Tiki culture is a 20th-century theme used in Polynesian-style restaurants and clubs in the United States. This type of culture is inspired in part by Tiki carvings and Tiki mythology. This connection though, is only loose ans stylistic because it is only a form of American kitsch and not the Polynesian fine art forms to which it refers.
Tiki culture in the United States began in 1934 with the opening of Don the Beachcomber in Hollywood. His restaurant and others like his featured exotic rum punches and cocktails along with Polynesian or Cantonese cuisine. Places like this were decorated with flaming torches, rattan lounge furniture, flowers, leis and brightly colored patterns and fabrics.
