I just got off the phone with Suzanne Schneiders of the Bahooka and I'm sorry to say that our beloved Bahooka Restaurant is closing their doors. They do plan on keeping the name for a line of goods to be sold in supermarket settings. Well, sad news aside, Suzanne asked that I let you all know and that furthermore, they are selling off all of the many items throughout the establishment that aren't "glued to the walls". The Bahooka is located at 4501 N. Rosemead Blvd in Rosemead, CA and their tel is (626) 285-1241.

I think we all should collectively plan a night to visit the Bahooka to celebrate their significant history in this thing that we love called Tiki. If somebody would like to plan that out and start that thread, that'd be great!

Aaaaaaaaaargh! That SUCKS!

They were my closest neighborhood Tiki bar for many years. And now I'm up here in Portland, so I probably won't get to visit one last time.

Somebody grab me one of those red plastic parrots before they hit the dumpster.

Didn't The Hula Girls just film there for some show not too long ago?

I am in town next weekend and will be sure to stop in

Such a shame

How truly sad that another historic spot is closing.

I'm glad that my entire family had a chance to experience it. It sucks that so many places are closing.

I just spoke with the Bahooka and I'm planning to organize one last hurrah for the Tiki Community.

Update - This event is scheduled for Sun, Mar 10th at 5pm...

NNNNNNNNNnnnnnnnnnooooooooOOOOOOOOOO!

From the original post, it doesn't sound like there's a chance that they'd consider selling the business & location?
If so, that's really too bad.

Anyone know why the place is closing?

I feel like someone punched me in the chest. I love the Bahooka! This just makes me want to run out there and enjoy it as much as possible before it shuts down forever. Anyone want to join me tonight?

This sucks. Such a staple in the TC realm of nautical/tiki/polypop haunts to visit! I am deeply saddened and bummed to hear this.
My first visit, I got lost after looking for the bathroom..(although it might've been the bowls we drank, but still)

again, this sucks.
