In 1967, Leo Frank opened The Hawaiian Isle & Inn along the Sunny Isles area of North Miami Beach. The Inn featured an iconic shingle-clad primitive hut over the main entrance as well as the hard to miss huge back-lit mask with glowing green eyes to the right.
Inside a talking parrot greeted the guests among the images of Polynesian deities and Witco carvings and tikis. Inside the Tiki Showroom & Cocktail Lounge you could enjoy the floorshow featuring hula and other South Seas dancers while sipping on a $1.95 Island Sling, Zombie or Doctor Funk. It’s not clear when the Inn closed, but today that location is a high-rise condominium complex called Pinnacle.
While researching the Hawaiian Isle & Inn, I came across an old home movie filmed at the Hawaiian Isle, featured here. There’s some great stories and articles found on the site as well.
This is available for Pre-Order until April 30th and will be produced and shipped by mid May.
