Tiki Bar Revival

It really kicked off in the '40s and '50s however, with American and Australian soldiers returning home from WWII South Pacific campaign against the Japanese. Many of them served in the South Pacific, and were keen to recreate back home the exotic isles they'd witnessed. After the gloom of the war years, it was time to party basically.

This spirit is reflected in the glorious automotive styling of that era too. So at the same time these guys were creating tiki bars and what not, the same generation of people were souping up old cars to make them more exciting. I guess some of it could also have come from the surf and hot rod music fusion in the early 60's too. Surfers were right into Hawaii because of the big waves, and 'Woodies' were the best surf wagons. The music of The Beach Boys and Jan and Dean would have had a fair bit of influence on the cultural crossover as well.

Tiki Culture revival has mixed and overlapped with the Rockabilly, Surf, Hot Rod, and Burlesque revival movements.

This is generally accepted as a modern phenomenon and it makes sense that mid century modern revival cultures connect and overlap because they accent and enhance each other and also we have all the elements of nostalgia in common now which are bringing us together.

Building a Tiki Bar at home, or near the pool is a fun way to escape the daily grind and quickly retreat to your own exotic happy place, or it can give a fun theme to your party.
