Here's some pictures I took at Harpoon Harry's in Huntington Beach in 2003:

(They're kinda dark, so I won't bother posting them here individually)

And of course there's the Warehouse in Marina del Rey. I don't think I've ever taken any really good pictures of the place... it's worth going to check out yourself, anyhow.

Sven -
In Atlanta, you say you visited the place?
Hmmm... perhaps The Yacht Club, in Little Five Points?
I never thought of it as "nautical tiki," but I vaguely recollect some nautical stuff. Kind of avoided the place myself.

Port of Call (Port o' Call?) in New Orleans would definitely be a hit for this thread. Very very port-ish, lotsa bamboo, and a couple of lame tikis. On the edge of The Quarter.
*Best* burgers in the city.

There's a pirate themed bar in Pirate's Alley in NOLA too (right off Jackson Square). Lots of rigging (for frigging, if you're so inclined), fishnets, etc. Can't recall the name.

Here are a couple of pix from the Castaways Inn & Suites in Manitou Springs, Colorado which is where I stay when visiting family there. It is very nautical, with some tiki.

Hard to tell from these small photos, but this place has lots of nautical stuff. Appears to have been decorated in the early '70s and never touched.

I'll have to snap a few shots.. but there is a seafood joint down the road from my house that was torn down and rebuilt like the top of a lighthouse.. pretty nifty. My Grandmother worked there in the 70's and 80's making the salads.

I found a table with 4 swivel barrel chairs at a local antique store.. was thinking about buying them for my basement tiki bar.. I think this thread has convinced me.

Then there's the Kowloon here in MA. It's the closest we have to a real Tiki joint, and there's a boat in the middle of the main dining area. I'd put up pix, but my hard drive died last week, just got a new one. All was lost. But back to the NauTiki theme. I'll put up some pix when I find them again. Nautica and Tiki go together like Rum & juices, like ice and ceramic mugs. It's an allegory to our perspective on Tiki. Our forefathers who explored those areas were nautical types; how else would they get there, and how else would the rum get there?

I just read this. The place in Atlanta is Dante's Down the Hatch. It doesn't get much more nautical than that! A ship right in the restaurant! My idea was to make my bar like the prow of a ship and everyone sits around the outside... Flash site. Can't post images.

Nothing that a blowtorch couldn't fix. Or maybe a few wild parties to age it a few years?! Yeah, that place is pretty over the top. With the lights way down low and some creaking ship and crashing wave sounds piped in along with some faux rainstorms, it could be quite cool. Might have to pay that place a visit next time I'm in town. Thanks for the tip Swanky.

It was a consideration for Hukilau 2002, but, when Trader Vic's is right there... And it is in Buckhead.
