Tried for this Kodak slide photo of the Bali Hai restaurant on ebay.

Nice view of the interior with the blue Tiki bowl in action.



What's that drink menu doing on the floor next to the women's purse? Treasure hunting perhaps?

I picked up a postcard showing another unknown Tiki bar in a New Orleans hotel. This one is the Reef Lounge located in the Hilton Inn by the airport.

A somewhat rare matchbook from the short-lived Beachcomber that became the Bali Hai in New Orleans.



I have several of the Beachcomber mugs but this is the first paper item I have seen from the Beachcomber.

I found this one over the weekend in New Orleans. The old lady in the antique store said she remembered Bamboo Villa but I can't seem to find anything about it online. Anybody know anything?

Dustycajun,
You have done masterful research regarding Tiki activity in Louisiana. It gives me hope that an occasional artifact will surface here. Been slim pickings so far. I was told recently that there was a Tiki-type restaurant/bar in Alexandria that closed in the early 1980s. Still have yet to discover any evidence. Thanks again for your efforts.

I was a member years ago but had to re register (same name) for unknown reasons?

I posted this reply on the wrong topic but didn't know how to delete it.

Cajun Tiki, a term I never heard until today. HA

Nice photographs!

I remember going to most of the places mentioned here as a child/teenager. I have some mugs, matchbooks and swizzle sticks.

The only one I don't recognize is "Bamboo Villa". I believe Barney's was a seafood restaurant.

Bali Ha'i had a distinct accent to the name unlike others with that same title.

I posted this ages ago, it's the blue tiki bowl my grandmother got in the 1960's? from Bali Ha'i. What a fantastic place as was Pontchartrain Beach amusement park attached/next door.

And the Polynesian food menu.
