This was areally cool bar to go see, the decor although not overly tiki was good. When we were there it was fairly empty and no one in Porto who we thought might have been in to the scene really knew about it (eg Tattoo, Vintage stores).
I must say the Cocktails although served in cool mugs with dry ice and all the trimmings weren't great so I stuck to beer .
Still worth checking out if youre in that neck or the woods.

The mugs come from a bar in Spain, I asked if we could buy some, but they unfortunately wouldn't sell.
Didn't find any other tiki stuff, although there was a Bar in Sagres that makes the best Caipirinha's which is worth checkin out.

Nice find!!
I was just extolling the virtues of Lisbon to the wife.....but it looks like a trip to Porto has to be on the cards!

The look is very much like that of the classic Barcelona Tiki bars - did you get any photos of the inside?

Great to see that you're posting on Tiki Central, by the way!

Looks nice, Cheeky Tiki! I had no idea there was any tiki in Portugal. I did only Lisbon and its partytown neighbor just north, Caiscais, and it's definitely a great bar scene. (Gorgeous discos and such on the cliffs, with the doors wide open and outdoor patios, overlooking the moonlight on the ocean. Magic.)

But where the heck is Porto?! And why were you there? I'm guessing not en route to make a holy pilgrimage to Fatima...

(Looking forward to meeting you in London and having those killer Mai Tai's - yummy )

Here's some pictures my brother took while visiting his sister in law who's living in Porto.
He tried to buy me some mugs or menu but got the same result as cheeky.

After having dragged my own family and our friends trough all of Porto, we found the place closed. A fresh newspaper at the doormat suggested that it was still in operation, but I had no patience left to go on. Some excusing was in order and the kids had to be heavily bribed, but at least I got some pictures of the facade. IŽll be back, better prepared.
This is the front of the marquee.

The tiki at the entrance is playing the maracas.

There are no truths outside the Gates of Eden

More of the decor from the outside.

I read somewhere that maracas come from Polynesia. Others say Morocco or Brazil.

Zeta, do you know if it is closed, but still exists? It was supposedly a real nice one...

I would like to say something about this:

What this wonderful tile Tiki is holding is actually a Maori war club,
the same type than this famous O.A.-carved giant:


Maori war clubs came in a variety of forms and shapes. Here is another type,
also from O.A., which graced many famous Tiki temples, and is still available at their warehouse:




To help us differentiate the various war club types, here is a handy chart:


Now we can see that our Hiva Oa guardian is holding a KOTIATE, much like this chieftain:


Here is a nice photo and description of a kotiate:


Another type of regalia weapon was the MERE:



This meeting house carving is holding one,


and a carving of this type probably inspired the Hawaiian Inn logo Tiki,


..which at some point had its typical Maori tongue mistakenly connected to the hand weapon

...and thus became known as the paddle sucker. The END

...and one more thing: Here is the Hawaiian Inn logo Tiki as swizzle stick, with the correct short club in hand.

No longer exists... Nada.

The seafood restaurant next door was doing great so they bought the place... This happened almost two years ago.
