Humuhumu’s description:
The Lava Lounge is not truly a tiki bar—it's mainly a beer joint, after all—but those who are into such places will dig the dim lighting, booths and music. I visited Lava Lounge probably a good half-dozen times before I realized that it does actually have some tiki to offer. The barback is supported by two carved tiki posts, and there are a few great old tiki mugs among the collection of jetsam & flotsam behind the bar.

From the late '70s through the '80s, this space was occupied by a bar called Hawaii West.

I really liked it but it was too dark to see all the smaller details of the place.

Was just there on Jan 23, 2015 and it looks like they now serve more than just beer.
