Once a rather lavish Polynesian palace (the construction cost was $1.6 million—in 1967), the Mauna Loa is little discussed, but may have even been on par with the Kahiki Supper Club

in Ft. Lauderdale. It didn't last long, closing just a few short years after opening. The menus, mugs and serving items that came out of the Mauna Loa were uniquely beautiful, and thanks to its short life, rather rare.
The building that once housed the Mauna Loa has burned down, and the site is now the parking lot for the St. Regis hotel.
