Type:restaurant
Street:
City:Anaheim
State:CA
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:
Status:defunct

Description:


Here is another one of many Pre-Tiki South Seas restaurants and bars that were located in the greater Los Angeles area in the 1940's.

I recently picked up a menu from The South Seas in Anaheim that featured a rendering of a lovely Hawaiian maiden on the cover.



Inside the menu are the New Rum Drinks



The food had not caught up to the exotic nature of the drinks however.




The back cover looks familiar...





Same image that is on the menu from the Hurricane located in San Francisco. Either an early form of TTT or the two restaurants were related.




I have also seen this matchbook from the South Seas in Anaheim. I am assuming this is the same place.

The South Seas was owned at one point by Vivian Laird




Vivian Laird also owned several other restaurants including the Bohemia in Long Beach and the Garden of Allah in Seal Beach.

Often these images were generic clip art sort of images that the printer or the menu company
would provide for free. you see this on business cards and generic matchbook art. This also happens with Tiki mugs and swizzle stick sculpts
