Maricopa, Arizona, United States
The Hunahuna Hut is the home tiki bar of James and Marshell Claycomb in Maricopa, Arizona, just south of Phoenix. They created the bar in a bedroom of their home in June 2016. "Hunahuna" is an old Marquesan term for "cleverly hidden." The room is a relaxing retreat, filled with the sounds of vintage Exotica albums, a fountain of trickling water, and the clank of classic rum cocktails. The Hunahuna Hut is wrapped in bamboo, lauhala, and carved wood pieces throughout. The bar also features a fiber optic starlight ceiling with overhanging vegetation. The freestanding bar and fully stocked backbar are enhanced by a wall designed to look like a dismantled ship interior. This nautical wall includes a tiki-appropriate monitor, hidden behind two portholes that display scenes of the setting sun along the coast of an exotic island.
