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 came here soon after they opened for the day. It was a nice respite from the chaos outside and downstairs. There was one other patron there. He and the bartender were great conversation. Drinks were good. The alcoholic Gummys pretty interesting. The music wasn't Exotica but relaxed (I heard a couple Elvis ballads in the mix. I enjoyed it alot.

Tiki Tolteca in NOLA! This is New Orleans’ lesser known tiki bar, located on the same block as that “other place”...
They’ve done a great job closing out the outside environment, especially important in New Orleans compared to most other cities. Lots of drapes and curtains but still a tropical vibe with plenty of tikis. Some mix of Mexican elements playing off the “Tolteca” in Tiki Tolteca as well.
My Mai Tai was delicious and made with El Dorado 5 and Smith & Cross, so two excellent rums!
I also tried their original Two Ton Swizzle with a couple rums including Hamilton 151, Allspice Liqueur, Lemon, Grapefruit, and bitters.
Music is was a mix of groovy 60s and 70s pop/rock, including some surf. When I arrived it was a very mellow Wednesday night vibe. Then a group of 18 arrived and the bar staff went into frenzy mode to serve all the guests. The staff definitely worked well together. The staff was friendly and professional but would benefit from a more tropical attire or some sort of uniform/common dress.
I had a great time at Tiki Tolteca and will try to return later on my trip to NOLA.

Went here cause Latitude29 was being remodeled at the time. A nice surprise of a bar- love the Moais and the amount of lounge area. Only negative was the bartenders were standoffish that night. Wouldn’t keep me from revisiting though.
