Very cool tropical-themed speakeasy in KC. Only drinks, very strong ones at that - but expertly made and delicious. Absolutely a must stop if you are in KC.

Also, FYI; drinks only, no TVs, small bar to bring your friends/girlfriend to drink in and talk. I highly recommend making reservations beforehand. Try the zombie, but drink it slowly!

Wonderful laid-back vibe and delicious drinks. We sat at the bar and the bartender told us about the drinks she was making. They don’t have servers so when you want a drink you go to the center of the bar and someone takes your drink order. Well-organized and smooth process. Drinks were Beautifully crafted, delicious, unique and lots of variety. Loved this place!!! We will return!!

For one, this place is hidden in HopCat so dont be confused when you dont see it.
This place is amazing! For one, we love how secure it is from the outside world so it's like you've been transported to a different world. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is incredibly helpful and there to make your experience the best! Reservations are HIGHLY recommended! Do not miss this place if you're in KC

This is definitely my favorite bar. I have come here with friends for multiple occasions and it's always a great experience. I have not tried a cocktail that I didn't like - they are always the perfect balance of alcohol and sweetness. While all of the staff has been great each visit, the service of the hostess (can't remember her name, she was there 3/28) stood out - she was so friendly and accommodating!

I brought my mom and grandma here as their "last stop" before going back to Texas and TikiCat didn't disappoint! Service was excellent and drinks were wonderfully strong/delicious! TikiCat never fails to deliver a great time. Thanks for being the best!

Everyone was so nice and friendly. The place looked great and the drinks were beautiful! My group sat in a couch area and we loved it. The decor of the whole place was great too. We all really had a wonderful time. I would liked to have some snacks foods available or a little more lighting in the restaurant. But neither of those thing are huge negative and didn’t affect our experience that much. Can’t wait to go back!

I always love my visit. The service that night was slow, but still very friendly. Have to say, I really miss Mark. His welcoming and in-character presence made it feel authentic. I think it would help if host and other staff dressed the part.

It was simply fantastic. The décor was so fun! I thought I had stepped back in time to the beach 1960s. Be warned the drinks are delicious but strong. I really wanted to try several different ones, but couldn't . Drinks are also very generous size. I plan to go back many times and drink my way thru the menu

It's hard to find a good quiet place to go, to relax and visit. This is it. The drinks were fabulous and the ambiance was perfect. We liked having to make a reservation with a 2 hour limit. It was not crowded. Everyone had a seat that was far enough away from each other that you couldn't hear others conversations. No food is served there so be sure to grab something before you go. The drinks are made stronger. Each person goes up and orders their drinks then they are delivered to your area. We highly recommend this place and will go back again. Also, its a nice place for any age over 21. You won't feel out of place.

I would have to say, just my humble opinion, in light of the fact, considering the possibilities, along the same lines, but not comparing to, dependent upon that table, and the size of the glasses, in conjunction with, all around, in all seriousness, we really had a ball.
