Hope that this is the proper thread. I have many double old fashions that I serve my Mai Tai’s in. Here are just a few -I’d like to see what you have. Like mug collecting , collecting bar ware quickly escalates. I had to build a cabinet to house mine and of course I quickly outgrew it.
Cheers

Trader Vic’s 80th anniversary and Billy’s on the Beach


Frankie’s, Rare Don the Beachcomber, International Tiki Marketplace,
Hong Kong Inn, Ventura,Ca.


Misc. and a Venticki


Here’ the cabinet I made-almost all from Scraps Just a bunch of junk collecting dust in my shed.The hardware is all cast-offs



Top and door open independently.



Hardware. Hinges are aluminium but plenty strong for this application.





I bought some mechanic’s tool box matting which keeps the glassware from sliding about when I roll the cabinet around my bar.



I needed a tight square fit to help keep the dust out.


Top works well as a staging area when I’m working at a crowded bartop.





Tanks to TikiSkip for the idea on posting The Mai Tai Glass

Nice Jon, I have lotsa Tony’s-never seen the blue one though.
How many of the Don the Beachcombers (4th one down on the left) you got? I only have one so I usually don’t use it for my 3rd or 4th drink.

My "collection", if you can call it that, consists of these 3 glasses, plus a set of the ubiquitous Trader Vic glasses. I'd love to have a few more, but just don't run into them all that often in the wild.

I really love mai tai glasses! I only have a few, a pair from the ITMP thanks to my friend David and Trader Vic ones from when I went to Emeryville. Sadly, I haven't had a mai tai in a while, something I need to rectify soon. Thanks for the inspiration....

Off to a great start nui 'umi 'umi.

When taking pictures of these glasses you need to put the White paper in them so we can see the cool graphics.
Or of the cool graphics are white other color.
Heck even a drink!

One more thing that would be good is a post of the guy who makes these glasses custom for peoples home bar.
These a guy like that here if I remember correctly.

And hey if ya got some to sell post them too.

I will post some shots of mine.
Already have seen many I did not know of.

Your cabinet is cool nui 'umi 'umi, rust on hinges and all metal may look good.

Hey here are some of my glasses to add.
Sorry it took so long.

The Rincon Room is the coolest, it is a home bar.





Hukilau Glasses are great as well these are glasses you get at the Hukilau event and they have a new design each year.
