Name:Surf Rider Hotel Captain Cook Room
Type:bar
Street:Waikiki Beach
City:
State:HI
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:
Status:defunct

Description:
I got this really great little table top folding Tiki drink menu from the Captain Cook Room bar at the Surf Rider Hotel on the beach in Waikiki so I decided to start a thread for the Surf Rider.





I have a brochure with a photo of the room, rather sparse but some Tiki art.



There was a tiki in the cool lobby (on the left).



And a Tiki on the brochure



I have always loved the Surf Rider logos.





And the primo hotel location on Waikiki beach.

Phillip,

Right you are, two Tikis!

Harro,

Now that's funny! Those aren't shorts, they're "Cabana Mates"!

Reminds me of the NBA in the early 1980's.


Here is a little info and a nice napkin from Arkiva Tropika:



The Surf Rider Hotel was built by Matson Lines in 1952, next to
the Moana Hotel in Waikiki. It later became a wing of the Moana Hotel, after being sold to the Sheraton in 1959.

The Surf Rider used that cool logo on ashtrays




and coasters

Here is a close up of the drink menu



Love the Mai Tai with an oversized glass filled with "mostly dark, rich rum"!
