. 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.

A friendly neighborhood tiki bar! Pupus were tasty and there was a massive drink menu featuring rescued drinks from now defunct tiki bars. My only complaint was there wasn't a signature tiki mug for the location. If I lived near I would probably visit this place weekly, it's that good.

If you are a tikiphile this is a must visit, as it serves as the benchmark for tiki establishments. I had a 151 Swizzle and
my wife had the Pain Killer, both were exceptional. The decor, lighting and tikis are wonderful. Drinks are served in
authentic mugs and the service is very attentive.
