A bump for Tiki Oasis.

Has anyone ever been to this place ??

In a neighborhood full of cheesy tourist bars, this Kuhio Ave hole-in-the-wall is a real Hulabilly anomaly...



It's probably the only "Shit-Kicker" bar where you can order a Mai Tai without getting your ass whooped. I remember stumbling into this place several years ago but I only drank beer.



So are Urban Cowboys "Tiki" ??



They are in Hawaii !!

Looks like Travolta is in Texas, according to his Lone Star.

My friend Bill just moved to Nashville. I told him to check it out and let me know how it is. Funny!

Before you go two-steppin' at Nashville Waikiki you can go shopping at Aloha Cowboy in Makawao.

Nashville Waikiki isn't "Waikiki" in Nashville, it's "Nashville" in Waikiki.

This will be a great year for closet cowboys.

Book into our partner hotels and get good eats!
We just posted the info for our partner hotels on our website:
http://www.tikioasis.com/2013/hotel_booking/the_kings_inn/
http://www.tikioasis.com/2013/hotel_booking/comfort_inn_&_suites/

King's Inn $104-$119
Comfort Inn & Suites $145

King's Inn offers tons of free parking, shuttle to Crowne Plaza, and 10% off at The Waffle Spot diner for hotel guests from the "Tiki Oasis" group

Comfort Inn is less than a 10 minute walk from Crowne Plaza and includes a free full breakfast buffet

By contrast, you can stay at the Motel 6 and get absolutely no food service and pay $125 / night.

I have stayed at Kings Inn a few times and can recommend it
it is a cool Mid Century Motor Lodge and much nicer then the Motel 6
at the same price.

I have returned to the Kings Inn every year. Now I know the manager and also the front desk gal. They have been there for years. It's nice to return to a place that remembers you and greets you with a big smile and asks what's the theme for your room party this year! Oh and the waffles ROCK!

The King's Inn waffles are known all over town, they use a malted flour and you can get them full size or "mini" which go great with a cup o' joe first thing:


They also have a GREAT mexican food restaurant called the Amigo Spot that serves some of the best tamales in town, super sizzling high-rise fajitas, and happy hour specials. The food comes with little mexican flags on it. You arrive at the Amigo Spot from outside across a drawbridge.

It's a mid-60's motel maintained perfectly. I find it bizarre that people coming to Tiki Oasis complain that the King's Inn is an "old place" with "strange headboards" on the beds but they'll "stay there anyway." ?!?!?!?!?

They dress up someone in a Waffle King costume on weekends who walks around waving at his subjects.

The heck with the St. Louis Arch, THIS should be a national treasure.

I know I have high standards when it comes to food & I am not trying to start anything
with Cammo, but none of the food in the "Hotel Circle" area is good, some is just OK
(we are talking on par with Dennys)

your best bet is to head to "Old Town" (just 1.5 miles away) for good eats.

Albie's Beef Inn (on Hotel Circle) is not just good, it's Mid-Century / Rat Pack / Old-School / Lounge Culture AWESOME !!

So there.
