Oh hell yeah, ANYTHING of Hornes is awesome.

Dayton used to have some killer tiki-themed places, including Georgie Rudin's The Tropics and the Kon Tiki Theater. We even had a very short-lived tiki bar in the Oregon District, but it didn't make it either.
We do have DaddyKatz though!

Hope to see you around.

I didn't even follow my own rule, new page new photos!

Thanks for keeping me on my toes Chuck!

Well, I'm somewhat mobile after surgery, have not really done much except tedious type work, but it is fun none the less.

















I put some shelves in the bar, but those pictures will not be posted till I get it cleaned up.

I tried to take some ambiance shots, didn't turn out too great, these shots are a TON brighter than real life.....

I need at least 2 float lamps and some other things.

Just thought I would stop in and post a pic.



I favor the blue, but the red just seemed to do the trick.

Bar is up and functional, I'm working on some small stuff to go around, I've antiqued a map that I found, just trying to figure out how to 'frame' it.

came across 8 barstools and a pub table for 100 bucks, now I just need to figure out how to tiki-fy them a bit.

I am as well! in love with the floor that is. it is quite expensive though, I think doing it DIY is possible but you need to have access to the materials. anyone thinking about it, send me a PM and I can go over costs, level of difficulty etc.

I'll post up a few more pictures, got the shevling and lighting in the custom built bar complete, top is fully epoxied in. I'll show a photo of the map I want to hang and I drafted up the plans for the shelving unit, now to find a nice tapa cloth for the background, bar is in desperate need of color!

Here are just a couple updates.



Here is the bartop finally poured out, I would say it is close to an 1/8" thick of poured epoxy. I love the epoxy, just didn't love the amount of prep work it required and wish I wasn't an idiot and started with silicone caulk!





Here is the back of the bar, I only put 2 shelves in and trimmed out the back. Not sure I really like the tortoise shell bamboo pieces of the bar was awfully 'brown-tan' so it needed something. I have the lighting complete, will post a better photo of that later.



This may get me banned, but I have deflowered this poor tiki to make a bar game down in the basement. Bimini Ring Game.
