Tell us more about Overdose! When did you open and what’s changed since then?
I opened Overdose Nov 30th, 1990. At this time I was selling vinyl records. The name was Vinyl Overdose. In 2003 I renamed it Overdose Unlimited, I added clothing, accessories, chili sauces, etc. and a tiny tiki bar…In 2013 Deborah and I became business partners, we stopped selling vinyls and we made the tiki bar much bigger, and we named it Dan’ton-Ku Tiki bar.

What did you do before Overdose ?
I Worked in the watches industry (of course…) and Deborah was running a famous bar in Bienne named Underground or UG. Endless nights, gallons of cheap alcohol, and loud music. I was a dj there for many years….

Talking with the customers, showing our beloved items to sale, including sourpuss, of course… And drinking some cocktails 🙂
