where every month we create a unique T-Shirt that will be available for Pre-Order only.
THE HUKI-LUA BAR AT THE MAINLANDER IN ST. LOUIS, MO IS OUR TIKI BAR T-SHIRT FOR MAY
"The Mainlander" was a Polynesian restaurant in operation from 1962 to 1977 located in a Clayton Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. The entrance featured 10 foot tiki totems and an iconic Witco Fountain, which was used on the restaurant’s tiki mugs, menu, matchbooks, swizzle sticks and in their advertising. Lava rock was used to continue the ambience into the dining room and downstairs where the rocks became a waterfall inside the Huki-Lau Bar and Lounge. The south seas decor included grass shacks, bamboo covered walls, and many island artifacts. The decor didn’t stop there, outside was another fountain and a “white sand beach.”
Authentic Polynesian dishes were offered on the menu, including the impressive Lobster Tahiti served in a huge clam shell.
The cocktail menu featured “South Sea Potions” like the Suffering Bastard or the Pearl Diver, both for only a $1.50! While sipping on your potion, you could listen to the sounds of St. Louis native and well respected pianist, Marion Miller.
Sadly, the restaurant closed after a fire, and with it went part of St. Louis tiki history.
This is available for Pre-Order until April 30th and will be produced and shipped by mid May.

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
