We love Tiki Cat! The atmosphere is a chill, but fun. The drinks are so tasty and the bartenders are the kindest in the city.

This is the best tiki bar around! If you are searching for a fun, unique experience with great drinks and wonderful hosts, Tiki Cat is for you. Unlike many themed bars, this one goes all the way with decor, drink selection, and an intimate, fun, and friendly space. Don't hesitate! We are definitely coming back whenever we are in Kansas City.

We arrived for our 7:30 reservation at 7:25 and were told we had to wait outside even though our seats were available at the bar. The hostess was not very friendly or welcoming at all. She then told us that we have to order our drinks from the center of the bar even though we were sitting at the bar. For some reason this place doesn’t have a bartender for those seated at the bar? Then when we wanted to tab out...same thing we were told to get in line to pay the tab. Great drinks and atmosphere but won’t go back because of the zero service. All the female employees were very rude.

As expected, Tiki Cat delivered a fun atmosphere that was as much "secret speakeasy" as it was "tropical bungalow." The drinks were excellent, although expensive, but that made sense. The servers were wonderful and cordial, and it was a fantastic part of an adventurous evening.

I liked the feel of this place. I would definitely recommend to friends, but would most likely not return. The atmosphere was high energy, great décor and the drinks were spot on. Service was friendly, but limited. I was disappointed that we didn't have a cocktail server. Also not a fan of the time limit on the length of stay.

There is a reason TikiCat is my favorite bar in town. The staff is thoughtful and considerate. They take a personal interest in their regulars and always provide excellent service. The drinks are delicious and there are so many options for any flavor interest. It's the best place in town!

I absolutely LOVE this place. A group of friends and i went for my birthday we all sat at the bar and we had the best time ever! My most recent visit was for date night and it was equally amazing. We were seated in chairs near the bar. They were extremely low and uncomfortable. Really hard to get out of. I also felt like we were in the way of traffic as staff had to continue passing by to go behind the bar. I had to constantly move my feet or they would have to attempt to step over them. Other than the seating issue, our experience was absolutely amazing. We had a really good time and of course the cocktails never disappoint.

We had an awesome time although we didn’t stay our full two hours I had a blast!!! The luau I thought was kind of pricey at first but three of us shared it!! So at $12 a piece anyway it equated to the price of a single drink anyway so I don’t find that too shabby!! Our group had a blast thank you!!!

I feel like TikiCat was one of those places you have to try at least once. We're glad we went and we had a good time, but nothing that exceeded our expectations. We were very surprised that you could not get a blended drink at a Tiki bar. The majority of the drinks that we got were very strong, but not as fruity as I would have expected. You have to go up to the bar to order, which I thought was strange. There are also numerous rules posted and overall, we felt like the "exclusivity" was a little much for a bar in Westport. It really isn't anything I'm dying to go back to, but we still had a good time.

What a wonderful place to escape reality. You truly feel like you are going to an exclusive resort in the heart of westport. The host/bartend are super sweet, and actually want to have a conversation with you. Absolutely is one of my favorite places to go now!

As always, TikiCat is mixing the best drinks in KC. “Sky Juice” is my all-time favorite drink, and it’s consistently delicious. The ambiance makes you feel like you’ve stumbled upon something truly special and magical. My husband and I always come here to celebrate our anniversary, as it reminds us of our Hawaiian honeymoon that we reminisce about all the time. We will continue to go every year and any other chance we get!

The smell of the furniture was very off-putting and distracted us from the good drinks and service. Receptionist and bartenders were all great.

The review would like me to rate the food, however, this was a bar only. The drinks were phenomenal. I was the designated driver, so I had my drinks made virgin. There were quite a few options and I recommend the sky juice, the only thing it was missing was the gin and it was delicious without it. I can only imagine how great it would have been with the gin. The rest of my party had a great time trying out the different drinks, and only had good things to say about the tiki-Polynesian themed drinks. The atmosphere was lovely and I would definitely go back.

I love TikiCat I've been in before and always take friends when I'm in KC. The bartender wasn't very friendly and made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Maybe she was having a bad day. Either way I'll be back again.

There is no food, but that's not why we came to TikiCat. We heard from a friend of a friend of TikiCat and it's amazing atmosphere. They were not wrong. After entering HopCat and looking lost, we were directed downstairs to TIKICat. The plaque outside the door is cool, we loved having to ring the door bell, and wait for entrance. Our reservation was at the bar. We had a Mai Tai, a Daiquiri #1, a Front Port, and another delicious drink that I can't think of the name. We sat next to a couple that was actually visiting from the same area of Arkansas we were from, and they also had the same profession! That was a fun coincidence. Anyway, I love love love the bar. I loved the experience. The drinks were strong and so much fun.

Although, when we exited the establishment, the road had been blocked off and a metal detector was at each end. There were cops everywhere, which shocked us. We also weren't exactly sure how to get to our uber either.

this is the second time I've ever been here and I love it just as much as the first. The atmosphere is amazing though it's usually too cold. both of the ladies that were working that night were very very kind and really fun. The girl working behind the bar was very good at making drinks and both drinks that we ordered were phenomenal. I will be back soon!
