Just found a new Tiki bar opening in St. Louis.
I'm not affiliated, but thought you guys would also like to know. Should be opening in three weeks or so.

Sadly, I live 6 miles from this place and haven't been there yet. It's partly because I don't want to be disappointed. We have no tiki scene here at all, aside from what individuals have in their basement bars. You can see from the Yelp reviews that a lot of people who care about tiki are trying to be constructive in their criticisms: http://www.yelp.com/biz/tahaa-twisted-tiki-saint-louis

That reminds me of the Big Kahuna chain restaurants. They try to be tiki/Polynesian, but other than a few things on their food menu, and some really good tiki carvings, they fall flat in other areas especially drink quality. Yet we try to maintain a constructive approach to encourage them, and others, to bring more tiki.
Never give up the challenge and try to remain positive. A little tiki raises awareness better than no tiki.

Saint Louis Tiki Ohana is having our first gathering at Taha'a.
We're really trying to help the owners / management get better acquainted with tiki culture - including music.
Come join us. Friday, Sept 5, 2014 7PM at Taha'a
With much Aloha!
