you all to Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge in Kailua Kona, HI (opening in September). This lounge is a dream come true for my wife and me, and we're excited to share it with you all as well as extend some public shout-outs and mahalos. There is a fabulous Tiki Farm custom mug in progress (mahalo to Holden) with other shwag in the works. The vintage Hawaiian-themed decor will be done with the help of AliiTiki and the crew at Bamboo Too. Please feel free to visit our website, still under construction but looking great(mahalo to MauiRob)--www.okolemalunalounge.com. You can also get the most up-to-date information through our Facebook page.

We want to extend a warm Aloha and E Komo Mai to you all and let you know if you mention Tiki Central during your visit there will be some great perks. So if you plan on making the trip to Big Island and are looking for the spot to relax and enjoy a classic tiki bar experience (as well as an authentic, hand-crafted cocktail), we hope you'll come see us. We're also attending Tiki Oasis so we hope to meet plenty folks there.

Okolemaluna's mission: to provide guests with a high-quality, memorable experience in a stylist yet welcoming and unpretentious environment. This means delivering impeccable cocktails and appetizing pupus at reasonable prices in a casual, yet exotic, atmosphere.

Sounds fantastic! All the best to you for making your
dream a reality on the Big Island. Look forward to hanging
and drinking at Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge on our visit later this year.

YeeHaw and Congrats, Brice! After sipping a few of your concoctions, I knew you would really do this. Hawai'i Island (aka the Big Island) needs more Tiki Bars, and yours is stumbling distance from the condo we stay at in Kona. Can't wait to join you guys with a mai tai.

Congrats again. Keep us posted on which date you plan to be Opening Day! And good luck on the mai tai contest!!

Aloha and Cheers. Hope to see you two at Tiki Oasis next month!

At least we can check out the external decor....and maybe get drunk outside.
I found the location on your website. Will you have a drive-thru Mai Tai window with a talking Tiki to take our orders or at least tell our troubles to?

Will you be able to understand the talking Tiki order-taker though? "Aloha! Welcome to, uh, welcome, uh, *hic*, um, whaddya want dude?"

Best of Luck Brice...I LOVE Kona, and am in need of a visit.

Google maps is showing the address as Island Lava Java, a fave place of mine. Is it next door ?

If so, you got a helluva view !

I'm sorry but the Liquor Commission wouldn't let put in the stumble-thru Moai. Even if we aren't open yet we can still go for a drink! Send me a message when you're going to be here.

We are indeed in the same complex as Lava Java, but a little further back. We are in the process of posting some pictures to the website, but can't imagine anyone wants to see me chipping out tile or drywall. We are going to be taking a short construction break for Tiki Oasis 10 this year, so hope to meet y'all!

Quick update: OK, with bureaucracy being on Hawaiian time & all, our projected opening is pushed back a few weeks, into October.

But the GOOD NEWS:

From deep in the Okolemaluna Test Kitchen comes the first taste test of our EXCLUSIVE, Beachbum Berry-created, cocktail. May we present the Mele Kalikimaka! Verdict: deliciousness!! But we may have to make several more just to be sure...
