I would like to first say hello . We are new to Tiki Central. Thanks for having us.

And now I would like to introduce my home Tiki bar. The Lucky Star Tiki Bar. (Follow us on twitter @lstartikibar)

I built this bar over the summer and it is not quit done but we got it to a point where we could use it on most nights. The back bar and behind the bar will be built in the spring. Anyway here is a little history.

My family has always been into or even in aviation. We are all pilots of one kind or another. My grandfather designed aircraft for Lockheed. We have always loved the old WWII war birds of the South Pacific. See where the tiki influences might come from? After we decided to build a tiki bar in our new home it was clear it was to be a WWII South Pacific Pilots Tiki bar. So we started building. Now my grandfather worked on the wing design for an airplane called the PV-1 Ventura or Vega Ventura. In Latin this is roughly translated to Lucky Star. Bam! we had a bar name. The Lucky Star Tiki Bar. It is an outdoor bar that is 3/4 covered and weather proof. It will be a full wet bar with 6 beer taps on the back wall with keg storage and cooling on the inside of the house. Again still in progress but I thought I would share my tiki madness with you all. Enjoy.

Will

the walls go up



three weeks later. Also note in the this photo the 500lbs bomb that is now a fire feature.



The artwork. This is a 3D model my uncle did of a Vega Ventura PV-1 with costume logo



this was taken last night. The photo wall will have photos of our friends and loved ones that have flown west.



I will post more as we take them.

Thanks for looking

Will

I just flew in on that PBY and I like what I'm seeing. It amuses me that having a 500lb bomb suspended over your tiki bar is not considered anything unusual - only in our wonderful world of tikiness.

Love your work.

Ditto MaukaHale and Vampiress. I love the blue lit portholes. And yes, the bomb is the bomb. Looks great, look forward to seeing more photos!

Welcome to TC Will! Where are you located? You have found the right place. Everyone here shares your passion for tiki.

I am very jealous of your big beautiful tikis. I'm guessing you're on the West Coast. I'm from NJ and I'd have to drive a LONG way from home for that kind of tiki goodness.

Keep posting pics as your bar progresses.

Thanks everybody for the great comments. You guys are very encouraging. We are having the best time ever getting in touch with our inner tiki's. It's been so much fun mixing our passion for aviation and tiki goodness. Perfect match I say.

We are on the west cost about 40 miles south of San Francisco, and just across the SF Bay from the First Trader Vic's. The two tikis are from Hawaii. We found them on line. Don't have the info handy right now but I will post it if you like.

On the yellow bomb we are going to stencil "Come in and get bombed" Oh it keeps going. I will keep adding pictures here. But also follow the bar on twitter @Lstartikibar

Thanks again totally feeling the tiki love

Will

Yup that is the tail section to a 500lb bomb. I rigged a fire ring and propane take to it. Quite the conversation starter. The yellow one is an old practice bomb, or something like that.

God, there are so many leads here I don't where to start -

Went over to Will's last night and got bombed.

That party at the Lone Start Tiki Bar was a real blast....etc....etc

Love it!
