We are as pleased as Planter's Punch to report that we are open (soft opening), beginning this Tuesday! We had a private preview party on Sat. night and it went pretty well, I think (photos are forthcoming from others, I believe). We're still working on adding layers to the decor and we're dialing everything in, but we have an amazing staff and we're ready to start serving Kona fresh and authentic tropical cocktails! Hope to see you all soon.

By the way, the Dec. 5th date is our grand opening date, but we will be open until then as well...regular hours are 3-11 during the week, 3-12 on weekends, closed Monday.

See you soon, Smileys!

Aloha,

Good to see you got some of the Travana carved statues from the Hawaiian Hut! You can see them in my book "Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs" in their original locations.

Much success to you both!

Wow guys, congrats to such a wonderful job! Kona NEEDS such a place! The locals AND the tourists should love this!
I wanna give you more paper ephemera for your glass table tops! I think customers should bring in stuff to donate! There's room on the walls.

We agree, BigBro! Everyone should send us their Hawaiian floatsam & jetsam...

Seriously, big mahalos to everyone for their good wishes and support. We hope to be here in Kona for a nice long time so we can serve all TC'ers, locals, and other visitors the best damn tropical drinks in Hawaii!

Looking forward to seeing you soon. Whenever you stop by, please introduce yourself. We met several TCers already and can't wait to meet more.

Okolemaluna!

Brice - HUGE conratz on your opening. There is alot of Tiki in Kona, and now there is even more...and by one of our own to boot.

Now I need to book a Big Island trip to visit.

Kona locals and exotic travelers...SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL TIKI BAR !!!!

Conga-rats Brice! The place looks terrific.
Matt the Cat and his wife TikiMookie from Sacramento are in Kona right now so I e-mailed them your location info. Hopefully I will be out there in the next year or so.

Okay, this place needs a bump, 'cause it's awesome! Kona DOES need a tiki bar, and this one is done quite well...It looks proper and the drinks are proper (the pupus are tasty too)! We arrived at the Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge on our second night as per Maestro Bacchi's suggestion (thanks Jim!). Sherriyaki and I walked in wearing our Tikiyaki gear, and Brice came over with excitement over our clothing choice as he, Lisa and the rest of the crew welcomed us with open arms. We're planning on going back a few times during our visit, it's worth the drive! This place is a must if you make it to the BIG island. They've updated the place a bit since the last photos were posted, so I'm adding some of my own...

Ms. VanTiki and I are heading to Kona on thursday to volunteer at the 2011 ironman. Yes, it will be cool to see all the world-class athletes and catch their $5,000 bikes as they zip into the transition area - but the *real* reason I am excited is I finally get to go to OkoleMaluna! Can't wait! Hotel is in walking distance - so I'm thinking we will be making multiple visits

Thanks for the recent pictures Tonga Tom. Mrs Slob and I will be visiting Okolemaluna in October right after the Ironman thing. We will be staying within staggering distance so will have to visit a couple of times before we move up the coast to the next destination. Those pictures really feed the fire. Looks really cool there.
Brice and Lisa, see you in October after the Ironman.
A hui hou,
Tiki Slob
