Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus
Take a set back into retro Columbus with the book Kahiki Supper Club by David Meyers.
The Kahiki, a South Seas themed restaurant, was located in Columbus on East Broad Street. The restaurant was easy to identify since it was shaped like a Polynesian fighting boat, with giant flaming Mo’ai heads outside the main doors. Entering you walked into a faux South Pacific village with tropical rainforest, totally exotic. The best was ordering up the “Mystery Drink” which came in a bowl with a smoking volcano and served by the “Mystery Girl” who danced the drink to your table after being summoned by a giant gong, fun!
