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.
This version of the South Pacific paddle has artwork on the back side that portrays a tiki with torches and the word "Tiki" in a shape that looks like 4 shields. This artwork is very similar to the sign outside the Kon Tiki in Tucson, AZ. The "T" in the logo text has 3 horizontal cross lines.
This version of the South Pacific paddle has logo artwork on the front side and no art on the back side. The "T" in the logo text has 3 horizontal cross lines.
This swizzle features a couple under a palm tree and a curved stem with the Castaways logo.

Located in Indianapolis, originally Knobby's, the restaurant moved to a Polynesian theme and became Knobby's Mai Tai, then the Mai Tai. An early ad references the dining area as the Kahuna Room. Kahuna Lounge appears to reference the bar area. The picks are very similar in style to the Kahiki in Columbus Ohio. This moai pick is shorter than the branded version.
