Nice cards Tom. Here are a few more from my collection showing the the Lagoon room that featured a great mural and a very early use of the hanging fish net floats.







Looking forward to the opening of the new Tiki bar at the Brookdale Clifton's.

John O,

Thanks for posting HB Tiki's brochure, what great collection of photos. That also helped me solve a mystery on a postcard that I have had for a long time.

And here is my mystery postcard, the location now confirmed as Cliftons Pacific Seas.





And I just noticed this on a recent visit to the Brookdale location. That plaque in the left of your postcard, it's on display on the Brookdale's 3rd-floor...

Clifton's is now closed for remodeling.
However,their website includes a hint of the promise of a Tiki bar:

In addition, guests will encounter an entirely new world of wonder within the same walls. A historic soda fountain, specialty grocery, five distinct lounges and bars, a butcher shop and world class bakery-- along with several surprises-- will complement the existing Cafeteria in serving our diverse community.

While visiting my parents in Florida a few years ago, I found a pristine colored postcard of the outside of Clifton's "Pacific Seas." When I find these kinds of things I like to think I'm bringin' them on home, back to LA ;)

Wrong Clifton's, that's the Brookdale location.

The Clifton's Pacific Seas cafeteria was shown on "Things that Aren't There Anymore" on KCET this afternoon. Included a 3 to 4 minute story with an interview of Esther York, the Lei Shop lady.
