We are just getting started in here. Our big move was in March of this year and then Hukilau was coming so we couldn't dedicate any time to it at all.

We have so much energy and passion about it since Hukilau so we'll be sure to share the progression.

What a great bar!
The great part about having your own tiki bar, which I didn’t know until I built my own was, it pays for itself in all the money you save from going out to drink (not to mention the incredible fun) (and not to mention the driving while under tiki libations you avoid).
Have Fun!

How adorable! So cozy!

Question, at Hukilau in the ballroom there were some great dark paintings, of very moody tikis. Who were those? Is that what is on your wall behind the bar, left?

Thx, Inky

Inky,

The paintings were brought by Wayne Coombs, Mr. Mai Tiki himself, to Hukilau. Her name is Jacklyn LaFlamme. You could email him from the Mai Tiki website and let him know you want more information.

Behind the bar is a velvet painting we bought while cocktailed for way too much money on ebay. Rule #1 in our house - no ebaying while drinking. We still love it.

Actually, the paintings at Hukilau on the wall over by the back bar were painted by Wayne himself. He had never painted before and was suprised he could! They were pretty popular for his first outings and had some interested in buying them.

How did you guys find the time to do this and organize the Hukilau? I feel like a slug.

We should have the pool turned from it's current green clumpy color with frogs, to a nice clear blue in a week or so, and we'll plan a little soiree then. If get my latest "tiki" that BK turned me onto, it'll really be time to celebrate! (fingers crossed)

Great set-up, you two! Congrats on creating your own cozy tiki environment. And with a pool to boot... you must have quite the stylish rat pack crib. I'm jealous.

Could you post a straight-on picture of the bar? I'd love to see the detail of what the actual front looks like.
