It’s 7pm on a Friday night and the bar is packed.
Inside, wartime photography and memorabilia cover the walls of this luau- and Tiki-inspired watering hole. Patrons share beers at long beer hall tables, while little replica WWII fighter planes fly by overhead on an automated pulley track system. In the middle of the room, guests take photos of -- and drink beer inside -- an authentic 1942 Admiral Nimitz Jeep, and a Vietnam-era tuktuk (auto rickshaw) used to shuttle airmen to their B-52 bombers.
This isn’t your grandfather’s canteen bar. Wait, nevermind: It’s exactly your grandfather’s canteen bar.
