The Kona Club is the worlds best kept secret.

That room has it all and people should frequent it more often.

Where the heck would you have put giant walls at Frankie's, ha ha?? That place is as small as a postage stamp. An amazingly AWESOME postage stamp, but still a stamp.

Here's a link to how I did the roof treatment in the small secret bar I created within the main Tiki Room.

I'm quite sure this is a stupid question, but: how do you attach the round bamboo to the ceiling?

I'm in the wall & ceiling planning stages for my bar at the moment; this thread has been really inspirational.

Here's what I did to the ceiling in my breakfast nook. There was an expensive piece of worm-eaten Tapa at the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale a few years back. The next year, I bought it marked down to a reasonable price.

My framer suggested using Gatorboard, which is very light, rigid, and moistureproof, so I cut and/or patched pieces to cover enough panels for the ceiling. I velcroed them to the ceiling, and covered the gaps with painted wooden slats.

The Gatorboard is a great idea. It makes the whole job much easier, by allowing you to work on the ground, not over your head.

What thickness "Gator Board" did you use?

I used 3/16". My individual panels are smaller than 2x3 feet, and the long edges are supported by the trim. I'm just guessing, but you might want 1/2" for big or unsupported pieces. That thickness is the thinnest that the manufacturer guarantees against bowing.

Thank you for the idea. I may use this approach on my ceiling.
