Amazing!Just fantastic. I wonder if the three sided Ku tiki lamp on those tables is similar to this pink version Ku lamp. Athough this version has a Repro Kahiki shade compliments of Tiki Skip's fine craftmanship.

That one went for some big dinero on ebay, well above my paygrade. Here is a close up.
Interesting that they used the logo girl from the Lanai, which later became the Hawaii Kai in New York.

Would make a great tiki bar again! The entry would make a nice cave.
P.S. Kona Club in Oakland was an English Pup before I got hold of it.
Tiki Bars I've designed/built. TikiCat, Royal Hawaiian, Kona Club, Frankie's Tiki Room, Pacific Seas, Don the Beachcomber,Forbidden Island, Kon Tiki Tucson, Tiki No,etc....

This sucks. Love the Cat & the fiddle. Great English pub food and outdoor seating. If this turns into some chain restaurant it would be a damn shame.
A tiki bar would be awesome but I won't hold my breath for that!

I read this little mention from a Rolling Stones/The Doors/Music site: It was about how the Doors met The Stones. Ray Manzarek is being interviewed.
What was the feeling like just after the show?
We toasted each other with champagne at the Hollywood Bowl, to a great performance. It started subtly then climaxed. That show was like great sex! The Doors having sex with their Los Angeles audience.
There's a rumor that Mick Jagger can be seen in the audience on the DVD.
Jagger was there and, come of think of it, all of the Stones were there, as well. We all had dinner before the show with the Stones. Now I don't know where they were during the show, but there are rumors that Jim's girl was sitting on Jagger's lap. And I remember our meal with the band before the show, at Mouling's Chinese restaurant, a long-gone place that specialized in Navy Grog and special tropical drinks.
The opening acts that night were pretty special, too.
Wow, it was the Chamber Brothers and Steppenwolf. What a show, man! The Chambers Brothers were coming off "Time," their big hit. My soul had been psychedelized by the Chambers Brothers. And Steppenwolf, "Born to be Wild" -- head out on the highway. Amazing.

Excellent urban archaeology.
Apparently, the new lease holders have a passing appreciation of the Polynesian past and are going to restore the gardens.
