Humuhumu’s description

The Inferno Room is slated to open sometime in 2017 in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis, in a building that previously held a Marion County courthouse. This is the creation of longtime tiki devotee Ed Rudisell, in partnership with his wife Sasatorn Rudisell and Chris Coy. The trio have a number of successful restaurants in the Indianapolis area. Rudisell aims to bring his passion for authentic mid-century Tiki to the city.
The drink menu and food menu will pay strong tribute to classic Polynesian restaurant menus, executed with quality in mind. The decor will play to the sense of danger and mystery in tiki, with a particular emphasis on fire. Rudisell is taking his time with the build-out, to ensure he can bring together the immersive space he desires.

We have been to about 30 Tiki bars in the last couple of years (Covid slowed us down), some in other countries. We’ve been working on Critiki’s top ten list, Tikicat, Three Dots and a Dash, Lost Lake, Foundation, etc. This is, hands down, our favorite!!! It’sTiki factor is off the charts! The entire place is decorated in REAL Tahitian Tiki’s. As an interior designer let me just say that this place is WELL DONE!!! Not to mention the fact that they REALLY know how to do tiki drinks and have awesome tiki music. Staff was awesome and the food was great, too. Do not miss this one!!❤️

Inferno Room is the best place to go for Tiki in Indiana and is a real contender for best of the Midwest. Drink are inventive, creative and delicious. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere is mysterious, engaging and just fantastic. This is a MUST visit if you a anywhere close.

Out of over 60 Tiki Bar visits, Inferno Room is in my Top 10. Drinks, music, staff and vibe...all exceptional. The ambiance of the place though is where they stand a part. Theming and design is so well done with lots of interesting and authentic Polynesian art throughout. What makes it even better? The owners did all of the construction themselves. The blood, sweat, tears and passion for this place truly show through the tapa. I find that more endearing and inspiring than some restauranteur throwing a bunch of money at a collection of antiquities and a build-out. If you are looking for the REAL deal, then here it is.
