Name:Duke Kahanamoku's
Type:restaurant
Street:International Marketplace
City:Honolulu
State:HI
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:
Status:defunct

Description:
Duke Kahanamoku's restaurant occupied the Don the Beachcomber's location in the International Marketplace in Waikiki in the late 1960's. Hosted Don Ho and other famous Hawaiian musicians as well as Martin Denny.

Here is a postcard I have with Don Ho.


An exterior postcard from Duke's (from Mimi Paynes website) compared to the postcard from Don the Beachcombers.





Some brochures from ebay advertising the music (with the Surfers and Martin Denny) and the food.









A swizzle.

Nice line up, D.C.! I could make good use of some of these items for THIS page in my next book:





Though I am not a Don Ho fan per se, that baby's gotta go in there!

Bigbro and Puamana,

Thanks for posting the great shirt and menu. The shirt definitely has to go in the Look of Tiki with the glasses, menu, etc. What a classic!

Here is another style Suck Em Up glass posted Super Eight by on the Suck Em Up thread.

Found this photo online of a young woman siting on the Bamboo bridge at Duke's. You can see the bridge in the postcard when it was Don the Beachcombers.

I just found this site tonight and am thrilled! I've got a set of four of the SUCK 'EM UP! tumblers plus a woman's dress in the famous SUCK 'EM UP! print.
I'd post a photo of the dress, but I'm new here and have NO clue how to do that!
Anyone care to give me instructions? Thanks!

Cancel that. I think I've figured it out. Let's see:





Oh, yeah! It worked!



(Is there a function here that will notify me by email if someone replies to my post? Thanks!)

What is the price value on one of those Suck'em Up shirts? They are bold and beautiful.

Teakey I know where there is one and I believe the guy wants $300-$400 for it.
They are not easy to come by, especially in XL .

Well what-do-ya know, Duke's had a custom Coconut mug. Saw this on ebay, it is way cool!





Looks like a spin-off of the Don the Beachcombers mug with a Hawaiian manufacturer.

Ironically, the Dukes on Mauai as well as Kauai are places to go where the wait staff will be totally devoid of anyone with Hawaiian blood, from my observations (Maui twice and Kauai once).

A few more images of Don Ho and Duke's at the International Market Place from an oversized postcard I purchased.





Also another matchbook from ebay with Duke and and the Kimo Wilder McVay Don Ho show.
