Aloha Club Vintage Tiki Bar Matchbook Art T-Shirt Reproduction.
This is a reproduction of a tiki bar matchbook from a place called The Aloha Club. Experiencing its heydey during World War II, The Aloha Club was basically an Pacific island themed bar that offered dancing and strong cocktails to sailors and other people passing through Martinez, CA. Located near two ammunition facilities, including the infamous Port Chicago Munitions Depot.
There are a lot of variations on this matchbook floating around, apparently the owners of this club (and many others in the pre-internet days) had no issue straight up stealing artwork from more established places like Don The Beachcomber.
We liked this version, featuring the kind of shady-looking character in the background lighting up a cigarette. It is a matchbook after all!
