Awesome! Any chance there can be more seating available (or a smaller group of people) at the Tiki Terrace Takeover? There were so few tables (and people willing to share) and drinking that much in a spinning room is a tad unsettling.

JenTiki - we couldn't agree with you more! Yes, there will be additional tables for the Tiki Tower Takeover and also we will be serving Polynesian Tidbits for everyone to snack on while they drink those delicious cocktails! I'm afraid there won't be fewer people though - this event was one of our most popular for 2015! We will definitely do whatever it takes to make the experience extraordinary!

That's great news! Maybe some nice loungy benches would add some flexibility and keep people moving, rather than camping out for the whole time when others are left standing. Just a thought.

This was definitely a highlight of this year's Hukilau. The drinks, the location, the energy in the room... it was all great!

I'll just chime in and say that the room felt relatively crowded with the people and tables that were there. I think I used a table one time for a few minutes and the folks there were perfectly kind when I asked if I could join them.

As the lines were long, I essentially got a drink and then got in the next line and was done with the previous cocktail before I got to the next. No real time for sitting or even putting my drink down.

Yes to adding some food to the event. Since it started around the dinner hour, I had not eaten and by the end of it was relatively... happy! Luckily I had eaten a big lunch.

Any thought to doing this a little bit later? Say... late enough so that it concludes just after sunset? The view would be fairly spectacular.

Looking forward to it again!

Though it is a Tiki event, I'd dig a vintage Jet Set theme for an event in that Modern wonder space. I'll dig out my sharkskin suit for the occasion and have Mrs. Swanky in a dress and heels.

We got you covered Swanky! On Thursday, June 8, 2016 we plan to transform the Pier Top Lounge into a living Shag painting. Complete with Mid-Century Furnishings, Cocktails and everyone dressed as a characters you'd see on a Shag canvas! The event is called Shag's Sky Lounge! Don't miss it!

I can't wait to see the "Tiki Tower" Sky Lounge. I hear there will be an all star cast in 2016 (again). I'm looking forward to connecting with old friends!

Hukilau was our first big tiki event.
It's a good one to start with.
