Humuhumu’s description

When Tiki Tolteca opened in May 2013, it was the first tiki bar to operate in New Orleans in decades. It sits within a Mexican taqueria called Felipe's, and as such is a blend of Tiki and Latin American influences. They make their own syrups and use fresh juices, and incorporate south-of-the-border spirits like mezcal, pisco and cachaça beyond the expected rum. Food is available from Felipe's below.
The space blends exposed brick with bamboo and thatch, and there are many beachcomber lamps. Drinks are served in tiki mugs, or in the heavy, blue-rimmed glasses that are familiar in Mexican restaurants.

I really enjoyed this place! Our bartender was very nice and friendly. I believe the music was good, it’s decked out nicely. Second time there it was pretty dead but believe it was a week day. Look forward to visiting it again.

I had slightly mixed feelings about this place when I visited there last week, but in retrospect I wish I had gone again. First of all, I thought that Latitude 29 was the only Tiki place in NOLa until I searched Critiki and to my surprise discovered that Tiki Tolteca was also there. It was super calm when we got there, pretty empty-maybe 10 people in the whole place-which maybe unfairly gave me the first impression that it wasn't all that. On the contrary this place had a lot of great things going for it. Cool decor, cool space, and cool mugs for sale. I bought the very unique 'Serpent' mug which is incredibly well designed. As visitors usually do in NOLa, I had been over the few days that I was already there, indulging in food and drink. By the time I got to Tiki Tolteca it was time to reel it in a bit, so I only had one drink. A Mai Tai which was very good. I'm sure at some I'll be back down to the Big Easy and when I am I will definitely visit TT.

We enjoyed this space. Strong but good drinks, relatively good bartender ... the challenge is this bar seems to be controlled by the patron vibe - meaning sometimes, it's a cool crowd and the bartenders are great; other times, it seems like a college frat party. The decor was on point though.
