Some purely Nautical establishments from 1968 that might give you some good ideas for tiki room decor:

The Nantucket Cove, Chicago




The Windjammer, Cincinnati OH


The San Salvador, in the San Diego International Airport




Castagnola's Lobster House, Santa Barbara CA

A classic! I think there's a great menu in the Jim Heimann Menu Cover book.

I just remembered another ship's prow place that hasn't found its way here yet: Del Webb's Ocean House at the Mission Bay Inn in San Diego. Can someone post pics?

Sabu,

Nice posts. Are those from a 1968 restaurant guide? The Castagnola's Lobster House was the first restaurant I ever went to in Santa Barbara when I came down to check the place out for college. It is now a Rusty's Pizza Parlor. The light house tower is still there, but nothing else.

Bigbro,

Here are some shots of Del Webb's Ocean House with the ship design in the front of the building from a brochure I have.

This bar and restaurant is at the marina in Cape May, New Jersey. I don't recall the name, but it was the last bar we stopped at before heading home on the ferry and wished we had found it earlier in the day so we could have had lunch. Not tiki, but it had that great nautical vibe.






We were here in late December and it was cold, so the boat bar was empty.
Great idea though. I would like to sit at a bar like this with an icey-cold Mai Tai.

Picked this up today from a local Craig's list. I can't fit it in the current edition of the Honolulu Lounge... but I'm sure I will find a use for it somewhere. 60" x 30" Liberty Ship hatch cover with brass trim and handles, coated in resin.

I was too late to grab the smaller table below, but the photo gives you a view of what the top of the longer cover I bought looks like.

The Ship Restaurant and Tavern in Bonita Springs Florida. This great old building has seen many changes over the years. It's last incarnation was as the Landmark Bingo Hall. My sister remembers going to dinner there years back and said it was a great place. Empty now but still there and up for sale for the small price of $4.25 million. It looked allot better in its original state but has been depirated.

Image from Cardcow's site.

I think there's a TiPSY vs NiPSY factor that says you're either a Tiki or Nautical bar, but of course a little of either are welcome in both.

Keeping my fins crossed to see some great old Wreck Bar adverts, postcards or pictures~

We ate there in 2002 when we lived in Bonita Springs. Staff was unfriendly and stuck us up front in steerage since we weren't dressed to their satisfaction. Food was OK. We didn't get to see the entire restaurant, but what I saw I liked. I wish I could find pictures of the interior.

I found this mug from Moultrays Four Winds Pirate Restaurant with nice crude graphics that will soon be filled with rum







and the bottom even has a compass on it.

Naugatiki,

Nice mug. I saw this matchbook from Moultray's.







Interesting that they had a New Orleans influence with the Mardi Gras and New Orleans Rooms.


I always wondered if this place was related to the Moultray's Polynesian restaurant at the 1964 World's Fair in New York.
