Mar Vista Lanes was built at the peak of the golden age of bowling in 1961, and was designed by famed architects Armet & Davis. It featured a Tiki Bar cocktail lounge, the Makai Room, that was inspired by the 1958 best-seller Aku-Aku: The Secret of Easter Island.
Through a small A-frame entrance from the street, you could find The Makai Room. The bar featured Charlie Ross at the piano and a tiki statue in the corner guarding the entrance to the coffee shop. There were originally three six-foot wooden statues, but two were stolen soon after the bowling alley opened.
Unfortunately, the bar was remodeled in the mid 70s and the last trace of the Easter Island motif was the wooden Tiki holding up the southwest corner of the building, but you can bring back the memory of The Makai Room with this month’s t-shirt design!
This is available for Pre-Order until March 31st and will be produced and shipped by mid April.
