HERE COMES THE LUAU! >>>
This past summer Jason Alexander and Robyn Murphy opened the Tacoma Cabana - a downtown Tacoma rum bar that would blend in at Waikiki beach. The long, narrow space is home to an actual grass-thatched tiki bar, authentic Mai Tais and Zombies served in real tiki glasses, exotic live fish behind the bar and Gilligan and friends looping on the boob tube.
Good news! Tacoma Cabana is expanding.
In fact, thank the tiki gods as Tacoma Cabana is invading what was once the home of underage club NRG.
Friday, Feb. 15 - on Cabana's weekly Fez Friday discount cocktail day - is the anticipated opening date for its neighboring location. Surprise! The new space sticks with the tiki theme - decked out in a tropical motif with a dedicated Mai Tai bar, pool table, shuffleboard and a Gilligan's Island pinball machine. The big attraction will be a raised stage that will house live music, including Hawaiian and Polynesian bands.
Though the new room location will only be open Fridays and Saturdays, the rest of the week it will be available for catered party rentals.
Make sure to get your Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts ready. Tacoma Cabana is hoping to begin monthly luau shindigs too. That means tiki burlesque and hula lessons!

Banff National Park is a breath of fresh air. A small mountain town with world class facilities...
Too many cover-bands play at The Swiss.
