Aloha Club Tiki Bar Vintage Matchbook Art Reproduction Poster 24x36
This is a reproduction of an old matchbook from an old tiki bar called The Aloha Club in Martinez California. The art for this matchbook was scanned, digitally traced and then restored with some of the original colors changed to allow it to scale up to 24x36 inches in size with zero jagged edges and beautiful consistent color.
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!
The poster itself is printed on a 12 color large format plotter on bond paper and is suitable for framing. The print itself has a roughly quarter inch border around the edges to allow for easier framing.
The 11x17 version is a digital output not done on archival paper, the 13x19 paper is printed on watercolor style paper using an eight color printer with archival inks.
All prints are mailed rolled in a tube and shipped via USPS.
