Ignacio Gonzalez (aka Notch) of Top Notch Kustoms created Raku Bar, a one-of-a-kind 18-foot-tall bar in the shape of a tiki. The 600-lb. Raku Bar was created in 2011 and debuted at Tiki Oasis that year. Its bigger brother Ku Bar lives at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda, California. If you’d like to own Raku, the bar has recently been listed for sale by Notch on Ebay.
2 people can comfortably be in it at the same time although we have stuffed 6 people in it.lol. It has a nice large removable bar top and a table top to mix drinks or use any way you like. It also has lighting in the eyes with 2 built in fans to blow the smoke out of the eyes…Looks great at night! You can easily connect a smoke machine (not included) to it to make the smoke come out of its eyes for a great show,(we did this at Tiki Oasis 2011 and it looked Awesome!) Ready for you to add some of your own touches like maybe a sound system or even connect a microphone and make Raku speak.
