Ah! So you're the architectural photographer who worked his magic on the Breezeway! Excellent work. I know enough about photography to understand skill in one discipline doesn't necessarily translate to another. Tiki bars are especially tricky--they need to be illuminated enough to bring out the detail, but not so brightly to destroy the mystery and mood. I'd say you hit the sweet spot!

Southern California probably has more impressive home tiki bars per capita than anyplace else on Earth. I expect you'll have no shortage of suggestions!

Thanks for the kind words. I've seen some amazing builds on T.C. I'd like to apply my skill set and try to do them justice.

Wow, great bar and great photography. Yes, Martin you need to photograph all the great home and commercial tiki establishments found in the website. It would be a fantastic book. I'd buy it and a few thousand others will also buy it and eat it up. Keep it up both of you.

I recently acquired this tall guy...




and with dwindling space in The Breezeway, it was time to do some re-construction...




This architectual detail to the left of Tara has always been a pain... Its always dirty and I never glued the bamboo in, so the pieces are always trying to migrate out of position somehow...




...also, it was derivative from a wall at Ventiki...
So I got to building...

I got the little half wall thing from the closing sale at Don the Beachcomber...



I think it came out nicely. I've removed one of the last elements that was left over from the 'tiki modern' aesthetic that The Breezeway originally had... the goal (for the last few years) has been to create a tiki bar that is solely comprised of vintage and authentic art and artifacts found in a '40s/'50s/ early '60s tiki bar. There are VERY FEW items in The Breezeway that are not vintage or authentic.

Awesome find! I liked the look of the cut bamboo but this is a fine improvement.

I'm with Mike. That new addition looks stellar! But I also thought the cut bamboo curtain looked really neat. So much that I think I'll shelve that idea in the back of my head for a future project.

Cheers,

Jeff

I like the vintage look as well. It relates more to the escapism that a tiki bar is supposed to create.

Thanks everyone, I totally agree.
And all of the bamboo is already gone away to a friend.
