Mannix season 5 (1971): no tiki. A few of those "California wharfside" type bars, the kind of places that you would expect to visit on a JOHN-O tour:





Mannix season 6 (1972):



According to the storyline this place was in Malibu, but it could have been anywhere. And those likely-made-in-Phillipines masks could have been put up just for the shot. Anyone recognize this place? It almost looks like a just-starting-to-devolve Pieces of Eight...








Also Sinbad's and the old Santa Monica pier, the Brady Bunch house interior, and the proper way to don a lei:

In the Season 2, Episode 23 of The Jeffersons ("The Wedding), there is a three-footed nautilus mug. Perhaps a Fitz & Floyd?

The mug is on the middle shelf of the case visible through the bedroom door.

Watched the Sinatra documentary on HBO tonight. 41 minutes in theres a nice tiki graphic on the backdrop and a tiki to the right of the famous crooner. The graphic is PNG inspired and the tiki is unfortunately too dark to even hazard a guess . At 1 hour 1 minute in Frank is wearing a cool “tropical” shirt. I can’t wait til part 2 of this doc.
Cheers

The MAD MEN tiki episode that Never Was

Here's a Slate piece about Matthew Weiner's wish list for MAD MEN's final episodes.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2015/05/29/matthew_weiner_s_wish_list_for_mad_men_s_final_episodes_revealed_at_writer.html

Take a look about two thirds of the way down to the crossed out line that starts with "Hawaii".

Though they did go to Hawaii in the season opener a while back and the shot of Lou's bar mentioned further up the thread, neither really delve much into the "Tiki Style" part of that entry.

Did we miss out on the reproduction of a long gone tiki destination? Is Weiner a closeted tiki fan?

Recently finished the last season of Mannix (1975). No more Witco, less tiki. But some ... among the beachbum shacks and mid-century architecture shots





A down and out tiki bar in a fictitious small Latin American country, Waikiki aka Rose's Bar






Searching the harbor ... is this Marina del Rey?


and Pieces of Eight??




From the parking lot


Have to admit these tiki pickings are pretty slim in this season. But wait, what's this, on one of the very last episodes -- someone call tiki central, I think we've spotted something in the harbor!
