Thank you guys for all of the encouragement. It has been a pleasure to design and work on this awesome project. i guess the cats out of the bag so here is a tiny sneak peek .
pre and post wwII exotic and nautical artifacts I have collected for a very special room I am doing. I am striving to do my best and use all of my skills to create a perfect traditional tiki room. Chinese newsprint on corrugated roofing, vintage Chinese tiles, Neou Panels, vintage tapa, an authentic 14 foot outrigger,SQUARE bamboo, and no imported tikis!

Amy:

As a long time desert resident, I am so THRILLED to see that you have helped to bring a real tiki bar to our desert. Honestly, LA , San Francisco, and San Diego were getting to be too far to drive for a great drink and some wonderful atmosphere.

I intend to be a regular.

I intend to bring my friends so they can be regulars.

I am wondering, will you be serving RAMAKI. It really does have a history in our desert. Maybe a healthy version if anything.

I saw the place from the outside the other day and simply can't wait to your open.

What's the ETA.

Thank you and everyone who is a part of this venture.

And for all of you none Desert Rats, Palm Springs is becoming quite the hip spot for Handcrafted cocktails. The movement out here is taking hold.

From the Workshop, The Bar, and even the IW club, it seems people are getting the idea that good drinks matter. What has been missing from this movement is the quality atmosphere that a great tiki place can bring.

My hope is that the Chamber of Commerce will capitalize on this movement and help spread the word that Palm Springs is the place for hip drinkers everywhere. The Tonga Hut is coming to the right spot.

By the way, from looking at the videos of the place so far and comparing them to your competition - the place will absolutely blow the competition out of the water once the word gets out.

Yours,

Telescopes, AKA Doc

Thanks Doc! We( Kevin, Claudia, Jeremy and myself) are very excited as well. We knew Palm Springs history and we hope we can bring a little tiki magic back to Palm Sorings. We will keep you posted on our opening!

Had a great time at THPS. What a great looking venue - So, who are the tikiphiles out here other than myself who can help put together a TC night each week at Tonga Hut Palm Springs once it is officially open.

Questions: Are Happy Hours on the horizon?

Will bands be a regular happening?

Also, I have to say, the manager? - the woman, I think her name is Wen (I am guessing on the spelling) seemed on the ball, interested in doing things correctly, and on top of her game. My daughter and I had great service. The rumaki was SO spot on. In fact, all of the dishes were fantastically done in a way that would have made Donn himself smile.

And the decor - from the Bali Hai type map on the balcony, the bar, the dining room, and the secret room with its back balcony, will really make people trip. Remember how tiki was an escapist get away. Well, this place will do it for you and actually has its own secrets.

Congratulations to everyone at THPS!

Lost Tonga Hut pendant, help needed! I lost my Tonga Hut pendant at Tonga Hut Palm Springs last night ... Most likely it fell off somewhere in the Tonga Hut. It is of the utmost importance because it is supposed to be the master used to make more TH pendants. The pendant is a pale gray/green with "Tonga Hut" written on the back. Please return to me or Tonga Hut, it would be greatly appreciated!
