1. Specific drinks such as mai-tais, lapulapus, scorpions,Singapore Sling, fogcutter etc...
2. Decor that is fake-polynesian and from a specific time period (Mid century) Possibly made by WITCO or Oceanic Arts, or directly inspired by those companies.
3. Music known as "exotica", and specifically, Martin Denny, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman, Chaino, etc.. AND hawaiian music, specifically, hawaiian hapa haole music based on jazz, with sophisticated arrangements, lush steel guitar, etc..or music directly inspired by those sources.
