Great archeology. Great thread.

Happy I can say that I've been to one of the oldest, and that I live close by. Long live the Mai Kai.

Now that the Bahooka has closed, I'm curious what the oldest original existing tiki restaurant is?




Would Trader Vics, aka Hinky Dinks qualify?



Opened in 1934, subsequently renamed Trader Vics and, yes, it has expanded, so while the physical location no longer exists the chain does. Indeed, it is doubtful that a 1934 restaurant could satisfy current building codes, but the original location is not a Trader Vics.

That's definitely one of the earliest, but that location no longer exists.

Yes, the requirements should be:

Same location in classic bamboo/rattan Polynesian style decor.



So Hinky Dink's is out.
