Ponchatoula, Louisiana, United States
TI-5335's Tiki Trooper Tavern is the home tiki bar of Ed Cook in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, just north of New Orleans. It was created in his backyard in September 2015.
The name comes from Ed's membership in the Star Wars costuming group, the 501st Legion, where he is known as TI-5335, an Imperial TIE Fighter pilot. The bar's backstory is that ace fighter pilot Kedex Bazzok, identification number TI-5335, survived the Galactic Civil War between the Rebellion and the Empire, and retired to a quiet backwater planet and opened a tiki bar, where he regales patrons with stories of his adventures. Scattered around the bar are mementoes of his service to the Empire, as well as tiki idols and local flora.
