Following Tropical Isle’s® Hand Grenade Drink success at the New Orleans Worlds Fair in 1984, we sought to bring this new and exciting drink to the French Quarter. Our hands on personal approach to the nightclub experience is a concept by which this business has thrived. We have allowed Tropical Isle® to grow at its own pace, sometimes slowly, sometimes with leaps and bounds, which exceeded our dreams.
Probably the greatest leap came when we introduced our magical, melon flavored blend of liqueurs and secret ingredients, the Hand Grenade® Drink, which we believed could compete valiantly with the Hurricane, New Orleans’ signature alcoholic offering at that time. The Hand Grenade® has become the hands down favorite of over hundreds of thousands of people the entire world over.
Tropical Isle® Nor The Hand Grenade® Drink Wouldn’t Be Great Without Our Employees
No telling of our history would be complete without mentioning our employee-management philosophy. We have paid the closest attention to the personality and ability of each and every person we have chosen to work with us. Many have been a part of this association from its beginning. We have tried to balance an extremely demanding standard with a real family-like attitude of appreciation and that has served us well.
From its inception, at our Tropical Isles® and our other establishments, we have tried to bring a combination of service that is second to none, the most enjoyable entertainment, and the quality and a special kind of fun with the Hand Grenade Drink®and our other signature drinks.So, this is the Hand Grenade® Story – an idea, a plan, and a determination.
We look back with awe, pride and fond memories. We look forward with great expectation and anticipation, ready for the challenges and secure in the knowledge that we are doing our best for the French Quarter we all love so dearly.
