June 10th-16th 2024

Welcome to Dallas!

Bamboo Ben and Son!

If you have been into a Tiki Bar lately, you have more than likely seen the work of, “Bamboo Ben” Bassham. This tropical interior guru continues the tradition of his grandfather, Eli Hedley, an Oklahoma native who moved west to California and made huts and houses out of found materials along the beach. This upbringing shaped Ben's understanding for creating tropical spaces and fueled a passion for escapism through design which everyone experiences when stepping into one of his thoroughly decorated spaces. As a fourth generation now continues the tradition, his son joins him in this design endeavor, bringing people delight with his creativity and knowledge. Texas has it's own stamp of Bamboo Ben and Son at Hugman's Oasis in San Antonio!

We welcome Bamboo Ben and Son to Dallas Tiki Week!
