Tabu Tiki Room

Munster, Indiana, United States

AKA: "The Tabu Tiki Lounge"

This is the home tiki bar of David "Duke" Carter and Amy Carter of Munster Indiana.

The Carters take the concept of a home tiki bar to another extreme. The entire lower level of their California modern-style home in Munster, Indiana, is a South Seas fantasy: thatched walls, bamboo wainscoting, bamboo furniture, hula girl lamps, framed Polynesian prints, tikis large and small, and a massive vintage mug collection, much of which is featured in their book, Tiki Quest: Collecting the Exotic Past (published in 2003 under David's tiki-collector pseudonym, Duke Carter). They call the basement the Tabu Tiki Room, the result of a long-shared obsession with tiki culture, especially its visually rich architecture and graphic design.
