Chin Tiki in Detroit: An Update

Filed under: Detroit,Events,News,Tiki — Humuhumu @ 6:55 pm

James Teitelbaum has an update on the Chin Tiki:

Marvin and his son Marlon would like to reopen Chin Tiki’s upstairs floor for private events, and possibly as a full time night club. If that goes well, they would like to reopen the (more severely wrecked) downstairs at some point as well. They would like to have the upstairs space ready in time for the Superbowl in January, 2006, which is being held in Detroit. The stadium is walking distance from Chin Tiki. They have a lot of hurdles to overcome, such as plumming problems, water damage, and others.

Also, Feelin’ Zombified and mattfink both have pictures from the tour of the Chin Tiki during the Motor City Tiki Art Show.
