My post of the Leilani Village postcard last week:


...got me thinking: Why don't a do a whole thread on just artist's renderings of tiki bars from postcards, menus, ads, etc. They're definitely harder to come by than photographic images, but I enjoy them so much more. Everything is so idealized and streamlined and exotic in a way only the artists imagination can capture.

So without further ado, here are some favorite artist's renderings from my collection - otherwise known as "eye-candy"

The Famous Mai Kai postcard:

The Mai Kai's Molokai Lounge:

Another more uncommon image of the Mai Kai:

The Aku Aku Motel, Woodland Hills, CA:

The Aku Aku, Las Vegas:

The Tradewinds - Oxnard, CA:

The Hawaiian Village Motel - Myrtle Beach, SC:

Christian's Hut (with the original Goof) - Balboa, CA:

Disneyland, entrance to Adventureland:

The Waikiki Motel - Anaheim, CA

The Original Trader Vic's - Oakland, CA

Trader Vic's - San Francisco:

Trader Vic's - Beverly Hills, CA:

Don The Beachcomber - Hollywood, CA:

South Sea Island - Pacific Ocean Park:

The Royal Hawaiian - Daytona Beach, FL:

The Willows - Honolulu, HI:

And The Famous Waikikian - Waikiki, HI:

Hope you had as much fun looking at them as I've had collecting them.
