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.

O......M.......G....I am still short of breath. This place is GREAT!!! If you read my reviews, first of all thank you!, then you know that I am a fan of kitschy places. I love the quirkiness of tiki bars. This place is so on point. The decor is so well done. It is the right mix of kitsch and posh. Reservations are recommended but if you don't make them then you can wait upstairs in Hop Cat until a table opens up. The host Marc was so nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. Piku Palau (sp?) makes incredible drinks. The menu is a perfect mix of classics and original concoctions. The coup de gras.....they're mugs that are custom from Tiki Farm are only $10......yes....$10. Needless to say I bought the set of 4. This is a must see for all tikiphiles. I love it.
