Tiki came over on the waves of the pacific and landed in Europe in the
sixties, a full decade after itís popularity boomed in the United States.
Restaurants and bars popped up with a Polynesian theme, with great
attention to detail going into the menu, the exotic drinks, and even
in the naming of the establishment.|
This is due in part to the Post-Tiki wave that has swept through
America over the past ten years and has finally come to Europe.
Another great influence are the publications
Until recently, many of the European Tiki locations have not been documented. The Tiki Road Trip by James Teitelbaum and the City in Space guides www.cityinspace.com have some locations listed, but not all. We would like to change this, and we need your help in the first phase of the project, to use this site as a European tiki bar and restaurant guide. In a later second phase, when all of the locations are documented, we will turn this site into a book for all the tikiphiles out there!
For this huge undertaking we will need any information and hints that you can give us. You will automatically be listed as a Co-author and as thanks, will be given a free copy of the book.
What we are looking for:
What we are NOT looking for:Anyone can decorate using a plastic lei and cheap bamboo and call it a tiki bar, so please use your discretion upon submitting your location to this website. If they serve caipirinias and call them exotic drinks, chances are they shouldnít appear in this book.
Submitting your information:There is now a new upload feature available.
Please review always first the existing locations and if you don't find a tiki place that you know, submit it to us.
We have three tiki icons below with three names to submit general information to.
