Humuhumu’s description

The Inferno Room is slated to open sometime in 2017 in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis, in a building that previously held a Marion County courthouse. This is the creation of longtime tiki devotee Ed Rudisell, in partnership with his wife Sasatorn Rudisell and Chris Coy. The trio have a number of successful restaurants in the Indianapolis area. Rudisell aims to bring his passion for authentic mid-century Tiki to the city.
The drink menu and food menu will pay strong tribute to classic Polynesian restaurant menus, executed with quality in mind. The decor will play to the sense of danger and mystery in tiki, with a particular emphasis on fire. Rudisell is taking his time with the build-out, to ensure he can bring together the immersive space he desires.

We went shortly after their grand opening to see what the fuss was about and man, is it good. My wife and I ordered a selection of starters and entrees, as well as five drinks between us (three for me, two for her). They don't skimp on the booze, and they maintain a dogged dedication to the old-school feel of tiki while being creative and up to date on trends. HIGHLY recommend.

This place is open and it is amazing! Went on 11-4-18, very crowded had to wait 20 minutes to be sat. Cool decor, GREAT drinks, and great food. I’ve only been to 4 tiki bars, but this as my favorite!

The Inferno Room is indeed open - the Critiki page needs updating so that the tiki community clearly knows that it is open and goes to support this EXCELLENT tiki bar. This is a full-tilt tiki bar crafted and run by tikiphiles. The decor rivals the best modern and vintage bars around the country. It is filled with authentic New Guinea carvings, augmented by originals by Wisconsin's Lake Tiki. The drinks are well crafted, and provide both classics and inventive originals ( The Fog of Thor and the Galileo Seven are my faves). The limited bar food menu pairs very well with the drinks ( fresh hand-made crab rangoon, pork laulau and pineapple fried rice are all great choices). It's owned and run by great people (Co-owner Chris is a great host). Locals are enjoying a real tiki bar. It's time that tiki travelers put this place on their " to visit" lists!
