history
Luau
Atlanta, GA
Bar & Restaurant
in Atlanta, they were inspired to transform this Memphis location into a Polynesian restaurant. The transformation into Dobbs House Luau happened in 1959. Polynesian food was served buffet style, and a menu of tropical drinks was availableóbut only if you brought in your own rum and stored it in your own rum locker at the restaurant, a typical practice of the time and area. This landmark restaurant was particularly notable for the soaringly tall, narrow Moai in the parking lot.
The Memphis Dobbs House Luau closed in February 1982.
