Lei Low, a tiki bar in a North Main street strip center, blends the husband and wife team of Russell and Elizabeth Thoede's passion for tiki culture with a space that transports patrons to a tropical island — or, at least, a tropical island with a healthy dose of post-World War II kitsch.

The drinks mix fresh fruit juices (the bar goes through a staggering amount of pineapple every day), with house-infused rums and complimentary spirits to create cocktails that are boozy but also complex. Theme nights and a backyard patio further enhance the atmosphere. Places like Voodoo Queen, Under the Volcano and Double Trouble may have tiki elements, but none have so thoroughly embraced the concept with such delightful results.
