Humuhumu’s description:
Hale Pele is a tiki bar in Northeast Portland, owned by Blair Reynolds, who also has a home bar represented here in Critiki: Reynols Galley. Blair Reynolds has another claim to fame in the world of tiki mixology: his line of flavored syrups sold under the name B.G. Reynolds. The line of syrups is available for purchase at the bar.

Hale Pele opened in late August 2012, in a space that had previously held a tiki bar named Thatch. At the entrance, you cross a bridge past a small water feature, and are greeted by a large, sunken barthis allows seated bar patrons to be at eye level with their bartender. Behind the bar are a trio of large cannibal tiki carvings, these originated at Portland's Kon-Tiki and also lived for many years at the Jasmine Tree. At the very back of Hale Pele is the elevated Chieftain's Hut, a semi-private large booth, which can be reserved in advance.

The drink menu focuses on both classic tiki drinks and new creations. The bar has a small kitchen, so food is available in addition to the drink menu.

Street parking is available in the neighborhood.

The drinks are wonderful- there's an emphasis on drink history in the menu, and my friends thrilled to the thunder and smoke that would issue forth from the booths every so often. An impressive amount of carvings too. I had the Q.B.Cooler and was not disappointed!

So jealous of you Portland people! If I lived there I would be a regular. Was just there again for Tiki Kon 2015, excellent as always. My favorite drink there is the Lei Lanni Volcano, maybe on the lighter side, but it tastes sooo good.
