Great discoveries. LOVE the label!

That rum makes sense, especially since the Mai-Kai partnered with Don Q. But who knew?!

Here are some nice interior shots from September of 1968. Enjoy.
Sorry for jamming up the thread with some wrongly ID'ed photos and thanks for every ones help. I have contact the Ohio Historical website to let them know of the mistake in the identification of the photos. I have Moved the Photos Here. Thanks.

Nice pictures!!
But I think they may be from Don the Beachcombers
not the Kahiki.
I say this because of the green table lamps.
Plus there are OA polls in that shot.
The Kahiki polls were kind of mexican looking.
Cuz they got em in Mexico.

Now we got a mystery. These are from the Ohio Historical Society. Here is the description for the photos.

"Five photographs, taken in September 1968, show the interior of the Kahiki Supper Club in Columbus, Ohio. Lee Henry and Bill Sapp opened the Polynesian-style restaurant in 1961. Visitors to the Kahiki, shaped like a Polynesian long house, entered through two large Easter Island figures. Inside the restaurant, diners were seated in grass huts around a large tiki figurine or in the "rain forest" that included a simulated thunder storm. Although listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the restaurant closed in August 2000 and was demolished soon after. The slides measure 2" x 2" (5.08 x 5.08 cm)."

You maybe on to something Skip. Here is a close up of pic #1 and those look like DTB shakers to me.

This is definitely not the Kahiki. We know that because of the wood carvings, the table top light, the chair and booths, and the shakers are all wrong. Our guess is the Lanai or maybe they could also be a Steve Crane Luau.

Tiki-Kate has the table top light and maybe she could shed some light as to where it came from.

OK. Lets see if this link work to go directly to where I found the photos.
http://omp.ohiolink.edu/OMP/NewDetails?oid=3670031&fieldname=xml&results=10&sort=title&searchstatus=1&hits=1&searchmark=0&searchstring=tiki&searchtype=kw&format=list&count=1
I will post this in locating Tiki also. To see if anyone else has an ID. The link has been corrected and now is the Kon Tiki page. Thanks everyone for your help.
