Tiki bars have had a bit of a resurgence of late, with their Polynesian-themed cocktails and kitschy tropical decor. Sven Kirsten’s 640-page, hardcover coffee table book delves into the history of America’s pop take on tiki culture, with lots of wonderful archival photos and historical artifacts dating back as far as the 1930s.
THE BEST Tiki
Geeki Tikis‘ limited-edition tiki mugs are based on the likenesses of Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic Pulp Fiction. Each one holds up to 18 ounces of booze or your favorite beverage. Best enjoyed alongside a Big Kahuna burger or a Royale with cheese.
These playful ceramic tiki mugs are based on General Mills’ spooky cereal mascots Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry (sorry, Frute Brute fans.) They were sold in limited numbers at SDCC 2018, but it looks like another batch is up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth.
Mondo pays homage to the revered prophet from Planet of the Apes for its latest line of Tee-kis tiki mugs. The Lawgiver mug has a capacity of 18oz and comes in four colorways, including a sweet bloody one. A deep brown colorway will be released at a later date.
Trekkies who prefer to rum and fruit juice cocktails to Romulan ale will be thrilled with this awesome set of tiki glasses, inspired by The Original Series. The set of 14oz. ceramic tikis includes likenesses of Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, a Gorn, a Klingon, Mr. Spock, and a Mugato.
Geeki Tikis’ series of officially-licensed tiki mugs includes designs based on Star Wars, Star Trek, TMNT, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, and more. There’s even a Pulp Fiction series on the way. They’re like the Funko POP! collectibles of barware, and we must have them all.
Mondo teamed up with Michael Bonanno and Ramirez Studios to create these awesome tiki mugs inspired by the sci-fi comedy Gremlins. The limited edition mugs will start shipping in early 2017, and are the first in a series which will include Alien and Iron Giant tiki mugs.
