Humuhumu’s description

Snowbird Tiki Bar opened on April 7, 2017, in Montreal's Little Italy, in the space that used to hold Cafe International. The bar's owners also own Taverne Cobra and Brutus. The space has green-painted walls, with bamboo dividers between booths, float lights, and lots of vintage pieces in the decor. The bar incorporates some elements from the recently-closed Jardin Tiki

Drinks were good, food was decent, but very few tikis! And they played a full album of steel drum covers on repeat.

Visited on the second day of their soft-opening inaugural weekend, so it is tough to score properly at this time. However, this is one Montrealer who is very pleased with the work, direction, and effort made behind this endeavour!

Though the people behind this bar are admittedly green to the Tiki scene, having had the good fortune to speak with a few directly, I shall say their interests and efforts appear to be respectful, in earnest, and sincere!
The bar, both the animate and inanimate aspects, was welcoming and feels genuine of character; while it is still a little more on the kitsch side of the culture, Hawaiian shirts and muumuus aside, this place did really feel my kind of 'Aloha', something which I value largely in and outside of the global Tiki "Ohana."
Granted choices are rather slim in Montreal — we've a few eateries catering to Hawaiian fare, but nothing I would say comes close to really qualifying as a proper Tiki destination — I can conclude at this time that I am both happy and optimistic about the future of this place, and shall certainly be back! My Critiki star-rating and review shall be revised once they are fully up and running. For the time being though, I say: Bravo! and wish the Snowbird the very best of luck!

p.s. a little side note. While I am still not fully enamoured by the logo, Anne Murray's famous clutch on the name is fading some. I am pretty optimistic that, following a few more visits, any reservations I may have on these two aspects shall fade beneath a pleasant cocktail-wash and musical-sway.
