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.

As of July 7, 2020 TikiCat announced they are closing at their current location after negotiations with their landlord didn't work out. They plan to open at a new location sometime in the future.

TikiCat is outstanding and the entire experience was great. The ladies behind the bar were engaging, professional, and knowledgeable. I am fortunate enough to live about 12 miles from Max's South Seas (the other Sellers venue) and it is just as good, but 4 times the size and has excellent food. Come on out!

Took a group to Tikicat last weekend and had a great time. Talking to the bartender about Mark Sellers (the owner) and his collection of tiki. He said Mark just opened a new tiki bar in Grand Rapids with his collection called Max's. Could he have a second top ten tiki bar?!?! Got to go!!!
