Humuhumu’s description

Taboo Cove opened in the Venetian casino in 2001, and was the first of the tiki revival bars to have been done with a large budget. There was fantastic decor, but in order to draw patrons, they played rotten music. The artist Bosko provided many carvings, and there were some great classic light fixtures. In December 2004, Taboo Cove was gutted for a remodel, and reopened as a non-tiki bar. Just across the hall from Taboo Cove's former location is Venus, a retro lounge-themed bar with artwork by Shag.

This bar was hidden in the front corner of the Venetian hotel. The bartender was schooled on many of the mugs on display and, looking back, I'm impressed because few bartenders know about mug makers / history. It was an oddly out of the way spot in the mammoth hotel but with great decor and the passionate bartender. I feel it could have succeeded If it were on the canal inside the main hotel. Better yet, in the better suited Mirage or Treasure Island.

I got to go to Taboo Cove one time before it closed. Wish I could have gone, again.
