keeping with the theme but sort of left field, got this this weekend, it was in a Navy bar in the pacific during WWII is 20+ feet long by 3 feet wide and painted on what feels like a roll of wall paper......hope to have it up in my tiki hut soon!!

this is center mass....


this is in the far right corner, much like old nautical maps with a Cherub blowing the trade winds.....

Just came across this place in Illinois. Looks like a basement bar.



That was built or at least last decorated in the late '60s...



Dig the fake jungle!

greetings once again !!! this weekend there was an estate sale in lincolnwood illinois - It too featured a vintage tiki basement theme. I managed to get some pics as well as lift a few off their listing page. Lincolnwood has always been a hot bed of tiki back in the day. the famous hoe king lo was just blocks from this location - they used to serve monogramed drinks out of bumatay mugs there. The basement was big but only one of the rooms was tiki - the bigger room held a pool table and some basic rumpus room stuff. two interesting things about this place - the corner had a huge working fountain hand made by the owners with lights and all. The bar itself was built over a player piano that sat nested under and behind the bar with the bar top built over it. So on with the tour !!!




when you hit the bottom of the stairs you turn left through these beads into the room-

at the bottom of the stairs is a cool display of plastic fish and a window well turned into a fake aquarium





walking in the room you face the bar - seating area to your left.




some highlights of the room plus the corner fountain area









this cool pair of old asian statuary was located in the yard.












i had to include this - giant hand painted mural (not wall paper) in the living room - like you are looking over a balcony down to the city of venice or something.







thats all for now - see you at the next sale, hopefully with another vintage tiki bar in it.

Without seeing close up details, from here I'm guessing Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong?

There's going to be so much more - i drive through these neighborhoods and think "which one of you has the witco trove, waiting to be discovered ?" I know it's there - the odds are good . But where ? And when ?

Thanks Tipsy..I F'in love this stuff. I KNOW you will find more. A good amount of original owners homes are appearing up here...more traditional Rec/Rumpus rooms...cool nevertheless.
