We thought there should be a thread for home bars that are not on TC for whatever reason.

If you find one, add some links and pics to this thread...

We were going to start with one that used to be on TC, The largest home Tiki bar allowed by law aka TikiMaxon's place aka Castaway Cove, but thanks to Bloody Good it's back on TC again.

We're still hoping someone who knows Basement Kahuna can get him to bring the Kon Tiki Paradise Room back to the site.

Here's one we just discovered the other night:



The Monkey Hut

(Like TikiMaxon's, it's also a home bar in Portland, OR. Are we picking up a theme here? Something going on in Oregon that makes people disappear off TC?)

We think it's called The Monkey Hut In Exile now (possibly a second location or incarnation?), and it looks pretty sweet. Critki's Humuhumu broadcast live there last July, and watching these clips entertained us greatly from our position with a couple of Fog Cutters at the Don the Beachcomber table in the Treasure Island Room. The owners seem like really nice people that we could have all kinds of great discussions with about exotic libations ... they've done a lot of creative stuff in their bar, too, as shown in those clips on the link, which makes us wonder why they're not on TC.

But wait, they were! Just not the bar ... it's the creation of longtime TC member
Melintur, who hasn't been around these parts since 2012, several months before the Mayan calendar ran out. But in ten years of activity here, the home bar was never mentioned. It's a pretty great looking place! He does run a tiki-related site worth visiting: http://www.coloneltiki.com/

The Monkey Hut was featured in the inflight mag for Hawaiian Airlines back in Aug 2016, in a good article about "Basement Bora Boras" (not to be confused with Bora Boris, who probably should not be randomly appearing in your basement).


A few other random pics:

Was the Monkey Hut the home bar of the Munktiki folks? If so, I think it's gone. The home was put up for sale in 2017 and they relocated to Astoria. I could have all that wrong, as I'm not a PNW resident.

I, too, wish there were more home bars represented here, or at least on Critiki. Either a lot of people prefer anonymity or they just can't be bothered.
