Actually the Bigbro pointed that out on the Bahooka memories thread. But since this one has been created let me state this...

I don't want the Bahooka to be reborn at Clifton's !!

I was really hoping that the new "Tiki" bar would be a literal homage to the 1940's Pre-Tiki style that existed at the Pacific Seas. Check out that super cool neon palm tree...



Do you see any nautical style, flotsam or jetsam, or even Tikis in that picture ??

No, but adding some would definitely improve it!

From what I read, it's being billed as a 21st century version of Clifton's original Pacific Seas Cafeteria. So in a way it's still an homage to the original Pacific Seas but with more. And as long as there are no party city clown tikis, I can't complain.

Sounds like the best possible thing that could have happened! I'm really looking forward to it... Clifton's Brookdale is already an amazing, one of a kind place, and it's only going to get better! It's incredible good fortune for us that so much from Bahooka will still be together, for us to enjoy in an appropriate atmosphere.

I see it as two lost tiki establishments being given a new lease on life... I certainly can't find anything about which to complain in this scenario.

Now imagine that any remnants of Bahooka never resurfaced anywhere. And that nobody thought enough of The Pacific Seas to feel it warranted any sort of rebirth.

Please try to appreciate our good fortune to have what we still have, to have memories of great things past, and be grateful of what the future holds in store for us tikiphiles.

A few facts:

The NEW South Seas Cliftons will be just one of many themed rooms in the place. It will be upstairs in the front, facing Broadway (but with limited, if at all window space).

It will be an homage to the golden age of travel, before jets.

It will neither be an exact replica of Clifton's Pacific Seas, nor of Bahooka's - it will be its own thing.

I have been working intimately with the owner of Clifton's now for many months and can assure everbody that the end result will be nothing short of breathtaking. The owner has a keen sense of the history of the property and is working with some of the best collaborators to restore it to it's original days of grandeur! It's gonna be... AWESOME!!

So that's why the yardsale never happened.

At least it gets a good home. I look forward to going there. Make it a Clifton's/Trader Vic's two-fer.

Here's another article, this one from Zagat (Blog). Similar content but a more appropriate title:

Aloha CincyTikiCraig!

Don't sweat it... the title is accurate enough, and intriguing! It's not like you said BAHOOKA REOPENS!!!! or anything like that.

I wouldn't have known the specifics if you hadn't started the thread!


And I'm sure it generated interest! Plus, it's an interesting topic, in any event!
