This is our home tiki bar in las vegas nv.
we are renting our house so we arent able to do everything we want to it










My fiance' made this light out of swizzle sticks from Frankies tiki room. We live real close to there.

Pretty extensive remodel for a rental (no white ceilings or walls) and great use of those swizzle sticks. Looks like you've got a fine place to relax and unwind.

Damn Trader Brittle Britches. Easy on the guy, it is just a home bar. I made a sign for a home bar by the same name YEARS ago .

I'm sure there are others out there, that's not the point. There is a thread on here where folks post the names of their tiki bars and it's loaded with all kinds of creative names and signs and such, no two really alike. A quick search of T.C. would have revealed any conflict of interested. It's kind of an unwritten rule that you don't hijack someone else's name. In this instance, common courtesy was overlooked, that's all. I just find it irritating, especially from a newbie.

Fantastic bar. You've put a lot of work in there.
(P.S. I don't think the name Headhunter Hideaway is exclusive).

thanks brainiac !! that wasn't the point... I think i may change the name of my bar to whatever yours is called and start a new thread here on tiki central...

I know if the tables were turned and I took someone elses bar name, or such thing, half of tiki central would be coming after me with torches and pitchforks....

maybe I will write a tiki book and call it "the ultimate book of tiki" or "tiki modern extraordinaire " .... Har !!

Hey, just strolling the pages to get some inspiration
for my own home Tiki Bar.
Well done on your bar! AND in a rental!
Even if the name isn't as creative as some
would like, Id still rather sink a few cocktails
in your bar than at someone else's on here..
at least you'd probably make me feel
welcome..and the conversation would probably
be based on what Tiki is all about.. having fun,
not complaining! Great stuff man!
Oh ya, your fiancÚ did a great job with the swizzle
sticks.

Dear "Tipsy McSwagger", Firstly, My sincerest apologies. I have to admit that I didn't do my research before I let my 14 year old nephew name my bar (he named it all on his own, and he felt like a big boy for doing so). That being said. Your name is truly original. You both in fact must be so well studied in the rich history of tiki culture that you both had thought of the same name! In his defense, however, he is only 14...I'm sure that your bar is a gem to see. May you, perhaps, post a link to your bar and its affiliated pictures. I would be extremely interested to see. Perhaps, you and he (my 14 year old nephew) have come up with other similar coincidences. Actually, now that were on that point. Isn't it weird coincidences exist? Such a wild notion, that more than 1 person can come up with a similar or exact same whatever it is. Such a wild notion. Am I right? Anyway, my dearest apologies "Tipsy McCrybaby" I'm sure we both have real problems to deal with, than to point fingers on a messageboard...or maybe we don't. I have all of the time in the world, if you care to discuss further. Come over for a virgin pina colada. I bought the ingrediants and renamed it after your screenname. Anyway, come over sometime, I'm looking forward to it...

I was merely trying to say that I didn't think The Headhunter Hideaway was a particularly unusual or exclusive name/idea. And really, isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?
I certainly wasn't trying to insult anyone. Apologies if it was taken that way.

see? now that's a pretty clever response.... you took more time to come up with that than the name of your bar....maybe you should have named your bar and not your nephew.....


I expected just as much from a newbie..... carry on.
