This Tiki bar in The Heights provides a cool, calm atmosphere with tropical decor and elaborate rum-based mixed drinks that will make you feel like you are on vacation. Created by the staff, these drinks look like works of art and taste good too, with colorful names to match like Polynesian Rainbow, Shipwrecked On Tiki Island and even Balinese Room # 2 in honor of the legendary Galveston nightclub in Galveston immortalized in song by ZZ Top and washed away by Hurricane Ike. The music here is exotica, Hawaiian and reggae, plus whatever the DJ playing eclectic vinyl records on Tuesday nights wants to spin. Wednesday nights, a local musician plays Hawaiian lap steel guitar for your listening pleasure. The owner says he has been fascinated with Tiki bars since childhood, so he created a fantasy world of his own here. The little patio out back keeps the escapism going. Recently opened, Lei Low lies on a stretch of North Main currently under construction; look for Joe’s Food Store next door so you don't pass the place by.
