THE TROPICS - KANSAS CITY, MO 
IS OUR JUNE T-SHIRT DESIGN

Located in the heart of downtown Kansas City, on the 3rd floor mezzanine of the historic Hotel Phillips, The Tropics was a “pre-tiki” tropical lounge that opened in the early 1940s. The lounge was famous for an hourly tropical storm. The hotel's history flyer described it this way, “…The sound of thunder was piped in and the lights fluttered and went out. A mechanical hula girl would emerge from behind the bar and dance in a grass skirt while it rained behind the bar…”
 
A time machine would come in handy right about now; I would have loved to experience the storm along with a Rum Manhattan for a steep .50 cents, or a Polynesian Planters for .75 cents, while enjoying the live music of Al Vierra's Hawaiian's.
We are unable to determine when The Tropics closed in the 60s, but you can keep The Tropics memory alive with this month's t-shirts.  

This is available for Pre-Order until May 31st  and will be produced and shipped by mid June.

Jen B. - Subscription Club Member - The Makai Room - One of my favorites so far! This is my 5th purchase from Tiki Bar T-shirt Club and by far my favorite. Getting a little note about the history of the location is the icing on the cake. I only wish I could take time machine back to this place in its heyday. The reproduction of the art is just perfect. Love it!  

Woody of WoodyMillerArt.com - Cannibal Cocktail Lounge - Great design, love this shirt!

Kurt B. - Subscription Club Member - I love the Tiki Bar T-shirt Club. It's always great to get a T-shirt in the mail from an old-school defunct tiki bar. Many of these closed spots are from the middle of the country so they haven't gotten the attention that larger tiki temples have received. It comes with a brief history of the spot. Oh and the tees are super comfortable.

Christopher S. - Waikiki Room -  Not only does the shirt have a great design and look great but is so comfortable too. The material that's used is very comfortable and soft. I love this shirt. It's my first one but will not be my last!!

Jane S. - The Outrigger - I can't say enough good things, but I will try...the t-shirts are a bargain with their unique design and quality of seams and fabric. It's also really fun to see what design is coming next. It's Christmas every month!

Michael J. - Subscription Club Member - Great design, great fit. Already a regular in my closet
