As it happens, I LOVE tiki.

So ... what exactly IS Tiki? Polinesian decor?
Don't shoot me. I really don't know.

I think the bar will be great, and you can tiki it up with accessories. Like grass cloth on the walls behind it, or a thatched roof over it. Or just a shitload of rum drinks in themed glassware on top of it.

Try Tanduay rum from the Philippines. It might not be as good as some Caribbean rums, but it's a great conversation starter about sugar barons in the South Pacific.

Paola, "Tiki" is a sort of Americanized (some would say Disney-fied) mixture of assorted Pacific cultures. It is NOT authentic Polynesian and it is not meant to be.

I am very alive and operating semi-covertly in the islands. A lot has changed since the turbo-blogging days of 2004, but I'm hoping to get some great Joke material whilst I lurk in the wings and avoid Dengue fever.

I suppose you could replace the rosetta things with hibiscus flowers but I think gussying up its surroundings sounds like a better idea. It's a nice piece as is and could work as is in a Tiki setting.
My word verification is puise. Which makes me think of a pouilly fuise. Even though I have no clue what that is. Or if I'm spelling it properly.
