The Hukilau was located on the second deck of the Captin's Inn, on the South Shore of the Long Beach Marina.

from the inside of this 1961 drink menu : " The fine art of blending and serving these truly authentic Polynesian and rhum concoctions calls for a skill as precise as a helmsman bringing his ship to port, and the care you'd lavish on your latest romance. Our master helmsman, bringing to you the finest of rhum drinks from the four corners of the world is renowned POPO himself."
