Found another one just in time for Mardi Gras! The Beach-comber in Shreeveport with the Mai Tai dining room from 1964.

Found a few more Tiki entries from the Bayou state.

First off, the Blue Hawaii in Lafayette.
Anyone recognize that cover image?

(hint, think Vegas)

The back cover encouraging aloha ware.



A nice array of drinks


and food



Next up the Chin Tiki in Alexandria, another one of the traditional Tiki name grabs.





And finally, the Happy Hour from the Tiki Room lounge in the Bamboo restaurant located in Shreveport.




Love that Cajun Tiki!

These are fantastic, thanks for sharing! The NOLA Mai Tai restaurant was the first place I ever saw tiki mugs.

I picked up this nice newspaper archive photo of the bar at Hawaiian Luau restaurant at the Fontainbleau Hotel in New Orleans. Skipper Vince's bar, hmmm a nod to Skipper Kent perhaps.







The designer was Robert L Bennett from New York. The article on the back of the photo pegs the grand opening on Tuesday May 21, 1963.
