"Mystery Girl" Kahiki Tiki — Vintage Style Art Print
- Do you know the secret of the "Mystery Girl"?
Was Kahiki Supper Club the most elaborate tiki restaurant ever built?
What were the secret ingredients of the "Mystery Drink" cocktail?
Were fresh orchid leis really flown in from Hawaii 2-3 times per week?
We may never know all the details of Kahiki Supper Club but for decades it was the biggest and most happening Tiki spot in the Mid-West. The Kahiki was the brainchild of restauranteurs Bill Sapp and Lee Henry who wanted to bring a Tiki-themed restaurant to Columbus, Ohio. So popular was Kahiki it became a mainstay for celebrities visiting the area serving notable guests like Zsa Zsa Gabor, Bob Hope, Milton Berle , Gypsy Rose Lee, Robert Goulet, Van Johnson, and Andy Williams.
Kahiki Supper Club remains a legend in the tiki world years after closing. Why? Perhaps it was because of the grand Polynesian architecture. Or the legend of the "Mystery Drink", a cocktail served in a bowl with a "smoking volcano" in its center. The Mystery Drink served four people and had eight ounces of rum and brandy along with other secret ingredients. It was always served by the "Mystery Girl", a server summoned with a gong. The "Mystery Girl" would walk slowly to a drum beat and offer the "smoking volcano" to the large Tiki god fireplace before dancing her way to deliver the drink to the diners' table. A true spectacle to be witnessed by those in attendance.
The large building was elaborately designed both inside and out. Two large Moai statues with flames bursting from their heads greeted visitors at the entrance. The interior was a feast for the senses with fish-filled aquariums, simulated rain forests, thatched huts, gongs and drums, bubbling fountains, tropical cocktails and a most famously the giant stone fireplace modeled after a Tiki Idol.
In 1997, the restaurant was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. At the time, it was the only tiki restaurant in Ohio, and the only remaining supper club in Columbus. It closed in 2000 and was sold to Walgreens who demolished the restaurant and replaced it with one of its stores. Today Kahiki only to live on in memories and artwork celebrating one of the greatest Tiki themed supper clubs of all time.
