Classic San Diego Tiki -

How many of theses classic San Diego tiki joints do you know? Most are now just memories, but establishments with checkmarks (✔) are currently in business. San Diego may not be the birthplace of tiki, but with its transient wartime Navy population and proximity to Tijuana, it became an incubator for the mid-century Polynesian craze… (1931-2011) The Aloha Cafe, Tijuana’s first pre-tiki bar, was sporadically located on Avenida Revolución (then known as Main Street by Americanos) — for eighty years! The bar was first opened as The Aloha Cafe during Prohibition in 1931 by Fernando ‘Frank’ Blanco Cota. Cota regularly advertised the liquor and dancing of his place to San Diegans, beckoning them to experience the racy Honolulu Trio and their ‘latest hula thrills.’

What Is Tiki

Well, it’s pretty simple. It’s all about living the good life, the way my grandfathers might have when they came back from the Pacific after the war; listening to the sounds of Exotica music and waves crashing on an island shore while sipping an exotic cocktail under a palm tree, and taking it nice and easy, even if you’re a thousand miles away from the nearest tropical island.

An eclectic, tropical mish-mash may appear to clash with the clean lines of an Eichler or other mid-century modern home, but the two styles have more in common than you might think. In settings like this, a tiki bar is almost always at the heart of home dècor. We recently talked with several tikiphiles who live modern. All had been smitten by the tropical craze as children, through visits with their parents to the tiki palaces of yore. While their modern home tiki bars today provide an active way to show off their collection of tiki memorabilia, more importantly they create a familiar and fun common area at home. Archive.
