Description:


Well here is a new find from the Show Me state of Missouri. The Club Mali Kai was located inside the Red Carpet Inn in Bridgeton, Missouri (just outside of St. Louis). I acquired this brochure from the hotel.



Inside the hotel lobby, not much to look at.



But what's this? A sign for happy hour at Club Mali Kai.



Here is the photo of the bar. Lamps, fishnet floats, Outrigger.



There is a Tiki on the left and it looks like a row of Tikis on the back wall.




To make things a little more interesting, here is a Mali Kai drink menu that sold on ebay a few months ago. It had no location listed.






Looks to be the same Tiki as the entrance sign.



A research project for our Missouri field agents.

Nice postcard/internet archeology, DC !

That Mali Kai menu is actually a good example of Poly Pop's Transmission Tradition, by its cut-out concept and much of its design being based on the famed Ren Clark menu:
