Humuhumu’s description:
This tiki-kitsch bar and limited restaurant is located at the base of Queen Anne Hill near the Seattle Center, in December 2006. Before becoming Hula Hula, this space was Watertown, and for many years before that, it was a nightclub called the Romper Room. Hula Hula is managed by the same group that owns the neighboring martini bar, Tini Bigs.

Hula Hula serves tropical cocktails and a short menu of pupus. The drink menu is filled with the expected names, like the Mai Tai, Zombie, Navy Grog and Shark's Tooth, but the recipes seem to have little relationship to the names (the Navy Grog, for instance, has pineapple juice). The walls and ceiling are lined with lauhala and bamboo, and some of the seating is in poolside-style lounge chairs.

I've been to Hula Hula a couple times and have enjoyed myself each time. I got their signature mug the first time I went and my tiki honey got their signature shirt. It would be nice if they actually played some tiki music and offered some other kinds of food though.

My first time there I was pretty impressed with the decore, good-sized puffer fish, 60's surf imagery and 50's hi-fi record album covers. I was lucky enough to walk in during the quiet time, as the sun was setting through the windows, so I had ample time to notice and appreciate the extensive decore, including the great authentic graphics inlaid in the bartop. I love their Mai Tai, but the Hurricane suffered a little from pineapple juice paralysis. They have a suitably classic logo of a bare-chested wahine on their mugs and t-shirts that's reminiscent of Trader Vic's in the 30's.

A little bit more modern than classic tiki but it is themed to be sure. The service at the bar was EXCELLENT. They even let us take home two AWESOME giant tiki mugs for free which was the absolute highlight.

Drinks were good and there was a nice selection. I would definitely go back.

Ha! I remember when this place was the Romper Room, when I was in college. They had 80's music dancing on Thursday nights..... Soooo long ago....

I went with my uncle this past summer and was really surprised to have such a "tiki" place in Seattle. Didn't get to spend a lot of time here..... Was flying out to HNL the next morning, and I couldn't really have as many drinks as I wanted, but I look forward to getting back to Hula Hula again next time I'm 'home' in Seattle! Bartender was nice, but a bit busy, so service was a bit slow....
