Name:Tiki Tolteca (Pop-Up)
Street:301 N Peters St (above Felipe's)
City:New Orleans

Just wanted to let everyone know that New Orleans has a new tiki location: Tiki Tolteca!
Right now this is a pop-up that only opens on Tuesdays and Thursdays and occasionally some Fridays & Saturdays. They specialize in Latin American tiki drinks and tapas. They specialize in mezcal and pisco drinks as well as traditional tiki drinks.

OK I am going to say it, this is the antithesis of Tiki
but that doesn't mean it won't have good food or drink

Latin Tiki drinks? never heard of such a thing.

who wants to try it out & report?

Actually I've been and it's surprisingly delightful, and not just because New Orleans is tiki starved. The drinks are mixed well and are "craft" style, if you can imagine! They really did their homework and emphasize moai and other tiki from Chilean Polynesia. It's small and because it's a pop-up, they are limited to decor that can be removed but you'd never notice. I for one enjoy it and hope they do well! Here is a photo I took of our drinks from our first visit. We will be going back!

Tiki Tolteca is Closing in June To Beautify & Add Kitchen

Tuesday, May 13, 2014, by Gwendolyn Knapp

French Quarter tiki haunt Tiki Tolteca (above Felipe's in the Quarter) is closing in June for major renovations, with plans to reopen in July. According to booze whisperer Laura McKnight, the revamp will include "a kitchen serving Polynesian and South American-inspired dishes and a more tiki-ified look that includes a tiki hut over the bar."

Tiki Tolteca plans to roast (a la Comedy Central style) New Orleans' legendary grumpy barkeep/Broussard's Paul Gustings before closing. The free event happens on May 21 at 10 p.m. with "15-percent discounts on drinks and a special $4 Gustings Punch" made by bar manager Maxton Kennedy, who tells The Times-Pic that the bartender roasts will likely continue after the bar gets its facelift.
