to this much larger space, just down the street and now right on the Mississippi River.
The main level includes a restaurant and bar, and a large patio overlooking the river. There are large carved posts and tikis, and walls lined with lauhala matting and and carved wooden tchotchkes. On weekends, house band Exotik-a-Go-Go plays Exotica music, and the upstairs area is open. The upstairs, Shangri-La, has three distinct themed bars: the Shrunken Head, Forbidden Cove, and Ports of Pleasure. Each of the upstairs bars can be rented out for private events.

Minnesota Tiki Stop # 1 - Psycho Suziís Motor Lounge.

This place is an institution, having grown up in the early 2000s and in their current location for almost a decade. The vibe is old school in many ways, with some wonderful decor thatís tiki-heavy. Only the downstairs tiki bar is open right now, but the patio is there if you are feeling okay with the weather (it wasnít the day we visited) or want to check out the Mississippi River.

Food is a mix of traditional tiki inspired dishes, such as the wonton cheese dip that was great. There are burgers and pizza, too. My chicken salad sandwich was great.

Drinks here unfortunately werenít that good. Too fake sugary and artificial flavored.

I heard service can be hit or miss but last night it was great. They also have a gift shop up on the main level where you enter and they have mugs, books, and other items for sale. I bought a T-shirt that looks great. Loved the vibe here. If youíre a local, consider supporting the best tiki bar In Minneapolis.

(Oops, I didnít remember save = post) charicatures that donít add much to the tiki ambience.

The bar is a resin coated bambooish pattern, and there are a TON of small, strung, orange and purple lights. Honestly it feels more like my daufhterís dorm room, alibet much cleaner and organized.

The music just began and it is exotica, so that is something. They also now have the torches lit outside so it has a little better vibe.

Finally my mai tai... I am a loss for words, and not in a good way. It is way too sweet and the bartender literally made it in less than 45 seconds. I didnít see how he did it, but I think there is a premix involved. It was garnished with a pineapple and Sysco maraschino-style cherry. The drink menu says it should be garnished with mint and love. As the bartender isnít my type, I opted to ask just for the mint. To his credit he didnít sigh or get irritated, but I ended up with one leaf - seriously, one little mint leaf.

I donít mean to begrudge this place, but I got to spend a lovely evening at The Inferno Room in Indianapolis a couple of nights ago, and while not a Hale Pale or Tiki Cat, they made excellent cocktails and could talk about rum, life, and the universe. Psycho Suziís is not in that league. It must survive as all Tiki bars must, just donít come here thinking it is purist. It is a great college bar in the State of ďgood enoughĒ (I believe that is what Minnesota means in Polynesian).

The first couple of times I was here I didnít know the ways of Tiki, so I was a bit in awe that a bar like this existed. We sat outside and it is really cool. There is a very large tiki with fire. It is very cool.

Since traveling the seven seas (well, many states), I had the occasion to revisit Psycho Suziís. It is cold and wintery so I am relegated to the indoors. It feels designed-kitschy. There are tiki carvings - some intricate carved poles, but most are
