Humuhumu’s description

Dobbs House Luau was a chain of Polynesian restaurants throughout the south. This location opened in January 1960 in the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Lexington, Kentucky. Unlike other Dobbs House Luau locations, this one was sometimes advertised as the "Luau Room" or simply "Luau," only sometimes being referred to as "Dobbs House Luau." Later that same year, the hotel closed and became office space, it's not clear if or how long the restaurant remained after the hotel closure. The building still stands, around 1980 the building was purchased by the city to house government offices.
