. At the entrance, you cross a bridge past a small water feature, and are greeted by a large, sunken bar—this 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

. 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.

Not sure yet what time, probably 7ish or 8ish, I'm guessing. The date may change, but Thursday seems the best bet right now.

This place was amazing! The vibe was perfect tiki even in the confines of a small space. The bartender was clearly an expert in tiki drinks and was so friendly and open to talking about everything tiki! This will be a must-go every time I visit Portland.

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.
