A goal of mine is to make the bar as immersive as possible and hide the fact that it's located in the basement. As this picture shows, we have a plain metal door to the garage. The plan is to cover parts of it with tapa cloth.



After being painted and awaiting a new look.

I like what you've done and I'm really impressed with your fake window.

Thanks MaukaHale! Glad you like the window.

Here's where I hung some cloth behind a beaded curtain to hide the back of the basement. I'm going to place a light in that corner soon.



And here's more pics from around my secret outpost:

From a fellow Polynesian hotel and tiki fan, and New Englander (Maine)...GREAT JOB! Like everyone else, I love that window! But so many nice features...

Thanks guys and nice to see more fellow New Englanders on here. I don't enjoy the winters anymore and there's nothing like a tiki escape when a blizzard is going on just outside. Hopefully someday I'll live in a warmer climate for the winter, but the bar helps out a lot.

The Polynesian is such a great place with many great memories. I'm happy with all of the recent renovations too. I'll miss the old waterfall, but I do find myself hanging out in the lobby more late night while enjoying some drinks.

Made some more progress on the entrance. I might make more improvements to the door in the future, but this will do for now. The most recent project is the creation of a bamboo shade for the light bulb above the door.

Greetings everyone,

Well more progress has been made as I created my very first light shade that hangs at the entrance to the bar. I decided to add bamboo to the ceiling surrounding the light so that's the latest project. I'll post more updates soon!
