Ours will be "The Rincon Room" due to the proximity of that surfing area and we like the name.....TikiTony did the fine artwork and Gecko is working on the sign.....


That is a good looking design! Nice work T-Tony. Gecko, keep us posted on the progress. Finished pics always appreciated. I am sure everybody wants to see the final results!

Ours is called the West Long Lounge, which is a play on the name of our town, West Long Branch. It doesn’t mean anything – I just like the alliteration. The bar area’s not exclusively tiki, but mostly is & is becoming more so little by little. These pics are kinda old. The bar area now has more furniture, tiki stuff, & a bit more artwork, but I think you'll get the idea. Anyway, here are some pics:



The bar is not really tiki. It’s in the center of the house,which along w/ the bar was made in 1970. The front of the bar is made from an old Mahogany door that was carved in Puerto Rico.





The countertops are yellow Formica.





Here’s the view from the breezeway:



Standing at the bar, you see our fireplace, which I think looks like a giant tiki.

Tiki Chris, thanks for the photos, it's always fun to have a peek at other Tiki rooms in progress.

In the first photo, that item with the little faces stacked on on top of the other, do you know what it is? Is it new or vintage? I've never seen anything quite like it.

I'll give this a shot. My husband and I just built this bar a week ago and added the shelves over the windows this past weekend. Our main bar, in the living room, was the original Velveteen Lounge, but our whole house has become the Velveteen Lounge, so I guess the tiki room (which is our enclosed porch) will be the VL Tiki Annex. We've only just started, but we're having so much fun building our tiki space, especially after years of living in tiny, cramped city apartments. I hope I'm doing this correctly on the coding.

The only thing about having a space this big is it really peeves me when we get out the good silver and our guests don't show up...
Also, it's a bitch to vacum this mutha.
