it is more of a rock bar with a model of the Kon Tiki in the window than a Tiki Bar.
If in Zurich, which is a great city, check out Mata Hari which is crazy and has Tikis.

The Kon-Tiki is not a Tiki Bar, it has no Tikis in there.
But it's still worth a visit.
Nearly nothing has changed there since the opening in 1955.

The Kon-Tiki is a nice place to drink a beer or two, or even more...

Thanks! First time I get to see those details. Yes it's not the Mai Kai, but those lamps and stuff are original, and way cool.

Aloha Folks,

Found a Postcard from the Kon-Tiki bar in Zurich from the 1950's.
The Postcard shows the "Floss-Bar (raft-bar)", it was called "Floss Hütte (raft-hut)" back then.
The fishtank and some of the tables are still there today - (see the pictures on my earlier post).



mahalo,
HT
