The Lowbrow Luau is in Limbo

Mahalo, tiki friends.

The Lowbrow Luau is in limbo.

Our host hotel, the Golden Sails in Long Beach, will not re-open to its full capacity in 2021.

No chef, no entertainment, no staff, no way to put on the show that we had envisioned for you.

Then there is that pesky resurgence.

The whole tiki community was looking forward to this 3-day weekender.

Our committee ohana is determined to treat you to a most unique show.

We have toured a dozen locations looking for a viable location, but none meet our needs quite like Golden Sails - pools, exhibit space, entertainment, outdoor activity areas - and some very cool rooms overlooking the luau lawn and pool.

So - disappointing as it is, we will put the Lowbrow Luau in limbo for now.

We have all your information on file, so you will be the first to know whenever we set a new date.

Meanwhile, we look forward to the end of September when a brand new tiki restaurant opens in Long Beach.

The 100-seat beauty is designed by Bamboo Ben. It has a full menu and a stage for music - and you will be the first to know when the Grand Opening occurs.

Meantime, the name and location of the tiki Island speakeasy will remain a Secret.

Stellar Shows will be presenting a number of special cabaret concerts during an extended grand opening weekend. Stay tuned.

Aloha for now…

From March 31:

You can imagine how disappointed we are, as well as our hardworking committees, many of whom worked with us on the Escape to Tiki Island shows and at Don the Beachcomber.

We waited as long as we could, and simply must adjust our schedule again.
If you have already reserved rooms and wristbands through us, be assured we will maintain that list indefinitely., and will post you on any changes as we move forward.
We thank you for your enthusiasm and support!

Any questions, please call 714-809-6146.
