Chicago, Illinois, United States
Opened circa 1968. This Polynesian Restaurant was owned by E. Robert (Bobby) Baer.
They had a brilliantly plumaged macaw that greeted guests -- named Judy Garland.
Shanghai Lil's was named after the famous location in Shanghai that was a gathering for the diplomat corps and other international travelers.
This locale is best remembered for its live entertainment, including The Royal Hawaiians and their hula review.
Every Sunday had a luau feast.
They did serve tiki cocktails in tiki mugs. However, their ashtrays with signature wahine logo are probably more numerous out in the wild.
It closed about 1981. The property was razed no later than 1990 and the site now houses condos.
