This is our backyard retreat and home bar.
I spent the first 14 years of my life in Minneapolis
and the Waikiki Room was my favorite restaurant!
I would hound my parents to take me there.
Going out to dinner back then was a very rare occasion and a big event.
On my birthday we would go as a whole family, uncle, aunt, grandparents, etc...
I would always get the pressed duck, yum and a drink with an umbrella.
Fun memories and the inspiration for name: The "Waikiki Womb"
























































This is the small VIP bar The "'Ona'Alu'Alu" within the "Womb"

Its build out can be seen here:

Really, really cool!

Great artwork on the deck.

Love those album frames, were those homemade?

Great photos Murph!
We have had the pleasure of frequenting this oasis in
the Glendale foothills and must say it transports you to
tiki heaven!

Wow! I've seen a few shots of this bar, but many of these are new to me... Loads of details throughout. Like many have said- "it's never really finished"; looks like once you've tikified one area, it's on to the next! I especially like the little private booth, but everything is cool.

That is gorgeous. I love the moody night time pictures and the giant cocktail umbrellas.

There is just so much to love about your place. Way too much to list
Great, great, great job.
When did you start putting it all together?

I have had the pleasure to have been invited to Murphs place and I gotta say
it's " incredible".The cool thing is this a converted guest house located on a
lower level of the house.

Outstanding! Check your local zoning ordinances. You could probably turn that into a commercial enterprise. Its that good.
