THE ALOHA RESTAURANT - ROCHESTER, NY IS OUR T-SHIRT FOR AUGUST
The Aloha restaurant was a popular Polynesian restaurant in Rochester NY that opened in 1963 by Chwan Sheu and his sister Yu Tey Chi. Guests fondly remember the arched bridge over a lagoon and waterfall, the heavy wood doors with carved handles, palm trees, fountains, the murals of volcanoes and a bar designed to resemble the stern of a ship with island scenes visible through the windows.
In addition to the Polynesian decor, Sheu provided entertainers that sang songs like “Tiny Bubbles” to round out the island atmosphere. A variety of exotic tropical tiki drinks like the Mai Tai, the Zombie and the Scorpion Bowl were well known in the area but like most tiki cocktails, these recipes were strictly guarded secrets.
Mr. Sheu, was well respected for helping hundreds of Chinese immigrants build a new life in the states with several of his employees going on to open their own restaurants. The Aloha restaurant expanded to include the Aloha Motel and two more restaurants before the original closed in 1988.
This T-Shirt is available for Pre-Order until July 31st, and will be produced and shipped mid August.

I really love the vintage look of the Tiki Bar T-shirts I get every month. I ordered the vintage coasters for my tiki bar and the quality of the images are surprisingly good. Bravo! Also, I thought I was missing part of an order (found it hiding behind a planter) and got a quick response even though it was my mistake and I was treated with kindness. So appreciated. Love the different tiki bars and I want send in a suggestion for one that was in my town when I was a kid. Great job!

You would not be reading this if you did not like the graphic, so I want to talk about the quality of the shirt, it is a very high quality and soft t shirt, washes well, and is just a joy to wear, I am looking forward to ordering more shirts from her

Tiki Time Machine - Until my tiki time machine is perfected these shirts are the next best thing to being at these iconic places. They transport you to iconic places in style and comfort. Now if you could only figure out a way to ship me a mai tai with each order it would be perfect!

Awesome Shirt! Not only does the shirt have an awesome, vintage Tiki Bar design, but it is a soft, comfortable shirt. It is not the stiff, scratchy kind so often sold.

I was very happy to find the Tiki bar T shirt club from the Zen Tiki Lounge. I decided to give them a try before subscribing. I am absolutely thrilled with this shirt. So thrilled that I subscribed for 6 months while still wearing the shirt. These will definitely get some mileage during this year's Hukilau. And I will tell everyone where to get them

These shirts are a joy. Every month brings something that is worth getting. The stories are almost as good as the shirts.

Great fitting shirt with quality art. I enjoyed the included history "fact sheet" of the Tiki Bar that is illustrated on the shirt!
Christopher S. - The Tropics
The shirt looks fantastic. Has very comfortable material and fits great.
Wayne S. - The Tropics
Quality of shirt and printing is always great! And the company is great to work with! Highly recommend! Thanks tiki of the month club!!
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
