    This pink plastic swizzle is marked "Lei Vapors Hot Springs". There is a Hot Springs, Arkansas that had a notorious establishment called The Vapors which was a nightclub during the last era of illegal gambling in the city. Upscale entertainment in the style of Las Vegas, Nevada—featuring well-known acts like Edgar Bergen, the Smothers Brothers, and Tony Bennett—distinguished it from many of the rival clubs in the area. However, it's not clear if this swizzle was from there or another similarly named establishment.

    Marvin Chin, owner of the Chin Tiki, also owned the Port O' Three Tiki restaurant in nearby Bloomfield Hills, MI. Its menu, swizzles, and signage used many of the same graphics as the Chin Tiki. The Port O' Three name came from his "three types of food" concept for the restaurant which he advertised for on his matchbooks: "A unique combination of sea food, Polynesian, and Japanese cuisine under one roof....". It opened in 1971 but only lasted a couple of years.

    The House Without a Key is a novel that was written in 1925 by Earl Derr Biggers -- the first of the Charlie Chan mysteries. But it is also a real life place in Waikiki. The Halekulani hotel and its House Without A Key restaurant/bar began its life in 1907 as the Hau Tree Residential Hotel, a relatively modest establishment with a beachfront house and five bungalows. By the 1980s, the Halekulani hotel had grown, but the skyrocketing costs of Waikiki beachfront property made such a small resort impractical so it was sold to Japan’s Mitsui Corporation, which then created the “new” Halekulani around the old grounds and original building, with 453 elegant new rooms, updating it into a modern resort.

    Hawaiian Isle, Tiki Bar, Blue in 1 collection

    This tiki swizzle was issued in several colors. Hawaiian Isle was in the Sunny Isles area of North Miami Beach, very near another complex, The Castaways . It had a weathered shingle-clad pyramid over the main entrance, a sort of sharp, angular, modern take on a primitive hut. The tikis on site were highly stylized (in particular a large, back-lit, glowing mask near the entrance), and many were Witco tikis. Today the location is a high-rise condominium complex called Pinnacle.
