I believe we are talking about the vintage Polynesian restaurants & Bars
and the mugs from the after mentioned places, Many of these are Chinese restaurants
that offered a tropical atmosphere and cocktails which we refer to as "Classic Tiki"

They are well documented & not open for interpretation if you are referring to classic "Tiki"
I am not talking about today's "home" bars & lounges as you are free do do whatever you like

But classic "Tiki" is a defined style & a look that is pretty much set in stone
and if you are looking to reproduce that in an authentic way then they are certain aesthetic rules
that do apply, which are not open for personal interpretation.

So there!
