SNL tonight (3/9) actor sitting at vintage bamboo bar ,shelf in background with 6-8 mugs,2-3 tikis , a “working hula girl
‘lamp, a tiki mask behind the lamp, and a smattering of MCM furniture including the area rug. Cool cuz the skit was followed by the DW tiki commercial. Gonna have that Mai Tai after all. the name of the skit was "what are even doing?” Approx 31 minutes into the show.

Check it out.
Cheers

I was watching The Kids In The Hall season one (1989) last night and I saw what appeared to be a large Tiki on the roof of The Copa (a Toronto dance club of the 80s). I wasn't even sure I'd really seen it until I backed up the dvd and looked at the scene again, but sure enough, it looks like a large gold tiki statue.



I looked online to see if there were any photos, and all I found was this:



You can see it on the roof in the upper right hand corner.

According to
the article, the owners also owned The Ports of Call, so maybe there's a connection there. The article says The Copa closed in 91 or 92. Today the site is a condo building.

Do any Toronto TCers remember this?

One of my favorites was the episode of Tiny Toons called "Kon Ducki" Kinda poked a little fun at the Kon Tiki voyage. If you haven't checked it out, it is a good laugh.

Route 66 Season 3
Episode called
Poor Little Kangaroo Rat (1962)
Episode filmed at Marineland of the Pacific and Palos Verdes Estates, California
featuring Leslie Nielsen in a dramatic role (wow,this is an old show)

Tiki Bar scene.





But don't know if it's filmed on location at an actual bar or just a sound stage.

Lou. Lou has a tiki bar in his office on Mad Men. No one deserves a tiki bar in his office less than Lou.

A few more scenes of the Tiki Motel. This one had a few Tiki mugs.




The wallpaper and rattan chairs.

SNL, Season 5, Episode 20 (1979-1980). Bill Murray as lounge-singer Nick "Lava" performing at "Trader Nick's" - a tiki bar decorated with Orchids of Hawaii masks and tiki mugs. Very tiki-savvy for the time, name-dropping cocktails like the Missionary's Downfall, Mai-Tai, Navy Grog and Fogcutter.

Here's a link to a youtube clip of the skit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peulXm2c0Mg

And here's a transcript (though they get some of the dialogue wrong where he sings about the drinks):
http://snltranscripts.jt.org/79/79tnick.phtml

Anyone have this season on DVD, so we could see a few screen-grabs?
