Seattle, Washington, United States
The Bungalow is the home tiki bar of Robb and Sarah Sieger, in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Sunset Hill to be specific. It was created in their 1949 bungalow-style home, in its glassed-in front porch, in March 2015. It has west-facing views of the Olympic mountains, Puget Sound, Bainbridge Island, and the sunset.
The couple was inspired by a trip to the Tonga Room in San Francisco in 2010, and sought further inspiration from Beachbum Berry's "Potions of the Caribbean" and photos of Martin Cate's home tiki bar. The bar and stools were acquired from a Hawaiian native living in Seattle, via Craigslist. There is a vintage Paul Frankl pretzel-style rattan sofa with matching end tables. The decor includes plenty of nautical gear sourced from Seattle's Fisherman's Terminal, items from the Coco Palms on Kauai, vintage and collectible bric-a-brac, and lamps, shelves and wall hangings created by Robb.
