I wanted this room to be as close as I could make it to an authentic Tiki Bar. Or at least one you might see in the 1950's or 1960's. That's it. No crazy colors, bright lites, painted walls or other items that you would not have found in the most classic of Tiki Bars.
Truly an authentic Tiki Lounge where you're transported back to a time where nothing else mattered except the company you shared and the drink in front of you!
I am hoping I can achieve this.
The name, Zombie Hideaway, came to me in a song. I couldn't at first decide on a name and it took about 8-9 months of thinking about one. I wanted it to be different but yet still have that sound of something you would find back in the day. There were a few vintage Zombie named places so when I figured this one out, that was it!
Quick story. One of my all time favorite bands is "The Amazing Crowns" which were a great group back in the late 90's that came out of Providence, Rhode Island. Heavy Rockabiily music that moves the soul!! I am sure some of you have heard of them. Anyways, the guitarist and drummer were in another band called the "Speed Devils"(another awesome band!!). On their self titled CD (If you like the Amazing Crowns or say Reverend Horton Heat, check this CD out! You won't be disappointed!), "Speed Devils", there is a song called "Zombie Rock".
I was working in the Lounge and was singing along when the lines,
"There's A Crazy Little Place
called The Hideaway,
Where They Play That
Zombie Rock All Day"
These lines struck a long waiting nerve! That was it. The Zombie Hideaway!!
That's the story so far. I will get some photos posted in the next post of the beginning of my build.
Thanks for checking this out!!
