I have been dreading this day. The University of Louisville has been encroaching on the Luau Room site for the past few years, buying and knocking down factories and bars in order to build a forest of high rise dormitories. Now someone wants the space on which the Luau Room stands.
I do not know if any of the decor remains. I was contacted several years ago by someone who was selling a few pieces on Ebay. I was both dismayed and perplexed, as I had always heard that the owner refused to sell any part of it, and had all the original tables and chairs in storage. Of course, I know now that he passed not too long after I posted my original message here. I do not know who inherited the property or what their feelings are regarding it. I have been wondering for some time why someone could not see the potential in a bar space, tricked out in full Tiki, located a stone's throw from multiple high rise dorms.
Here is the link to the development proposal:
