We've got this 3 season room off out 1950's Cape Cod that must've been a self-made home renovation long ago. Basically bricks and storm windows... I'm actually waiting for it to collapse under it's on weight some day. But until then it's my Boom Boom Room (or rather at least six months out of the year it is).

It stated slowly, a few things here and there, but was kicked up a notch two summers ago when I lined most of it in split bamboo, last year was a great find of a vintage rattan sectional, this year already it's a Witco bar. At this rate it should be killer by 2050

I don't have many pics, but I wanted to start this thread to kick it into gear.

Here's a teaser:


So, the name has various sources, which I think makes it that much better, most I've learned of after the name stuck:
1927-2008 a bar in Laguna Beach, first a serviceman's bar and then a gay bar from 1940's onward (no tiki)
(the term Boom Boom was supposedly Navy speak for sex)
1960's play about a bisexual go-go dancer (probably no tiki)
Nightclub in the Fontainebleu hotel, Miami Beach
Same nightclub was a locale on "Surfside Six", where Cha Cha O'Brien and the Boom Boom Boys performed. Both in the 60's
Portland strip club (tiki? doubt it)
Possibly the home bar/game room of Rob Zombie, media room of Mariah Carey's, and glow in the dark, psychedlia room of Fieldy's, bassist of Korn (or "Mtv Cribs" used it as an odd generic term at some point)
The Standard in New York's club, although it's no longer officially called that, it seems to have stuck also. (no tiki, but glass bathroom stalls overlooking the High Line)

I've been thinking that I should really add more photos, but It'll have to be in the spring when I can re-open the Boom Boom Room for the season.
Until then, I stumbled across this one of the sectional and Co Co Joes.

Pauly,

I too am anxiously awaiting the time when I can reopen my tiki space. It's hard to live through the winter,isn't it? Can't wait to see more pictures of your space in a few weeks.
