Humuhumu’s description

Porco Lounge & Tiki Room opened in Cleveland's historic Tremont neighborhood in October 2013. Owner Stefan Was let his passion for tiki lead him into the hospitality business. Porco Lounge is the first tiki bar in Cleveland since the Kon-Tiki

Bar & Restaurant
closed in 1976. Was used elements from the Kon-Tiki in the decor for Porco, including some lamps and bamboo from the restaurant. Also used for decor are Was' collections of swizzle sticks and tiki mugs. Was hired Shannon Smith to lead the bar program, bringing his background in craft cocktails with him, resulting in a menu of finely crafted tiki drinks.

I gotta say, I think this place is highly underrated! I've only been once, but despite being absolutely packed, the drinks were made with attention to detail, and the staff was so friendly and knowledgable! Our server took the time ti share the history of certain recipes and really knew her stuff! I appreciate that they serve food (what's with Cleveland and meatballs?), and that they had a vegetarian option. The decor was excellent. I would go back to Cleveland just to visit this place!

Wife and I visited on Sunday, March 12, 2018, during a grand tour of tiki establishments stretching from Milwaukee to Smyrna, Tenn. Well forth the visit.

Wasn't crazy about the music (80's Rock), but everything else was so great I looked right past that. Decor was outstanding with lots of tiki clutter to admire. Drinks were amongst the best I've had anywhere, bartenders were friendly and sent us away with a collector mug by Tiki Diablo and a complementary drink menu, something they didn't have to do and a welcome gesture.

Side windows were open, something that goes against my bias for dark tiki bars, but it was night time and snowing outside. Fun sipping an outstanding Mai Tai while watching the snow coming down in 22 degree weather! Probably the best bar we hit all trip.

While in Columbus for our friends' wedding, my husband and I made the two hour trek to Cleveland just to check out Porco. It was well worth it-great cocktail selection, good balanced drinks, friendly clientele, dark and moody atmosphere and exceptional decor. Thursdays is vinyl night and DJ Max Payola was spinning some fantastic 60s pop that really upped the vibe. We spent the majority of our visit talking with the owner, Stefan, spanning all topics from tiki and mid-century modern to Star Wars and Vespas. If we were brave enough to live in the frozen North, no doubt we'd be regulars here. We went home with one of their custom mugs designed by Tiki Diablo and a genuine sense of aloha from our newly found Ohio ohana.
