Swanky,

I was going to post this one as a follow-up to the drink girls, but you beat me to the "punch".

Here are some more leading men behind the bar.

The Bartender at the Polynesian Bar in the Somerset Hotel, Boston Mass.



The bartender at Dug's West Indies in Reno, Nevada




A different 70's take on the Mai Kai Flaming Coffee Grog


And of course Stanley the Entertainer at Tahitian Bar, Castaways Resort, Miami Beach

Oh, and one more from the Kahiki that was on an earlier post for the Kahiki Catalog.

Tiki mugs and Sandro Conti the bar manager.

Boy that lonely bunch of bananas looks sad hanging off that one bamboo pole at the Somerset Hotel's Polynesian Bar (compared to Don the Beachcomber's or Kelbo's banana bunches). And a Tiki merely PAINTED on a column? That postcard is great, for it qualifies for the most low budget Tiki Bar decor ever! :



It looks like a classic 40s Boston dark wood bar was dressed up Polynesian style presto! to catch up with the trend.

Haole'akamai,

I don't know who TofuJoe is, but I think there should be a Dug's Bartender Look-A-like contest at Hukilau and/or Tiki Oasis this year. Winner gets a free mug!



Bigbro,

The weird thing about that understated Polynesian Bar in Boston is that it says it is connected to Skipper Kent. See the back of the card.

Bora Boris,

Thank you for the introduction. All TofuJoe needs is a Blue Hawaiian shirt and some thick-frame glasses and we have the first winner of the Dug's Bartender Look-A-Like contest!

How's this?


Ha! I just noticed both photos have bottles of Senior Curacao of Curacao on the shelves in the background!

Yet another sign of that place trying to jump on the Polynesian train: The Hotel, not being part of a rich chain, couldn't get Don or Vic's franchise, so they they went down the list to the next guy! All the hotels at the time tried to follow the success of the Hilton, Sheraton and Marriot Tiki concepts.

...but the real Dug surely will beat anyone with the sheer amount of themed liquor bottles on his back bar shelves. Now there is a whole dark chapter of bad taste collectables! Themed liquor decanters!

And how about these fine servers from the Zombie Hut (courtesy of Mimi's web site)




I think that's Dug's younger brother on the left in the green shirt. Or is that TofuJoe?
