Name:The Hawaiian Club
Street:Mason and Market
City:San Francisco


Picked up a photo folder from the Hawaiian Club located at Mason and Market in San Francisco. Appears to have been a classic bamboo pre-Tiki joint.

Photos of the ladies and their leis.

I love the sailor in the background having a smoke at the bamboo bar, classic!

Mimi also has this menu on her website, Arkiva Tropika.


Those ladies remind me of the pain scale charts they use for kids at the doctors office.


I have clipped images of a few more relics from the Hawaiian Club.

First up a napkin which features the hula girl graphic used at many of the bamboo bars and restaurants of the era.

Next an old menu with some rather interesting tropical drink names

Another souvenir photo set

And last, but not least, a more modern looking menu that now incorporates some Tiki figures.

Confirms that this place lasted into the 1950s.
