Tiki History

Tiki Culture is a 20th-century theme used in Polynesian-style restaurants and clubs originally in the United States and then, to a lesser degree, around the world. Although inspired in part by Tiki carvings and mythology, the connection is loose and stylized, being an American form and not a Polynesian fine art form. When you think TIKI, calypso music, tiki hut’s, grass skirts, coconut’s, pineapple’s. mai-tai's and pina colada’s come to mind!
