I don't know enough to add much to this thread. But isn't it a bit unique that this tiki movement, or whatever you want to call it, includes not only collecting artifacts, studying history, creating new art, but also the expectation that others will open and maintain bars/restaurants devoted to the movement.




Excellent point, which does suggest Tiki remains in the ascendancy, post 2004, even as some restaurants come, and too many go.

Trader Vics did heavily invest in opening at LA Live, as a theme venue.
The only other theme venues @ LA Live are Conga Room, a latin theme, and ESPN Zone, sort of a Dave&Buster's theme.

Alternatively, Polynesian cuisine could be considered its own genre like Chinese or Indian, yet these are linked to an ethnic group, whereas Tiki does not necessarily equate to Pacific Islander. If anything, the waitresses wear Chinese-inspired gowns, and the menu has such Chinese mainstays as Kung Pao Chicken.

However, instead of a pair of Dragons, or Pandas, there are a pair of Tiki Diablo's giant Tikis to draw in prospective customers.
