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 cachaša 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.

How to find it

My first visit to Tiki Tolteca was forgettable. The bartender on duty looked bored and disinterested, and I never once saw a smile from him. The drink he made was ok... To be honest, I don't think it was as good as it could have been.

My second visit was much improved. The bartender that night not only smiled and joked with the patrons, but he took the time to show us rums he used in the Mai Tai. I was very impressed, and the drinks were much better tasting and we'll presented.

Drink menu is not extensive, but don't be shy about asking for something not on the menu. Fantastic well crafted drinks. Wheel is a fun way to select a drink, but I would never try it as long as the Smirnoff Ice is on there (satirically)--I'm pretty sure that counts as cruel and unusual punishment! I was there on a quiet Monday night, but the bar tender was engaging and a nice group assembled and had some fun banter. No merch to buy but that's ok--NoLa has plenty of kitsch so it's ok to leave with just some nice memories. The food is from the Mexican place downstairs which is not tiki, but the food was good so can't complain. Nice place, hope it gets a good following and sticks around. Definitely need some sort of "passport" or loyalty program for regulars.
