Hey, I just joined so wanted to go ahead and share my tiki bar with everyone. It was difficult with my phone to get a good pic without it being too dark, too bright or too blurry but hopefully you get the idea. Bottles are in the top pull down and mixers in the cabinet below. It suits my needs perfectly.

True, it's not rattan or bamboo or typical of what is to be expected of a tiki bar but mid century and tiki go hand in hand in my book so it works for me Of course I can't get behind it to mix and serve up drinks but it's great for storage and display.

Here's a peak inside:

Mikehooker, you say it's a tiki bar, in your mind it's a tiki bar, ipso facto it's a tiki bar. I've consulted the great God Ku and he says it's a tiki bar. End of story.

And might I say what a find piece of mid-century re-purposing that you've accomplished my man. I like the wall clock. Is that something you made?

Aloha Jim!

THIV, the clock is a piece we picked up a few years back at an estate sale. The sails are made of gravel. It's likely a Turner Wall Accessory although there is no marking. Just seems to fit with the color scheme and style of other Turner pieces from that era. Here's a better look at it:

Nice! Like the Tiki-ware and the Rums don't look too shabby either! I'm partial to the Coruba.
