Would it be LA, home of the revered Tiki Ti, but with the granddaddy of them all, Trader Vic's, and with the addition of Purple Orchid, Lucky Tiki, and the 1950s orginial, the Tonga Hut - with Oceanic Arts and various A frame buildings scattered around?

Would it be SF, with the new Trader Vic's, the classic Tonga Room, and the Bamboo Hut and still more tiki just over the bridge in the East Bay, plus with water surrounding the environment?

Would it be South Florida, with the balmy weather, beautiful ocean and the very strong mana of the Mai Kai?

Chicago, too, has tiki, off the Lake.

Would it San Diego, also with both the Bali Hai and the tiki hotel, Humphrey's Half Moon Bay resort, on the Pacific, and Mr. Tiki's Mai Tai Lounge and Hanalei, with the poolside Moai?

My perception - Tiki was born in the tropics, the Mana stronger is stronger by the equator and off the Pacific - it has to be Honolulu, with the classic tiki at La Maranara, and the art gallery tiki bar & grill, Tiki's. Waikiki is graced by nightly tiki torch lightings, conch shell soundings and hula dancing. And then, the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore. Tiki paradise!
