Jon Paul,

You have been on a roll with the posts today! I had this one on my list to add some day. I have the matchbook and here is the postcard showing the bar at the Bamboo Room.




Lots of bamboo and fish floats but no Tiki. Also a nice piano bar.


The description on the back of the card dated 1966.

Well what do you know, there was a second Bamboo Room bar located in Chicago at the Parkway Hotel. This one was an earlier Pre-Tiki joint from the 1950's.

A matchbook and postcard from ebay.



Dig that font.
