I got a big kick out of this photo of what looks to be a suitcase bar that's been re-modded to produce tropical-cocktails, complete with plastic Tiki mugs, and what appears to be a bottle of Trader Vic's Mai Tai mix partly visible on the left.



In case the image doesn't show up due to Tiki Central's current DNS issues, you can view it over at the wonderful vernacular photo site I ganked it from,

Me too, but I'd definitely stock it with better ingredients, and lose the crappy plastic mugs.

Not sure how to get all that liquid through the TSA security checkpoint at the airport though.

I have this same portable bar and well, all that stuff won't fit in it. I am using it to guest bartend at a party Saturday and I'll have a picnic basket and cooler in tow for the overflow.

I have a portable tiki bar also, it folds flat to 2 inches thick.
It does not fit in a suitcase, but it is portable. You can take it camping or set it up in a hotel room easily. I set it up near my car, because I would not want to carry all the mixers, ice and alcohol very far.

Here is a picture from a recent camping trip.

You can find those sometimes at the thrifts for cheap.
I reupholstered mine with some faux leopard-skin & threw in some random bottles from the bar -


Think I should finally find some classier (?) glasses to go with it, I think...

CaptnKirk, love the folding Tiki Bar - what a cool idea!

(pssst - you might want to ditch the plastic Party City Tiki, I think you can get excommunicated for that! Just tell them you used it to keep your bar lightweight and portable so you could spread the joy of Tiki to the ends of the earth)

I am planning to to ditch the plastic tiki. However the tiki faithful have not complained yet! Once the get a look at the other side of the bar they get very quiet. After 3 or 4 perfectly mixed classic tiki drinks they forget to complain about the painted plastic tiki.

If you can not come to paradise, I will bring it to you.

The guys in Sarong-O-Rama @ Hukilau this year had one complete with shaker & strainer, a lil ice bucket etc. It was soooo cool, they mixed some fun rum grog and even sliced a lime to squeeze in it and enjoyed a nice libation while showing off their fashionable threads...

And for you secret agent types this one comes with a cocktail shaker and two compartments for Gin and/or tonic, or maybe you can rig it up to self distruct for unauthorized useage.
