I suppose if the barrel mug had Jack Daniels on it, there could be an argument that it doesn't belong behind a "tiki" bar.

I happen to like barrel mugs. Wish I had more than just a couple simple ones. I think they express something very important in the tiki culture... RUM! At least, that's what I feel when I see one!

Also, I feel they add a nautical touch and that's very much something I see in "tiki" decor as well. Floats, nets, ropes, fish traps, shells etc...

Yup, barrels work.

Barrels are awesome, but should never have handles. Just my opinion.

I agree with the NO HANDLES opinion as a purest idea but as Mrs. 8FT told me: "Those of us who have small hands can't hold the barrel mugs and coconut mugs." I guess that's true enough so it's either use 2 hands or leave it on the table and use a really long straw!

I really bumped this thread to post pics of a Barrel mug we have and I don't see it discussed on TC anywhere or on Ooga Mooga or in Tiki Quest. We love it though because it is from the Kona Kai!!!!!!!! Just like ol' 8FT.
Here's a couple of shots.

Now that is a Barrel Mug that I have never seen before! Collecting for about nine years now so not really a rookie. This IS a perfect example of why Barrel Mugs deserve and belong behind Tiki bars!! Great piece 8FT Tiki!! Thanks for posting that one! TabooDan
