Humuhumu’s description

TikiCat is a tiki bar in Kansas City, Missouri, it opened on April 13, 2017. The bar is part of the HopCat group, a chain of beer-focused pubs around the midwest. The focus here is pure tiki, not beer, and the group has enlisted the help of a number of noted specialists and artists: the buildout is by Bamboo Ben; Martin Cate has helped with the cocktail program; there are carvings by Dave Hansen (Lake Tiki), Patrick Sousa (OB Tiki), Ken Pleasant, and Jason Joffe (Smokin' Tikis); tiki mug and menu design by Anthony Carpenter; lamps by Jason Shelfow (Tiki J's Custom Lamps); and art by Thor Thordarson.
There is a vintage Witco bar and stools, and vintage furniture for seating. There are some intimate hut areas for groups, and table seating. The space is richly decorated, with carvings, art, bamboo, thatch, matting, and faux foliage throughout.
Reservations are recommended, and can be made via the website or OpenTable.

Traveled a long ways to see this bar, from Seattle Washington! It was worth the trip !!!
Cocktails were strong and delicious, the music was perfect and a lot of fun, and the decor was fabulous ( and thatís coming from a professional interior designer )!!!
The only disappointing thing was they were out of their signature tiki mugs to purchase.
The staff was very professional, caring, and top-notch!

The basement entrance is outstanding. It feels exclusive and full of whimsy that youíre discovering a hidden paradise.

And thatís just the damn door.

The decor is fantastic, the bartenders are friendly and attentive, the hut cabanas create a little private retreat in an already-intimate setting.

The painkiller was nothing short of outstanding.

And yep... a tiki cat mug from Tiki Farm is coming home with me.

My only ďcomplaintĒ (extremely minor) is the music was a bit random for a tiki bar... but seems like something Iíd do in my own bar. A bit of Hawaiian and surf, then some oldies, then some randomness 80s.
