Humuhumu’s description

Atomic Lagoon is the home tiki bar of Richard Ridley and Steve Bultemeyer in Phoenix, Arizona. The bar was created in April 2017. The name is a nod to their house: "Atomic" for its mid-century modern design, and "Lagoon" for its original 1963 lava rock fountain and pond. The mid-century modern bar has a built-in glass case used to display tiki mugs. There is a liquor cabinet which is able to rotate to display the content either outdoors behind the bar, or inside the interior of the house. The lava rock fountain is surrounded by 50-year-old Mediterranean palms. Atomic Lagoon is used for tiki parties, lounging during the warm Phoenix evenings, and gives them an oasis in the desert.

Hubby and I were lucky enough to be there for the first pouring of alcohol. They did an AMAZING job!

Opening day, it was the jewel of the Phoenix Modern Home Tour. About 1000 people walked through their lovely home and people were blown away by the Atomic Lagoon. Many people told me they wanted to stay, party there, live in there lol, and many came back through for a 2nd tour. I believe the Atomic Lagoon even created some new Tikiphiles; awakening the tiki in visitors that didn't know they loved Tiki!

So comfortable, inviting, cool and beautiful in every way. The perfect execution of 'Modern Tiki'.

Mahalo to Richard and Steve for lovingly creating it to perfection! Long live you both and The Atomic Lagoon!
