Hi everyone, Just wanted to introduce myself to you all. My wife and I live in Brisbane Australia and have our own Islander style bar called the Wawahine Lounge in our back shed.
We are both musicians and perform in our band playing Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba songs from the 60s to present. We travel to Bali often and also love mid century modern designs.
I look froward to reading all the posts and delving into this marvellous world of Tiki.
Welcome Wawahine, we need more Queenslander tiki culture. We're in Hervey Bay so if I stand on my roof I could probably see you in Brisbane. That's me waving now.

Good afternoon everyone from sunny Columbus, Ohio, home of the sadly-lost, but beloved Kahiki. I finally got around to signing up on Tiki Central after many years of browsing the boards. Glad to be on-board. Mid-west tiki culture is really growing....proof that you don't need to be near the Pacific to enjoy the Polynesian Pop revivial!

Hi there, my name is Gabe, I'm selling some vintage rattan furniture, so wanted to post it here, as it seems like there would be folks who would be interested. Thanks!

Long time lurker, first post- and after my first Tiki Oasis this year, it's high time I did.
It was a love of vinyl that brought me to this community, but I've always been an unconscious tiki-phile,
being born & bred in the burbs of Los Angeles in the early 1970s.
Two summers ago, I became interested in Tiki drinks - which led me to seek and/or create some unusual drink ingredients (falernum, pimento dram, spiced syrups, Fassionola, Okolehao)...
And more recently, I'm researching pre-Prohibition cocktails (1803-1919) and thus have been seeking a new set of ingredients<br> (Old Tom gin, Creme Violette, Boker's bitters, Creme Yvette, Amer Picon, Abbott's bitters, genever from Holland, absinthe from Europe, amaro from Italy, weird fruit brandies etc.).
I'm reading "the classics" and absorbing "vintage mixology" from many sources e.g. The bum, Victor Bergeron, David Wondrich.
I'm building a liquor cabinet for “COCKTAILIAN” research and experimentation.
more soon... see you at Cap City Tiki Crawl this weekend.
