For New Orleanians of the Baby Boom generation, the experience of having dinner at the Bali Ha’i with one of the first people you ever dated is almost universal. The number of us who went there for dinner before the prom is legion.
Bali Ha'i at the Beach was located near the entrance of the Pontchartrain Beach amusement park, which was open from 1939 to 1983. It was known as Pontchartrain Beach-Combers before the name changed to Bali Ha'i at the Beach. Two tikis and an A-frame gazebo with a sign from the Bali Ha'i have been relocated to Veterans Memorial Park in Kenner, LA. The Bali Ha'i signature mug was a copy of the logo mug from Tiki Bob's in San Francisco.
