The place is called Frankie’s Tiki Room. On Otto von Stroheim’s Tiki Events mailing list I read it’s an authenticly styled bar with lots of bamboo, tapa and contemporary Tiki art. Reportedly the drinks are very good!
Here’s a quote from the newsletter:
Frankie’s Tiki Room, the only authentic tiki bar in Las Vegas, invites guests to experience the one-of-a-kind tiki environment complemented by traditional carvings, original Polynesian art, a full bar and gaming.
Frankie’s Tiki Room is a unique combination of South Seas exotica and modern primitivism, with just a hint of Las Vegas kitsch. Frankie’s was founded by P Moss, the creator of the infamous Double Down Saloon, located in Las Vegas and New York City. One hundred percent original and deeply rooted in tiki tradition, Frankie’s is the place where guests can escape to the fantasy any hour of the day or night. Whether it’s ordering from the menu of exotic rum drinks and traditional cocktails in the tiki lounge, gambling at the bar, admiring the carvings or enjoying the music, Frankie’s Tiki Room does it in classic Las Vegas style.
The interior of Frankie’s was built by Bamboo Ben, the world’s foremost tiki bar designer and grandson of Eli Hedley, who created the décor for the legendary Aku Aku at the Stardust. Frankie’s link to Las Vegas’ tiki past also includes original carvings by Tiki Bosko, who created exotic works of art not only at the Tropicana, but also the short lived but greatly missed Taboo Cove at the Venetian. Frankie’s signature tiki is a monstrous island warrior by Crazy Al Evans, surrounded by extraordinary carvings by Tiki Ray and the much revered godfather of all tiki carvers, Leroy Schmaltz.
