I know that these two places, right next to each other (with the Tangaroa), must be amazing...or must have BEEN, I heard a rumor that they have been renovated to some extent !!? Arrrrgh, I need to know...Oh WHERE is the art patron that will sponsor me a photo expedition to these places...!? Why o why am I not financially independent! Well, somebody, GO !!!



I believe they were Lurker's first contact with Tiki (in the late 80s?), and his inspiration for all his work he has done for Euro-Tiki since.


Well, thank god for Google street view, the bars still look unchanged from the outside:



How often does Google street view get updated? What an amazing technology...

Hello, I'm from Lisbon. I go to these bars many times.
In Lisbon there are 2 Bora Bora's and 1 Tangaroa.

I can take "good" photos if you want!



Cheers,
Marco

Ole! and welcome Marco! Please DO take "good" pictures of the place! Gather stories too! Anything you can! Lusitania Tiki needs you! As the self-proclaimed ambassador of tiki in Mexico, I salute you! When I visited gorgeous Lisbon, my Portuguese was not good enough to talk to the barman... Hope to visit again soon!
P.S. Marco, did you had a Mexican girlfriend named Jimena who introduced you to tiki? If so, she's my friend!

Hello Zeta!Thank you! I will take some good pictures, I promise... both Bora Bora's and Tangaroa

I'm not and never been a Tiki expert, don't collect things.
I never had a Mexican girlfriend, I discovered Tiki culture by chance recently (in the internet), and I find it interesting!

The first time I went to Bora Bora bar in Lisbon was in 1996. And I like it immediately... the decoration, the mugs, the drinks, etc. Since then I go there regurly. Maybe its time to buy my frist mug to celebrate ;P

In 2007 I went to Madrid a few days, and I saw one Bora Bora Bar there when I was walking in the street. It was during the day and at that hour the bar was closed.

Cheers,
Marco

Ah, don't got there, it's totally BORAing!



The bar looks nothing…



...like the original rendering:





It's like they make their Tikis out of tile or sumptin - don't they have any wood !?

And their mugs are totally boring too:



Kinda run of the mill…



…and then they have this silly dry ice thing going...



…totally tacky, I mean c'mon! :



And right next door, they have the TANGAROA, an equally un-inspired joint:



it's like you've seen one, you've seen them all:



…again, Tile Tiki everywhere:



…and silly mosaic windows:



…some A-frame painting, kinda OK…



… so if you wanna have a good time, don't go there, naaah.

Thanks for the pics Sven,
I'll be sure to never go.

Not that I'd probably ever get to Portugal anyways.

Thanks - I was hoping that my irony would not be lost on the viewers

What is missing though is the acknowledgement that the original queerer Mr. Ho has seen this reply, which took some time and effort to put together.

It is this lack of communication confirmation which makes websites like this loose out to the more immediate social networks like Facebook
