Nice pic DC...as a restaurant guy, I'm focusing on the chairs. They were something you did not change out often. OGR

DC


first guess is Hawaii Kai, New York (formally the Lanai)



Interesting! What led you to that guess: The Tiki in the b.g., the waterfall architecture, the table lamps, the furniture...?


3 hours of searching this site...... Am I right?



I don't think anybody here can answer that question so far....in your 3 Hr search, you must have come up with some examples that you can clip and re-paste here, then?

Yup, as soon as I guess it right... I have searching to do!

While searching, if you guys come across any pictures with this lamp, let me know:





JonPaul has a picture of some Trader Dick's tikis that look just like it.
Thanks.
Buzzy Out!

One more guess (my head is going to explode)

Is it the bar used in the movie "The Cracksman"

My turn to ask "What the hell?"

I found four tiki mugs the are basically the head of the Hawaiian Village Nui Nui Tiki Mug.
Anyone ever seen these? Home project? Or did I find something rare and cool?













Here is the only problem I see with this thread. There was a couple other posts right after mine and now I don't know if nobody has info on these or they got buried so fast, no one is seeing them. I am also using this post as kinda like a bump just to see if anyone has info. Thanx in advance

Sorry, but this is not a guessing game. Uninformed guessing just confuses the matter. If you have any visual evidence to support your suggestions, post them WITH the proposal and name them. British Tiki did not have any of the items on that table. Where in the film did you see anything that looks like that setting? The whole movie was shot on a set in England.

Hate to derail this thread any further....

The outside pic of the tiki bar in the movie was simply named "tiki"
The waterfall in the Mayfair beachcomber looked similar to DC's original pic
the set was "home-made"
in England
ugly painted tikis

Granted i couldn't find the lamp or (halls?) teapot... but it wasn't just a wild ass guess....

Found it - not the lamps gave it away, but the weird rattan arches sticking out from the chairs:


The Aku Aku at the Stardust Casino Las Vegas



The lamps do confirm the location. Tipsy even commented:

Excellent work Bigbro!

If you look at this photo you can see that lava wall/fountain area in the back with with the same exact chairs and table, and another painted Tiki.



I thought this would be more of a stumper.
