Humuhumu’s description

Lei Low opened in Houston's Heights neighborhood in late February 2014. The force behind Lei Low is husband-and-wife tikiphile team Russell and Elizabeth Thoede.
Lei Low serves drinks inspired by the historic tropical standards, but in their own modern style. Although Lei Low doesn't typically serve food, they do have occasional luau events.
A brightly colored mural of a tropical scene adorns the front entrance. Inside, the centerpiece of the space is a dramatic thatched A-frame structure behind the bar, which holds a collection of tiki mugs. There are a couple of vintage Witco pieces, and a few colored floats hang from the ceiling. There is seating in green booths, or on stools along the large bar. Tiki posts are found between booths and behind the bar. A grand peacock chair is near the entrance. Along most of the walls, the decoration comes in the form of framed art hung on framed pieces of lauhala matting.

We love Lei Low! It’s a nice chill tiki bar with delicious, high quality drinks served in fun glasses. It doesn’t look like much on the outside but you are truly transformed when you walk in. Nice bar to sit and chat with your friends. My only wish would be that they improve the back patio to make it look a little nicer.

What a great tiki bar! Friendly and welcoming, exotica music, great drinks, fun decor... it is perfectly Houston and perfectly tiki. No theatrics like Hale Pele or the Disney bars, but a wonderful place to get your tiki fix.
