The intro to my post is for all you SpongeBob fans out there:



“If nautical nonsense be somethin' ya wish.
Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish.”

I love the nautical/tiki cross-over theme.
Some of my favorites.

A few more postcards from the Tonga Room which has historically had a nautical theme.





Ship’s rigging from the Kona Kai at the Marriot in Philadelphia


Singapore Joes from the Kon Tiki Ports in Chicago


The great ship’s wheel at Skipper Kents in SF


Ports o Call in San Pedro


Postcard from the Hurricane Motor Lodge in
Check out the ship in the parking lot


The inside of the bar (poly pop) and restaurant (nautical)






Not sure this one counts but I had to put it in here
The Underwater Bar at the Jules Verne Room in Florida


The Beachcomber Bar in England




Some places from Hawaii.

Davey Jones Locker


Fisherman’s Wharf


The Schooner


That be all for now.

I love the pic's! Bars like this have so much character and make the general atmosphere of the place much livlier!

Recently, I was on a business trip near Stockton. I had some time to kill, so I went exploring through the Delta. This Nautical bar was among my finds.

Ya , that's it.
I can't believed they reopened it.
I thought it was gone. It looks great.

Bar opens at 8:00 AM. Welcome to the Delta!
I/we have to go for a grog!

Just found this place 26 miles from the Spindrift:
Has anybody been to the
Rusty Porthole ? (Place joke here.)
Last night they just had a "come as" Beach Blanket Bingo party.

I can't find any pics, but it looks like a possibly good nautical dive bar.

Looks like a Delta bar crawl is in order. Nice, balmy delta evening, a convertible with the top down, perfectly balanced tropical drinks, good friends, a recipe for a perfect night.

And Unga, I like how your dirty mind works, but here's the real story behind the name of the Rusty Porthole: While trying to decide on a name for this establishment, Captain John went to his favorite place of thought, Twin Island. Upon disembarking his boat, our hero stubbed his toe on a metal object. So curious was he that he set about digging out this object. Lo and behold he discovered it was a rusty porthole. After a discovery of such magnitude, it was easy to name the restaurant. The rusty porthole now hangs as a testimony for all to see.

That is it. The SpinDrift.The Gigantic ship's wheel that has the lantern's hanging from it is supposedly the spare wheel from the Titanic. They always make two of everything in case something breaks, and that is the spare,I was told. The beer was cold. Did'nt try the Mai Tai, but if it was anything like the greasy burger I was served, well, consider yourselves warned.

Not Tiki but *definitely* nautical. This place must have over 100 ship's wheels displayed throughout their many rooms. I also noticed many of their walls were made of wood hatches.
It has a great old-school feel, and the food we had was unexpectedly good (I read lots of negative reviews on the food). Their happy hour deals on food will get us back in there soon...

Here's some pics, some off the web and some I took last night...

Magical place
So how much Nautical is acceptable in a Tiki bar?
