And it shall be called the Lupa Lela Lounge

lupa lela: (literal translation)
Forget tired

an homage to the lupa lela club in Tembagapura (Irian Jaya, Indonesia) where I spent many a day playing pool while my parent's lived there.

Great thread! So many inspiring pics!

Still "working" on my basement bar. My latest name is "Akua 'o Lama".

We have a Poly-themed dining room (unnamed) with a home bar made from parts of a real sugarcane mill as well as an inherited mid-century Polynesian styled dining room suit.

Here's a cool link:

Ours has a very original name... we call it the Tiki Bar. We are working on a better name but so far, nothing has been jumping out at us.

The home Tiki Bar has been demolished and its contents now live in many cardboard boxes. The space was too small for us (10x12') and the house is being remodeled so I thought it would be a good time to expand the Tiki Bar. My wife is getting her new living room so I get my new Tiki Bar room 24'x30'. Pictures will follow as soon as there is something to take a picture of.

I just finished the book Aku Aku which I totally liked. The librarian said, "Oh, thats a good one". I will go with the name the Orongo Room as my bar's name. Now I got the Orongo Munktiki mug to go with. I will post the mascot shortly.

My birthday is fast approaching and I got a sneak peak of one the new, one of a kind mugs, made by my parents. Wow are they awesome. They can't buy them in store where I live so they made them. Now my bar will house some of the best.

I have started construction in my basement tiki bar. I have been working on it whenever I get a little extra time which is rare. The work is slow but it is going well. I have been working on a fake lava rock fountain with waterfall in the corner of the room. Right now, the name I am calling my bar is "The Kava Lava Lounge". Not sure if it will stick or not.

Mine is called "Kanna WishMa Wife waleme Makone" Well maybe 10 years down the road when the basement turns from kiddie playland to the adult playground.

My as of yet unborn bar is referred to as "The Kanaloa Lounge"

Here's some sketches of it:

My living room is what I call Pan Tropical with stuff from Africa, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, The Phillipines, Mexico and Brazil (or at least inspired by them) The rest (kitchen, bathroom, dinette, bedroom, and patio) is decorated with stuff I brought back from living in Hawaii or have collected since moving back to CA, some new, some vintage. So I named my whole apartment Miki Place after the street I used to live on in Kaneohe. And as I just posted elswhere, I have named our old apartment pool area (pool was filled in with dirt two years ago by managment and converted into a huge planter that I, as landscape manager, have filled with palms, bananas, bird of paradise, ect.) The Tiki Garden. Not very original, but I think anything more obscure would be lost on our residents.

"The Loma Loma Lounge"

Why? Seemed fitting since we moved to Point Loma (San Diego), home of the Bali Hai.

Currently my tiki space is called "the top shelf", and consists of the top shelf of my desk. I am still studying at home, so space (and money) is not something I have a lot of.

When I get my own house, the tiki space will be "Hewey's Tiki Bar" or "Hewey's Tiki Lounge", depending upon the set up. Nice and creative isn't it? I like the way is sounds though.
