Welcome, praguelodyte, and welcome to Tiki Central! Thanks for the info on your friend's tiki bar in Prague -- it's always a thrill to hear of tiki bars springing up in far-flung locales. I've added their bar to Critiki: Taky Tiki, Praha. If you can, please add your friend's bar in our Locating Tiki section, and tell us all about it!

Thanks for your warm welcome, humu!

Also tx for adding Taky Tiki to Critiki. I have a bit of a problem uploading images to that site. It's not technical, just can't answer 'yes' to all the upload questions! .

As a photographer I have 100s of images of Taky Tiki that I shot myself. Most of them have people in them, usually some recognizable. How do we get by this one? A waiver/release? I always get people in my shots, cuz, yknow, an empty bar is not very fun

Most of the images I shot are on dvd back in Prague, so let me know in the next few weeks if you have time, how + what I can upload. I'll be happy to upload once I'm back in Prague.

Thanks again...................... praguelodyte (Taky Tiki tropical barfly)

Hey Tikitim, I saw your request for a tiki fountain. We just purchased from costco.com a tiki waterfall pond kit, complete with 1800 pounds of real stones, and everything you need to make a waterfall. I know a waterfall is not a fountain and I'm not sure what size you are looking for, but check it out online. You can only purchase it online, it was $799 plus tax, no delivery or shipping charges! It was delivered on a palet! Can't wait to get started on it this spring.

Hey to Gigantalope & Tikicleen! We'll have you over soon. (I figured I needed my own identity from our Tiki twosome...)

We live in Rancho Cordova (Sac) and love seeing all the tiki interest. Tikitim, I love your decorating. We have a tiki bar in a spare bedroom, it's great, hubby collects mugs, I'll post photos later. Tiki is taking over the house, it's great!! I'm getting some great ideas here, so thanks!

I do miss the Hukilau, it seems right when they were really getting it right, it dissapeared, very dissapointing.

I did check out Delios in Rocklin (or Roseville), very non descript. The food was good, it's not got much atmosphere, but that's when it was first opened.

Yes, we definately need more tiki in Sacramento, I encourage anyone to open a place here, and see the tikiphiles come out of the woodwork. Please!!!

...Does anyone have any low priced and cool tiki stuff for our little Prague bar? We just can't get tiki stuff in Czech and I'm here sort of collecting odds and ends for the bar. We don't have much of a budget, don't need anything super vintage or collectible, just some tiki/tropical things to help our little low budget Prague bar look just a bit cooler. It could be anything like mugs, prints, bamboo/wood stuff, etc. Nothing vintage or expensive, just something reproduction or knock off would do. As you can see by the myspace site, the bar is small and cool but needs a bit more tikiness to really beat those bongos



I think we should start a new thread here on TC to support Prague Tiki by directly sending Tiki care packages to the TAKY TIKI !
(I guess the ALOHA WAVE LOUNGE that used BOT photos for their menu was not really a Tiki Bar, as I suspected..)

GROOOOOVY! I love the TIKI CARE PACKAGE idea! I feel like a TIKIVANGELIST all of a sudden...asking for donations to our little church of tiki in Prague!

OMG...you are messing with MY MIND here! I have always wanted to own some nice little tropical bar that plays Polynesian music and serves fabulous umbrella drinks. I can't believe there are so many people in the Sac area that are into this culture. I have collected cocktail recipe books and bar menus for a long time, so maybe finding this forum will help me make my dream come true in the near future. Hmmmmm...thinking about a business loan right now. :0




Hey VampiressRN, you be messin' with my mind. I have been on and off working with a plan to start a "Polynesian Place," of my own, here in Sacramento. A few years ago, I was asked, by Lyon's Corporation, to do a proposal for the now closed Lyon's Restaurant on Watt and El Camino. Inside was a small room, that was closed to the public. It would have made a great tiki bar. I planned to bring back the Terasso floor, inside the main dining room. (There is carpet on it now). It was a beautiful aquamarine color. I heard Walmart might be moving in and using it as office/reception area. But who knows? Now that Lyon's is out of the picture, I want to pursue this plan.

Hukilau.....I wish I had gotten over there before it changed. It is still same owner. He felt he wasn't getting enough business with that format. I know it had food but I don't think he ever used ''Tiki Bar'' in any of his ads. ''Tiki Drinks'' gets my attention better than ''Sunday Brunch''. He also owns Jack's urban eats and Paesano's pizza. Maybe we'll get another tiki bar soon.


I was looking for a phone number and came across this ad. I kept it for the address. I'm sorry I never made it there.

OMG...is that the building that is on the corner with the roof slanted just right and the rock on the outside? I can't believe you said that Spaceu....every time I drive by there I think....damn....that place would make a great tiki bar. It is all fenced off right now...I bet it gets bulldozed down. Check it out and let me know what the scoop is. Maybe some of us could float a business loan and pull it off.

My lips are sealed....mums the word....I can see it now with tikis in the front with alternating colored spot lights and bamboo fountains with fog machines and tons of green fauna and palm trees. Keep me posted on this top-secret project.

Vamp..., I am currently looking at 3 other properties in the Sacramento area.
There is much to consider. Location, price, parking, etc.

Well, I got done with work early, so I went to Luau Gardens for lunch. (I needed a pseudo tiki fix). I then looked around town for possibilities for new tiki restaurants and hotels. I found some potential sites. I even found a Bowling Alley that could be turned into an Atomic Style bowling alley. It has a bar inside that would lend itself nicely to a tiki bar. That's all for now.

I hope that anyone even remotely close to Sacramento is not thinking about doing anything else on Saturday March 10th but attending Vamp's Tiki Party between 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. in Rocklin CA! (see CA events forum)!

See ya there!

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and I'm going to the party)!

Tis sad but true: tonight I walked by that corner Watt/El Camino site just down the road from where I grew up. It is 60% demolished: gaping holes in the roof, the back half nearly gone, and a hungry bulldozer parked next to it. By the end of the week it will be a blank corner. Those demolition crews work fast.

I really wish that place would've become a tiki joint. It was suitable in shape and surrounded by palm trees. And we need a tiki joint here in Sac. No, REALLY. San Francisco has just a buttload of tiki places...at least 8 or 9. Sacramento: BIG GOOSE EGG. Even MODESTO has Minnie's (VERY tikified).
