Hi everybody!

My name is Michael. I have been a fan of Tiki for a long time, but only recently has it become a real hobby for me. Once I realized that tiki was an art aesthetic that my wife enjoyed as well and that a trip to the local tiki bars was just as much an escape for her as it is for me, those were the green lights I needed to go and pursue all of this to my usual obsessive degree. As for everything else in my life, I am basically your friendly neighborhood nerd. I am a lifelong Trekkie and currently work in my spare time as a designer for the Star Trek Collectible Card Game over at
trekcc.org (blatant plug). And equal to my obsession with Star Trek, I am also a complete Disnerd. My wife and I even got married at Walt Disney World. I also love tabletop gaming, Doctor Who, and sci-fi in general. Thanks for the welcome here and mahalo!

Hi guys, I've been lurking for a while and thought I would finally sign up! I've recently moved back to Sydney, Australia after living in LA for a while and it's proving quite hard to be back home with little access to any good tiki bars. Just means I'll have to visit friends back in SoCal soon!

Hey Mike, welcome to TC! See if you can reach out to Koop Kooper in Sydney. He has been one of the key publicists of tiki and mid-century modern in that part of the country, and he publishes a very fine weekly podcast with a lot of great music and tiki and MCM news items. Not only can you learn about the state of the tiki and mid-century modern scene in and around Sydney and the world, but you could also find yourself inspired to stock up on things you need to make your own drinks at home. Not the same as being at a L.A. tiki bar, but at least you'll enjoy one aspect of it in your home. And your friends will be impressed!

Cheers, mate!

Hello all!



hello!
there were some people coming up from Baltimore today to hit up the Yachtsman, but they never updated to say when they would be getting to the bar.
There aren't a lot of tiki options in Philly, other than the Yachtsman and Vietnam, but most places that serve craft cocktails and have Orgeat syrupt can make you a passable mai-tai.

I like those tikis, Chris - they have lots of personality!

I arrived at Tiki Central while searching for historical info about the hotels here in Hilo, HI.

While I don't have any actual tiki background, I am tickled by retro stuff and whimsical tiki themes, and love fruity drinks. I made my first Mai Tai last night, and I have an old reception desk which I'm now considering giving the Tiki Bar treatment to brighten up a dark corner of the living room.
