KTiki....you guys rock! Very inspired by the amount of effort you've gone to. Looks like you have an awesome Tiki Art Collection. We love Tiki Modern style also. In the midst of a backyard makover will post some pics soon...Feathestone58 (also on flickr pics)

Absolutely amazing, KTiki! I thought I knew what we were going to do - in a traditionally kitschy way - with my own project room, but your room looks very upscale and relaxing. We're lucky to have Oceanic Arts nearby but it's amazing what you've done down there. Thanks for sharing it.

Hey KTiki, your bar is certainly something to aspire to! We are moving to Brisbane in November and will probably just be renting for a long time, but intend to get as much portable tiki going as possible!

We have a tentative plan to visit Perth in January to get some tiki for my big birthday - Hula Bula is on the cards for sure. Any chance we could visit your amazing bar while we're there?!

Despite the climate, the large percentage of Samoans and New Zealanders and the proximity to Polynesia, Brisbane is somewhat of a tiki wasteland, and I'm sad to say that I'm not helping...

Very classy!

As for the whole "traditional tiki bar" thing... Well, I don't think there is anything wrong with updating the concept. There is nothing wrong with going strictly traditional either, just as long as everyone doesn't do it. As a musician/composer, I firmly believe that if Mozart was alive today, he would not be writing music with a traditional symphony. His new music might have symphonic elements, but it would also have synthesizers, samplers, guitars, etc. He would be too intrigued by the idea of exploring new musical territories to be stuck in the past. All masters of any genre of art take the traditional way of doing things, and add their own unique twist to it. Some practically reinvent it from the ground up. So I believe it should be with tiki. It was once considered evil to write music in minor keys. Today some tiki fans consider it evil to have a tiki that is painted, or lights up. Both objections seem silly to me. We must progress and change, or we might as well be living in a museum! Creatures that don't adapt and progress go extinct.

What a way cool tiki space you've created. Congrats. If ever you venture to Hervey Bay Qld let me know. You would be welcome at the Pu'uhonua Bar for a Mai Tai or two any time.

Awesome bar where do you get most of your stuff ? I have been working the local antique stores I find decent stuff but pay dearly.
