emspace,

That photo is remarkable. Is that a postcard?

I'll try to post pictures of the matchbook soon.

That, dear Sabu, is a small resize of a scan of an 8 x 12 print, taken from a transparency in the City of Edmonton Archives. I wish like hell I could find a postcard. Moreover, there are swizzlesticks out there somewhere featuring the "blockhead Tiki" mascot seen on the menus. Glad you enjoyed it, it is a sweet photo, and it was a sweet restaurant. Drinks were served in Tiki mugs, the walls and ceiling were thick with Tiki as you have seen - a classic place at 53 degrees N. latitude, where Tiki was most desperately needed!

aloha,
em.

I promise to get something up soon. I'm gonna take my camera and try to get some photos. My biggest problem is my camera is not digital. Oh yeah, and I'm not really motivated to go back real soon...



I can get access to a digital camera if we wanted to do a Calgary meet-up! We can show off both the minimalist wonder and our mugs (as in, our faces, since Bamboo doesn't have any mugs...) in one shot

You forgot to mention the House, Trance and Urban music that they play there too... Brr...

Hey Enchanted,

Sounds good, we should meet up at Bamboo. I was there about 2 months ago and took some photos to post, but alas, I loaded the film incorrectly...god I suck.

Anyway, the manager is a friend of one of my friends, so I was shown the place even though it was closed. He was kind enough to answer my questions and let me ake photos. He may even be open to suggestions. My friend told me that they do have tiki mugs there, however in what kind of capacity, i have no idea...

That's right, as moderator/goddess you have the power to mess with mere mortal's posts, don't you? As you see fit, TW.

Wow! Thank you for restoring those photos, Sweet Daddy T! I wish I was born about 30 years earlier. Actually, I wish this place stayed open about 30 years later. Where was that? That must be Rice Howard Way, going by the address. I might as well add these photos to this thread. Sorry about the 2nd, out-of-focus pic.

Sweet Daddy Tiki,

It is great to see all of the old Beachcomber photos back in this post, thanks for that.

I just picked up the drink menu from The Beachcomber in Edmonton.



Here is the front of the menu.


Here are a couple of close ups from the drink menu. Great illustrations.





I also have this cocktail pick from The Beachcomber.
