Not from Mexico but...

From Venezuela, like Mister Naufrago.
Here's a good question:
What's the connection between This record and the extinct Hawaii Kai in New York ?

No mucho misterio, Im afraid.
Venezuela isnt really a good place for tiki.
You know, it is a tropical paradise in itself.
Hawaii Kai is classic of Caracas night life
Even Hugo Chavez was one of their patrons for a time.
But was a tiki bar only for a couple of years in the early 60s, then a groovy discotheque and popular radio program during mid 60s (whence the Small Faces connection) and a live Salsa venue during the last three decades.
Believe or not decor remained almost intact during all this time.
Closed as Hawaii Kai five or six years ago (today its called Nostalgia)but everybody still refers to it like Hawaii Kai.
