According to Martin Denny who played "Marty" the piano player in a bar in the Phillipines, all his shots were done inside Trader Vics Honolulu. There is about 5-7 minutes shot in the bar. I will need to dig out the movie to see if i can do some screen grabs. I remember seeing some fogcutter mugs on a shelf behind the bar




Ron,

I missed this post the first time around, that is an awesome movie poster with the Martin Denny signature. When did you hook up with Martin Denny?

Thanks for posting that and look forward to seeing those screen grabs from the movie.

Here is an old photo of the Ward Dr. Trader Vics from ebay.



You can make out a piece of the outrigger sign in the corner.

Some more images:






VERY slight variation on the one TabooDan already posted. Same address, different phone number!

Also, I have this one photo from the 80s showing the outside of TVics at the Intl Marketplace. Doesn't show much other than the sign (and the "parrot walk" nearby).

Aquarj,

Those are some great pictures of the Hawaii Trader Vic's. That add with the couple drinking out of the custom scorpion bowl is great. I really like those hanging coconut room dividers. Can you zoom in on the bowl, I can't figure out which one it is.

Here is another matchbook from the Ward Drive location featuring the anchor logo.

Sure DC, here's a closeup, in all its raw unmolested glory. OK, a teeny bit of molestation - I tried to sharpen the bowl a little.

I really like the typefaces Trader Vic's Honululu used, quite different than the U.S. chain's.

Yes, I like their lettering styles too, both the principal style and even the simple one on this little ad.



I like it because it kinda reminds me of the old cuban Bacardi lettering.

Randy,

Thanks for that blow up. I put that bowl on the Crypto mug thread as I have never seen one before.

Here is another ad from the Ward Drive Trader Vic's.

I found some photos of the Trader Vic's on Ward Drive in a Spenceclif Restaurant Guide that I picked up. This was right before Trader Vic's moved to the International Market Place. When TV moved to the IMP the Ward Drive restaurant became The Old Plantation for a period.

Here is the ad showing the bar and the outdoor patio dinning area.



Close up of the nice Tiki rendering.



The patio area.



The bar.



Here you can see the various custom mugs that were used only at the Trader Vic's in Hawaii.



More mugs and a Tiki behind the bar.



Here is a menu showing the different mug types from the Hawaii Trader Vic's.

Great zoom-in work, DC! That skull mug, wow! Those Tiki renderings were swiped from the Tahitian Lanai/Waikikian, art work by Stanley Stubenberg, I believe.

Bigbro,

Once again, nice memory bank on spotting the borrowed Tiki figures. Since they were both Spenceclif restaurants, I guess the owners felt it was OK to use a little art from one to the other.

Here is a comparison:

Tahitian Lanai


Trader Vic's


They gave the big Tiki on the left a little hair cut!
