Humuhumu’s description

Tiki Boyd's is the creation of controversial pop culture figure Boyd Rice, known to many from his early industrial/noise music outfit NON, known to tikiphiles for his essay in Taboo: The Art of Tiki. Rice is a tiki enthusiast, and a vintage music afficianado -- this bar reportedly plays music only from vinyl. Located in the Ramada Inn in downtown Denver.
In January 2006, just a few months after opening, several key players (including Boyd Rice) pulled out of the venture. The bar is now operating without Boyd's tiki decor, under a different name, and is more of a retro/rockabilly bar. The braintrust behind Tiki Boyd's is currently seeking out a new location, and hopes to open bigger & better in the months to come.

Awwww.... Tiki Boyd's is no more. They later converted it into a flat out sports bar. It was really sad and the residents of Denver miss it dearly. They used to also show a documentary there about the History of Tiki in Colorado.
