“This tiki bar in a suburb of Sydney, Australia opened in August 2017 by partners Pasan Wijesena, James Fury, Adrian Sanchez, and Stu Ellis. Inspired by the tiki-loving character Dr. Jacoby from Twin Peaks, the bar aims to deliver on nostalgia for both Polynesian Pop and the cult favorite television show. The walls are lined with matting and banana-leaf-motif wallpaper, the ceiling with straw matting, and the wooden back bar has several large mounted tikis carved in Queensland. Classic tropical drinks are served, some in tiki mugs.”
I'm an hour or so west, in the mountains, but I was thinking of going to visit a friend in the city soon. She lives in the next suburb over, within walking distance; I'll definitely check it out & snap a few pics if/when I go!Is anyone here in or near Sydney, or planning to visit the area?

Okay, the pressure's on now.Can't wait!
Start a thread on it and we can perhaps have a section or thread dedicated to all the TP-inspired venues across the world
I'm always the one to encourage others to indulge in vices, but you could go to the bar and have a non-alcoholic drink? I took a two-week pause from alcohol recently (I drank a lot of coffee instead), and I haven't been as productive in ages.I think I mentioned in another thread I'm a non-drinker for the moment, but this seems as good a reason as any to dip my toes. I do have covid at the moment though (mild, thankfully) so the visit has been postponed, but it's still on the cards!
