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
Cleveland, OH
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.

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.
DJMaxPayola is a regular at Porco Lounge & Tiki Room, and is usually there Last Thursday of the month.

when I landed in Cleveland yesterday I was tired but I need to hit a tiki wishlist spot before work business today Porco lounge was great! A tart passionfruit heart of darkness with a creamy painkiller for dessert. They had lots of great meatball and pork centered small plates but I had eaten during travel so I just had a pepperoni snack roll. I wish I could revisit this place but wonít likely have time. I love the little pig icon too. They had horror movies on the big screen for Halloween so it felt festive. I didnít capture it but they are serving and cooking with the liquid and decorating with the giant yellow cans of luxardo cherries itís cold here I would need to live in this tiki bar if I lived here it was cozy and friendly
