wow, we talk about Tahiti Nui all the time, but we didn't have a listing for it in Locating!




i found this nifty cocktail napkin at an estate sale, and wanted to post it somewhere.

AllisonV - Thanks for the report. That place looks like a lot of fun. I really like the bamboo work in the ceiling and the photo of everyone dancing. Doesn't seem to be too much dancing at tiki bars anymore, although the old postcards and ads show that was an integral part of the experience back in the 60s and earlier.

Here is my Tahiti Nui shirt. I saw like four of these at Tiki Oasis this year.



A few more photos of the sign and the Tikis outside.







A great little place on the north-shore.

The Tahiti Nui is still the only happening place to be on Kauai!
Live Hawaiian music every night. A local hang out full of tiki memorabilia in Hanalei.
The mai tais will have you walking on your lips.

Here's a photo I came across recently in a 1970 book, showing a good time at Tahiti Nui.



Don't know if we've established when Tahiti Nui was established, but it looks like it was hopping in 1970 anyway!

Tahiti Nui is featured in the new movie The Descendants staring George Clooney.


Found this photo of the film shoot in less than desirable north shore weather.




Clip from the LA Times this weekend:



Hanalei Town, North Shore

What it is: Small, charming town in front of Mt. Namahana with waterfalls in the background.

What it starred in: "South Pacific," "Lilo and Stitch" (2002) and "The Descendants." In fact, the Tahiti Nui bar (5-5134 Kuhio Highway) plays itself in "Descendants," and Parra says it's a great watering hole, popular with locals.

How to see it: It's west of Princeville across a one-lane bridge. As you arrive in Hanalei Town, you feel as if you've traveled back in time.

I just saw these on a shared link to a current craigslist ad from the Bay Area.
Ad quote: "I purchased this set of 8 Plaster Tiki Heads from the Tahiti Nui when I lived on Kauai in 1999. I left Hawaii in 2008 and they have been in rubbermaids wrapped up since then.

I was told then from a very trusted source they came from one of the walls and were made in the 1960's, at the time they were in a storage box, they remodeled a few times(I knew the Bartender, probably too well;)))."
