A look inside TikiCat
Kansas City once had several well-known tiki bars, including Castaways, Kona Kai and Kon-Tiki, each of which graced the city with its own take on a Polynesian getaway. With their outlandish tropical decor and exotic drinks, they were the source for many memories for generations of KC residents.
TikiCat reflects my love for Tiki culture and cocktails, and my love for Hawaii (which I have visited many times). I built this place to be a retreat from our Midwestern lives. Whether it’s a cold day in January or a blistering hot day in July - - I want TikiCat to feel like a tropical hideaway, where you can escape reality - - if only for a few hours.
We craft our cocktails to order, one by one, with fresh juices, good booze and our own aloha spirit. Doing things this way sometimes takes longer than your typical bar drink, so hang loose, kick back, relax, and enjoy this secret “oasis” in the city.
Aloha and mahalo nui loa,
Mugs are now available.
