Humuhumu’s description

Taha'a Twisted Tiki opened in December 2013, in the Grove neighborhood of St. Louis. The decor is simple, and there is an outdoor patio. There is a menu of tropical drinks available, served in tiki mugs, and a Volcano Bowl.

I am a native Southern Californian who had a regular seat at Don The Beachcomber. I moved to St. Louis in 2013 and was very excited when Taha opened.
My wife and I went early, and the drinks were authentic, but the menu was a bit limited. They had a good start on building a good decor, but the music was 1990s pop - WHAT THE?
As time went on, my Tiki friends and I would stop in on occasion, and the music never improved. In 2014 or 5, I even gave the management a thumb drive with about 6 hours of Exotica, Surf, and Hapa Haole.
I don't know if they ever got a grip on the music or not, but I gave up in favor of home Cocktail Parties where we can get our Tiki and Les Baxter on.

We go to Tiki places all over North America....and beyond.
We were very much looking forward to visiting here as it was new to us since to last visit to St Louis, and we had inflated optimism, it turns out.
The website seemed heavily weighted towards food but did mention an extensive rum selection. We were surprised that NO FOOD was available after 9 PM! We had just finished work at 10:30 PM and were jonesin for some nibbles with our drinks..........walking into a nearly empty place.......nice bamboo elements, BUT. I wanted to sit somewhere out of the sight of TV screens.......too bad, as there are multiple ones...............showing fucking sports crap, which to me is the cardinal sin.......and add to that, filling the room with hip-hop music?! Why bother going to a so-called Tiki Bar, when you can experience this lowest common denominator crap anywhere?! C'mon people!!!
The drinks were OK, the service was pleasant, but I never want to go back to this place. Very Disappointing.
