Colonia Nápoles, Ciudad de México, Ciudad de México, Mexico
Mauna Loa was Mexico City's contribution to the mid-century world of glorious, immersive Polynesian restaurants. Through a classic A-frame entry, visitors were greeted by a central pool populated with live pink flamingoes, and were entertained by a full Polynesian floor show production.
Collectors are very familiar with the amazing graphics on the Mauna Loa menu and the variety of custom mugs and swizzles for this location as well.
This location now appears to be an office building.
*NOTE -- There was another more modern Mauna Loa elsewhere in Mexico City (at St. Jerome 240), that opened after the first (Hamburg 172) caught fire in 1966, and this newer one stayed open till 2002.
No one has visited this tiki bar.
