Best Tiki Bars in NYC?

I have a dream: A 50's glam catering hall with a kitsch-jungle theme. Hulu dancers and a Don Ho orchestra. Giant blue flaming drinks served in pineapples and big enough for three.

I've been on the hunt (admittedly a rather lazy hunt) for the past two years and all I've come up with is Zombie Hut. Although they set the bar on fire on request, I still haven't reconciled my dream tiki bar with reality.

Are there any truly fabulous Tiki bars out there?

Suggestions, please.
