Humuhumu’s description

Porco Lounge & Tiki Room opened in Cleveland's historic Tremont neighborhood in October 2013. Owner Stefan Was let his passion for tiki lead him into the hospitality business. Porco Lounge is the first tiki bar in Cleveland since the Kon-Tiki
history

closed in 1976. Was used elements from the Kon-Tiki in the decor for Porco, including some lamps and bamboo from the restaurant. Also used for decor are Was' collections of swizzle sticks and tiki mugs. Was hired Shannon Smith to lead the bar program, bringing his background in craft cocktails with him, resulting in a menu of finely crafted tiki drinks.

Drinks here were really good. Well made and well balanced. Unfortunately, for me, the ambiance of the place didn't live up to the drinks. It really felt more like a college bar with the tiki theme tacked on. The hip-hop music didn't really help in setting the proper mood. Overall, I just felt the decor was a little strange and jarring. Some really great pieces of art hanging all over the place and some areas were really well done but then other areas felt like I was back in college, at a local watering hole, trying to get as drunk as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately the music was a big detractor from the otherwise great drinks and food! It is yet another one of those places that if they just embraced the tunes, it would be fantastic. The majority of the patrons seem to really want to 'escape' as many of them were wearing tiki garb and enjoying the well crafted cocktails, but the run of the mill 'bar music' made it feel like just another place to get an expensive (albeit strong and very good) drink. I definitely recommend going there once, but this was my second time and I think I will save my tiki tourism dollars for somewhere that captures the mood better.

Though it may look more "Bar that does Tiki" than Tiki Bar, the team at Porco's not only knows their stuff but loves the art of Tiki.

Great selection of high quality drinks, a lot of fun daily specials and even daily moods.

Weird music choices, I think when I rolled up right after opening there was a 30 minute interlude of music from the Road playing, but I think it was like Jukebox Shuffle Wednesday or something odd.
