not all those who wander are lost

Chin Tiki – now owned by property baron Michael Ilitch. I believe the owner recently passed away, and now it is up for sale by the Ilitch group. For restaurant/nightclub/banquet use.

The Chin Tiki was part of the Tahitian club boom back in the Ricky Richardo days – much like Trader Vics which was part of Hotel Statler on the Bagley side.

Recently this long vacant club was featured in Eminems “8Mile” movie.

One Response to Chin Tiki

  • Last I heard the family of Marvin Chin was looking to sell.

    I don’t believe it is in Ilitches hands yet though, because they promised Tiki fans that the club would be open for tour at Motor City Tiki.
