Really nice work, Tim!

Well thought out and executed.

No worries on the TV, sometimes I wish I had one in the bar to watch surf videos and such... like you said, making more use of the room besides just drinking and entertaining.

Gonna put some money aside so I can get something small in there and do just that.

Love the sink too with the tile treatment! A sink is the other item I wish I had.

Your overall handling is much like the direction the last 2 Trader Vic's went with (Chicago and L.A.)

Classic tiki with a modern touch.

Enjoy your opening, you deserve it!

Lots of pics to post, but no time! It has rteally taken shape in the last week or so. Got your pieces up on the bar last night Lake. Now we also have to clean the house and get the yard ready, so, probably no pics until Monday...

I am pretty amazed myself and that says a lot. It is more than it's parts.

Collection display shelf getting near done.


Mai Kai section.


Moved in the real bar stuff!


Looking down the 11 foot bar. Near ready.


Used a drop cloth and tea-stained it for the front, with matts behind the masks. The black luan wll be replaced with carved trim and we still need to add the lights behind the masks.


Then we have volcano bowls with friends! Had about 25 people over this weekend.

Thanks for letting me be a part of the new Hideaway, Swanky!

The carvings look great on the front of the bar you've created!

Enjoy!

That's an impressive paint job you did on Becky. I like the subtle shades you used on the skin tone and the detail of the face.

I really like the mugs and how you displayed them. I will have to post my collection soon. That bar came together fast. I got to put more time in my bar very soon. And certainly buy some bamboo soon

Swanky,

Great looking bar, glad you got the Hapa Haole Hideaway back up and running again.

Awesome displays from Trader Vics, Mai Kai and Aku Aku.
