Name:The Hawaiian Restaurant & Lounge
Type:restaurant
Street:146 Boylston Street
City:Boston
State:MA
Zip:02116
country:USA
Phone:426-6825
Status:defunct

Description:
The Hawaiian - an island paradise situated across the Common in the heart of Boston - excells in Polynesian and Cantonese Cuisine. Leisurely atmosphere and relaxing informality, induced by a wide array of tempting island drinks served at the Waikiki Lounge, mark the Hawaiian as Boston's best Polynesian restaurant.

My internet search turned up a big, fat nothing, so I thought I'd just quote the back of their postcard.

Here is the postcard that I just purchased. It's marked 1967.





A couple of enlargements. The Oceanic Arts New Caledonia figure on the wall is what caught my eye. The lamps are pretty great too.

Either it is long gone, or was somewhere in this big building.

Boy, I wish you guys would stop finding stuff from my back yard!
Could this be the mug?



It must be. The writing's the same & just for the record, it's long gone.

I'd say based on the font, that's definitely it.

Nice mug, by the way!

Postcard says the Hawaiian and the Waikiki Lounge. Maybe that's yet another place?

I took it to mean that the Waikiki Lounge was the name of the bar in the Hawaiian Restaurant.

Fabulous mug, BK.

I think Kate's right on that one. I just found that mug in May. It's definitely one of my favorites.

I found some swizzle sticks from these locations earlier this week.

The back of the red one reads: 146 BOYLSTON ST., BOSTON and then has a manufacturers mark and HONG KONG.

The green one has the same mark and reads: BOSTON, MASS and WEST HARTFORD, CONN.

What a great postcard Tiki Kate started this tread with. Saw this news photo on ebay a while back that was from the grand unveiling of the new "Cup of the Gods" Tiki mug from the Hawaiian.








Photo of the mug.





Anybody got one of those swizzles to trade?

The ebay seller put the photo back up for sale and I was able to get it. Here is a scan without the watermark.


Close up of the mugs - looks like the umbrellas had The Hawaiian printed on them.


Now those are hard to find.
