Tanks for the heads up John-O. Looks like it’s up towards “Dazzle” and the Riviera hotel. Yea!

You know what, I saw the builds several weeks ago on Instagram, and I thought they were building a tiki-themed coffee joint. Glad to be wrong.

I would hope they reach out to the Tiki community
as the blog only says the bar manager has wine bar & gourmet food experience.

This will be very interesting to see. Especially when it's opening where the original DTBC in Palm Springs is located. But like Nui umi umi said, "lets stand back and watch".

This is good news - another indication that Palm Springs is continuing to embrace and make commitments to tiki. Who knows what additional tiki lies ahead for Palm Springs. When is it appropriate to start referring to Palm Springs as a "tiki mecca?"

Hi everyone.

Bootlegger Tiki/Ernest Coffee general manager, Gregory here. We are very excited to announce that Bootlegger Tiki will be opening in the next 2 to 3 weeks in Palm Springs, and here’s some info for all you tiki lovers out there. As you may know, we are taking over the space once occupied by Don the Beachcombers. We take pride and feel honored to be part of such history, and working hard on creating a space that Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt would be proud of. We will be using only fresh juices, homemade syrups, and small batch liqueur. Basically, think of a “speakeasy tiki bar”.

Our bar Manager, who has worked and opened some of LA’s best wine/cocktail bars and high-end restaurants over the last 12 years, will be overseeing the everyday operation. We are also pleased that our head-bartender/mixologist will be representing Bootlegger Tiki next week at the SELVAREY RUM PRESENTS THE BATTLE OF THE 111 MIXOLOGY COMPETITION FINALS at the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs.

Come visit, grab a drink, and enjoy!

Sincerely,

Gregory

Will it have bright pink and surf boards like Toucans the other "Tiki" bar there?

Maybe you could get this huge STAR at the grand opening.

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump walks down the pink carpet carrying her dog, Giggy, before a ceremony to unveil her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars on Wednesday morning, July 30, 2014 in Palm Springs, Calif.

I kid, good luck on your remodel it's good to see any true tiki bar open.
But then there are lots o fakers out there. (see Toucans for faker example)
