You've done such an excellent job the place looks 100 years old. Wendy

Parts might be! I'm seeing some seriously vintage bits of nautical salvage in there: the cleats, Bosun's chair, and the two triple pulley block & tackles visible in the first picture, the small ship's deck ventilator in the third, and the beautiful portholes visible in all three shots. Plus those Bongos, the use of salvaged lumber throughout, the vintage electric percolator, the ships barometer and pressure gauge, the old wooden screen held closed by a gaff, various lines & tackle, a couple husk coconuts... I'm just having fun looking through all the little details; how many Tiki Bars have a Beer Light in them without feeling like a revisionist misstep? That particular Anchor Steam light fits!

Wow guys, thanks for the great feedback.

I joined awhile ago, but didn't post my photo's because I thought my bar wasn't as cool as the others.

I have a bunch of items from the Trader Vic's Oakland restaurant that closed years ago and going to do my bedroom next.

I'll get more photo's up soon.

"Not cool enough"? It's over the top... except maybe for the tiki sign. That might be the weakest element pictured.

You have done a very nice job, it has all the prerequisites
except for one, a name

Give it a name, put it on a plaque & replace the Tiki Bar sign
keep up the good work!

Yeah, that sign was a gift and I hate it, but I'm stuck with it for now.

Maybe it will get stolen one day
