22: Libations on the bar’s menu, from Painkillers to a treasure chest containing Veuve Clicquot and Jamaican rum.

Over 2,000: LED stars and fireworks illuminating the ceiling, which also imitates tropical storms.

2: Ideal number of humans on the giant clamshell love seat. Obviously.

6: Grapefruits lining a shelf in an ode to Hunter S. Thompson, whose very own pocketknife is also on display.

60+: Shrunken skulls depicting Wayne Newton, Nicolas Cage and other Vegas icons.

691: Words in “The Legend of the Golden Tiki,” a lurid prequel to the bar involving a merchantman named William Tobias Faulkner, a fabled destination called Skull Island and a madness-inducing golden idol.
