TIKI BOB'S - SAN FRANCISCO, CA IS OUR TIKI BAR T-SHIRT FOR FEBRUARY
The legendary San Francisco Tiki Bob’s opened in 1955 when Trader Vic’s bar manager “Sneaky” Bob Bryant left his job and opened up his own place just down the street from his former employer. Decorated with tiki statues, bamboo, velvet paintings and netting, Bob set out to give his guests an authentic exotic and Polynesian experience. But perhaps what Tiki Bob’s is best known for is their iconic happy faced Tiki Bob mug, which some credit as the first tiki mug. Created by Alec Yuill-Thornton, and according to Sven Kirsten, author of Tiki Pop: America imagines its own Polynesian Paradise, the iconic mug looks “part George Jetson, part modern primitive.” The mug has a huge cult following, and many tiki mug artists and amateur artists use his iconic face in their designs.
Bryant left Tiki Bob’s in 1962 to work in Hawaii, and the bar closed in the late 70s, but a Tiki Bob support structure stands strong at the corner of Post and Taylor.
Bob's Signature Drink - Super Sneaky Tiki Recipe is available in Beachbum Berry’s Taboo Table.
This T-Shirt is available for Pre-Order until January 31st, and will be produced and shipped mid February.

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

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
