JD,

Thank you for your research, as depressing as it is.

sure thing.

i did not include the pacific restautant in sterling, virginia, as that seemed too far from dc and kind of borderline tiki. but it was a great place nonetheless while it lasted.

This place closed a long time ago. After it closed it became a Chinese restaurant where I have eaten a few times, last time being about 5 years ago. It is not visible from the street, but I drive right past that place several times a week, so I can stop by and check it out to see what's up.

Johnny Dollar,

I have two souvenir photo folders from some Pre-Tiki places is Washington DC.

The first is from the Trade Winds located on 13th Street.



The second is from Club Klavako.



Here is another one from Club Klavako that uses the imagery from the Monte Proser Beachcomber chain.




This place was apparently a pretty big jazz club at one time.

DC

Johnny Dollar,

Here are a few other Washington DC metro area Tiki places over in Alexandria, Virginia that weren't on your list.

Chick & Toshiko Lee's Pacific Inn





Clearly a borrow from Steven Crane's Luau Tiki.




And the Tahitian Hut, which is a bit newer.




DC

I'm a recent transplant to the east coast, been here for about six months and now that I'm pretty confident the snow's not coming back (hey, I'm from California), I'm going to venture out and see what I can find. Thanks to everyone for posting their findings! I'm going to try and make it to Solomons tonight if I can convince my partner to go with me.

What did you think?

The Solomons Tiki Bar has pretty good decor and you can buy some nice mugs there. A good enough place to drink, but its not quite real Tiki. Still, a fun place to hit after a crab cake or two.

It was a no-go. =( My partner had too much to do Friday night, so we ended up not doing a whole lot. I'm hoping that we'll be able to do it this weekend instead. In the meantime, I'm trying to reassemble a passable stock of rums so I can at least make mai tais at home. Any idea where I can get the good Senor's Curacao?

i don't live down that way, but in my experience both D.C. and Montgomery County liquor stores have pretty decent stock. some MoCo residents might chime in with actual stores to look for the senior curacao. i know i've seen it in their home bars

I found a couple of leads for getting both Rhum St. James and Senior's Curacao, liquor stores up by the Delaware state line. I'm on my way to Pennsylvania next week, so I was going to stop by and see what I could find. =) I'll let everyone know.
