Gateway to Tiki

For those who are familiar with the history of the Enchanted Tiki Room, or of the historic advertising campaign by United Air Lines promoting air travel to Hawaii, you may recognize the platform of this mug and the Lono tiki above. Each were inspired respectively. This Lono tiki was part of the promotional posters, marketing and advertising materials, and sculptural pieces that promoted the Enchanted Tiki Room, United Air Lines, or both!

With a love for the Enchanted Tiki Room, Hawaii, Tiki, and all things at the intersect of art in popular culture and advertising, Lost Tiki envisioned and designed this mug with the help of his friend Tom “THOR” Thordarson.

This mug is a direct follow-up and companion to our 2022 TikiLand Mug Society mystery mug, “Journey to Hawaii”. “Journey to Hawaii” was inspired the United Air Lines “HAWAII” campaign, and this mug is transitional in the story - moving from United Airlines, to the crossover of United Airlines’ sponsorship of the Enchanted Tiki Room when it first opened in 1963 until 1975.

Lost Tiki’s inspiration for each of the mugs created for TikiLand Mug Society is to tell part of his, and many other’s, story and journey of “falling down the Tiki rabbit hole”. This is the 3rd mug in the ongoing TikiLand Mug Society series.
This Lono Tiki has also been featured in all of our Gateway to Tiki products throughout 2023.

A custom drink recipe created by Kelly Merrell is included.

Gateway to Tiki member mug

Tikiland, you did it again! You folks never dissapoint and this mug is yet another gem. The detail is fantastic and it is much taller than it appears in photos. The only issue - I need a taller display cabinet now, oh darn!

Amazing Tiki Mug!

This mug is very detailed, and much bigger than I thought it would be. I am very glad I ordered it.
