Here is an ad for the Maori Village that features Hal Aloma and his Islanders. They also added a Tokyo Steakhouse.



I got a postcard somewhere from that Trylon International Bazaar that Bahama Don posted from down the street. Will have to add that.

Now there's a thread to revive, about a cool Tiki temple of which I would love to see some good photos from its heyday!

Let's hope some photos show up from the newspaper archives. Until then, another ad with a different looking Tiki.

Found more better close up images of the Maori Village building shown before.





Look at those carvings, what a place!

If the place was really as elaborate as the rendering suggests, it still amazes me that there is no photographic evidence of it.

Found this facebook page of the PBA alumni of the 1972 Spring Banquet held at the Maori Village.

Very cool to see photos of the inside, unfortunately nothing on the outside.

here is one of bifcozz and my favourite menu covers.






I do not want to spoil anything but I learned today that we will be able to see a life-size version of the Maori Village menu cover very soon. It is being used as wall decor in a new restaurant that is opening soon.

Also on view on page 158 of the book TIKI POP



(I believe the typo in "ENTERS" was fixed in the final version)

I visited Cane Rhum Bar & Caribbean Kitchen in Charleston, SC a few weeks ago to see the life-size version of the Maori Village menu they had made into a wall wrap. It's part of the decor inside their small tiki nook.

(Eight years late chiming in here - sorry) I grew up 17 blocks south of this restaurant, and one block west. I seem to remember going into it once as a kid but it was too expensive (and exotic!) for us to frequent as a family. The exterior did look like the renditions shown here, and I'll see if I can find a photo somewhere. I'm not sure what it looked like once you turned into the drive, but the facade on the street kept the same appearance throughout it's life from days of The Maori Village right up to it's days as Gilligan's. I remember when it became Gilligan's in the '80s, my mother and a few friends of hers from work would go there for happy hour once every few weeks. She said the drinks were strong, the bar snacks tasty, and the prices fair. By that point in time there would have been at least one prostitute on each block of broadway and plenty of guys standing on corners selling something to the cars that would slow down and motion them over. I left home when I was 18 (can you blame me???) and I'm not sure what happened after 1983. It is currently an empty lot, and the entire neighborhood has changed . . . . but the prostitutes and dealers are still there.
