    Chin Tiki, Restaurant - Yellow in 3 collections

    This pick is tiki topped and the stem is more like a knife or dagger than a standard pick. Chin Tiki was opened in 1967 by Marvin Chin, who also opened Chin's Chop Suey in Livonia. Chin Tiki closed around 1980, but the space and decor have remained relatively intact, spurring periodic rumors about it reopening. Chin Tiki was featured in the Eminem movie 8 Mile; during the filming of 8 Mile, apparently much of the kitchen equipment went missing.

    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.

    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.
