Special Notes: The Islander in Stockton, CA was a Tiki bar and nightclub from the 1960’s – 1982. Began by an owner named Hop Sing, it was taken over by Tommy Lee in 1966 and featured nightclub acts and sub-rosa gambling. It introduced various iconic Tiki mugs over the years, made by Otagiri/OMC. Four years after closing, the building was moved to a new location by Hwy 99 and Eight Mile Rd.
