Evening all (well it's evening in the UK anyway).
New to the forum so just saying hello.
Just starting to collect tikis and have begun the job of redesigning the decor in the house and garden a bit.




Hi Dax,

I'm Joe, and I live in the UK as well...

You can see my home bar by searching Moku Hei Hei, maybe some inspiration on there for you.

Cheers,
Joe.

Aloha and Mahalo everyone. I've been on here since last year under a different name, but realized there was another user who had been a part of this "Polypop" thing for a very long time under a very similar handle, so I've re-registered using my Tonga Hut Grog Log name.

In any case I wanted to officially say hi to everyone and thank all of you old schoolers for all the inspiration and knowledge I've gotten out of these forums. I've already met some great people out in the real world in this scene and hope to meet more of you.

I plan to create a posting for my home bar/lounge "The Polynesian Guard" that I have been working on since last summer, I just have to organize all of my before pics and then take some good shots of where it is now.

--- Myles

Aloha all,

My name is Bryce, and I've been a lurker of Tiki Central for years and years - finally decided to come join in the conversation. Wife and I just bought a new home with the perfect finished basement to convert to my own little lounge - and I'm excited! Finally a place to display all those strange artifacts I've been collecting in storage!

I'm a long time Polynesian pop-culture fan and onetime bartender that tried to advocate proper mixology. I also am co-host and producer of the show "Taverncast" (www.taverncast.com) which is riddled with plenty of Tiki / fifties pop-culture / retro goodness - centered around good drinks and off-the-wall topics. Check it out if you're looking for something to pass your drive-time with.

Look forward to chatting with you guys. Hope you're all having a great summer of '13.

Welcome! Going to check it out now, and really looking forward to seeing your buildout in the forum. Just a little FYI, apparently you guys let taverncaststore.com lapse, because it's some random Japanese spam site now.

ALOHA!

Howdy from Ft Myers Florida. I found this site while looking for Lemon Hart 151. I can't wait to delve deep in to the knowledge here.

Hello Tiki Central!

Just discovered the website and fell in love! I've always had an affinity for Atomic-Age Living, Tiki culture, Martin Denny, and rum. I am an ordained minister AND bartender at the swanky 21C Hotel in Bentonville, AR. Love the vibe of the site and I look forward to contributing!

Aloha everyone! Glad to be here and have been meaning to get on board for a while! My friends and I had a BLAST at Ohana - Luau at the Lake (Lake George, NY) this past weekend!

Aloha to you, Hale Tiki! Thanks for the greetings! The hotel is a museum of contemporary artists from the 21st Century (hence the name of the hotel). There is art everywhere-in the galleries (of course), throughout the bar lounge and restaurant, in the rooms, everywhere! It's quite unique and tons of fun! No, that photo is not me but another mondo talented bartender I work with. I just joined the team about 6 weeks ago and am feverishly working on a rum cocktail to add to the specialty drink menu as, alas, there is nary a one to be found on it!

Hello, been viewing threads occasionally and finally decided it was time to sign up. I live in New England.... far, far away from most tiki, and none of my friends or family are into it so I'm really happy about sites like this, Ooga Mooga and others that are out there. Started collecting mugs a couple years ago and now I'm hooked and looking forward to learning more about tiki culture.

I have been regular lurker for quite some time....decided to finally sign up! I have lived at the beach most of my life so I am an island girl. My love of tiki started when I was a child in the 60s and my grandparents (who travelled extensively) would come home with tiki mugs and swizzle sticks from all of the tropical destinations. They had them on display on shelfs around the ceiling in their basement and I loved to look at them.

So flash forward and here I am. Looking forward to getting to meet some of you in the future! Anyone in NE Florida give me a shout
