In 1967, Detroit's newest luxurious restaurant, the Mauna Loa opened to great anticipation with the hope to provide patrons with a culinary journey through the Pacific Archipelago. The $2.25 million restaurant, nestled on a man-made lagoon on West Grand Boulevard and Cass, was the dream of Robert L. Fenton, a 37 year old Detroit lawyer who assembled over 40 investors to make it come to fruition.
The exterior featured a waterfall that rushed down a hill of volcanic lava into a lagoon surrounded by flaming tiki poles and seven palm trees. Inside, the Monkey Bar featured heroic island figures, authentic tiki carvings, glowing blowfish and an enormous war canoe from Samoa.
Unfortunately, it was only open for a couple years, but you can bring back the memory of the Mauna Loa with this month’s t-shirt design!
