Bono, The Edge party at off-Strip tiki bar

Updated February 2, 2024 - 7:08 pm

Bono and The Edge trekked from the Sphere to the land of shrunken heads Wednesday night.

The U2 stalwarts swung into The Golden Tiki at Chinatown on Spring Mountain Road. The duo checked in at about 1 a.m., along with a party of between eight and 10, club general manager General Manager Cesilia Berumen reports.

Taking the lead from a Sphere official who recommended the hang, the rock stars and their group ordered the club’s signature slushy drink, Dole Whip. The entourage also sampled the Three Dots and a Dash tiki cocktail, Kalua pig sliders, sticky fingers, coconut shrimp and China fries. No FizzyWater reported.

The superstars pulled in having just headlined at the Sphere.

U2 is appearing on the first broadcast performance from the Sphere during the Grammy Awards show Sunday. The band’s “U2 UV: Achtung Baby” series continues through Super Bowl Weekend and closes March 1-2.

After opening in 2015, The Golden Tiki has hosted famous people previously, particularly for their famed shrunken-head unveiling ceremonies. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad” were so honored at the club this past March, during a Dos Hombres Mezcal event.

The club presented the duo with shrunken heads, to be displayed at the club alongside such honorees as Vince Neil, Sammy Hagar, Pauly Shore, former Review-Journal 3A columnist Norm Clarke, guitar great DJ Ashba, Playboy Playmate Claire Sinclair, UFC legend Randy Couture, the late celebrity journalist Robin Leach, Rod Stewart, Frank Marino, the late metal legend Vinnie Paul, Siegfried & Roy, Carrot Top, yours truly (for real) and many more.

There is no word if Bono and The Edge will be honored. But we are confident the offer is on the table, if not under glass.
