where every month we create a unique T-Shirt that will be available for Pre-Order only.
THE HAWAIIAN ROOM - HOTEL LEXINGTON - NY
IS OUR OCTOBER T-SHIRT OF THE MONTH
“Dine, Dance and Romance” in the The Hawaiian Room located in New York City’s Lexington Hotel.
In 1937, the Lexington Hotel opened The Hawaiian Room featuring South Seas ambience and Polynesian fare. For $1.65 you could sip on a Pirate’s Grog, “a treasure of rum fun pleasure and yo ho ho nobody walks a straight line” or Ana Ana, “a sorcerer’s blend of gin, rum and brandy fiendishly blended - only consigned to Hell Raisers!” for $1.70.
During its 29-year reign, the best of Hawaiian performers worked there including musician Ray Kinney, Clara Inter (aka “Hilo Hattie”), Alfred Apaka, Mona Joy Lum and Mahi Beamer. The Hawaiian Room’s legacy lives on as a group of "Ex-Lexes" from across Hawaii get together annually to catch up, share stories from their NYC experiences, and take a look back on this exciting and meaningful time in all their lives. Earlier this year PBS Hawai‘i Presents: The Hawaiian Room aired, interviewing more than 20 performer who had previously worked there.
Even though The Hawaiian Room is now closed, you can enjoy its memory with this month’s t-shirt design!
This is available for Pre-Order until September 30th and will be produced and shipped by mid October.

These shirts are a joy. Every month brings something that is worth getting. The stories are almost as good as the shirts.

Great fitting shirt with quality art. I enjoyed the included history "fact sheet" of the Tiki Bar that is illustrated on the shirt!

Quality of shirt and printing is always great! And the company is great to work with! Highly recommend! Thanks tiki of the month club!!
Jen B. - Subscription Club Member - The Makai Room - One of my favorites so far! This is my 5th purchase from Tiki Bar T-shirt Club and by far my favorite. Getting a little note about the history of the location is the icing on the cake. I only wish I could take time machine back to this place in its heyday. The reproduction of the art is just perfect. Love it!
Woody of WoodyMillerArt.com - Cannibal Cocktail Lounge - Great design, love this shirt!
Kurt B. - Subscription Club Member - I love the Tiki Bar T-shirt Club. It's always great to get a T-shirt in the mail from an old-school defunct tiki bar. Many of these closed spots are from the middle of the country so they haven't gotten the attention that larger tiki temples have received. It comes with a brief history of the spot. Oh and the tees are super comfortable.
Christopher S. - Waikiki Room - Not only does the shirt have a great design and look great but is so comfortable too. The material that's used is very comfortable and soft. I love this shirt. It's my first one but will not be my last!!
Jane S. - The Outrigger - I can't say enough good things, but I will try...the t-shirts are a bargain with their unique design and quality of seams and fabric. It's also really fun to see what design is coming next. It's Christmas every month!
Michael J. - Subscription Club Member - Great design, great fit. Already a regular in my closet
