Coconut Club

"Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen." This is how Darren Herczeg, emcee and Tiki Master, will start off an evening at The Coconut Club, repeating the greeting multiple times as he calls up diners to spin a wheel of fortune; toast Vulcan, god of fire; or dig into a Box of Wonders for a special prize (fingers crossed for the mix CD). But let us back up. The Coconut Club, helmed by Herczeg, founder Andy Windak, and mixologist Nathan Hazard, began as a tiki-themed pop-up dinner, and has morphed into a more cocktail-oriented event: three courses of beautiful, heavily garnished beverages, like coffee-rubbed steak suspended over a rum and blue curaçao libation. Held in various locations throughout LA (The Hermosillo and The Fonda have been lucky enough to play host), the evening usually has two slots available: a casual happy hour shindig where you are encouraged to don Hawaiian shirts; and a later, more formal event where attendees show up in sequins and fezzes. To find out when the next tropical soiree will take place, sign up for The Coconut Club's mailing list.

What is this place? Where am I? Who is this strange man asking us to spin a wheel? Why is there a piece of steak perched on the edge of my cocktail? Don't think about it too hard. Just put on your best island attire and show up to this tiki-inspired supper club, where the South Pacific comes to you.
