GILES' LEILANI - BROOKFIELD, WISCONSIN
IS OUR TIKI BAR T-SHIRT FOR AUGUST
Located in Brookfield WI, Leilani Village opened in the early 1960s and through the years it was also known as Giles' Leilani and as Harold's Leilani Motel. The restaurant had five dining rooms, two cocktail lounges, and the motel had 60 rooms. The tiki decor was elaborate with thatch ceilings, tablecloths of monkey pod wood, coconut carving, tropical plants, and tikis carved from lava by Sculptor Gerhard E. Kroll. Outside were live palm trees, fountains and a sign illuminated with jets of fire.
Major entertainers like Vic Damone and Frankie Laine performed there, and it is rumored Frank Sinatra would pop in from time to time. For $2.75 you could indulge in a huge seafood buffet which included exotic food like frog legs and you could sip on their Planter's Punch for $1.40 or for the big spender, their Ticklish Tiki for $2.50.
Sadly, Leilani Village was demolished in 1996 to make room for something less Tiki.
This T-Shirt is available for Pre-Order until July 31st, and will be produced and shipped mid August.

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!

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
