The Lope: The Bikini Lounge

The Bikini Lounge

My last stop on Hwy60 Sunday was the Bikini Lounge on Van Buren in Phoenix. Last year this area was sleazier, but in the interum, small art galleries have popped up and the area is improving.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Bikini's two tikis were of recent vintage. The place uses black lights and flourescent paint accents on the walls.

I know ATMs are convenient for owners and customers but I'm not crazy about this juxtiposition.

I'm told the wahini in this old painting was originally nude and the skirt was added by later owners. Next year, when I have more time, I'll try to discover the whole story.
