Humuhumu’s description

Hale Pele is a tiki bar in Northeast Portland, opened by Blair Reynolds, who also has a home bar represented here in Critiki: Reynolés 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.
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 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.

Decided to make a point of finding this delightful place on a driving trip from Calif, to Washington, and intentionally have enough time to enjoy a couple Tiki drinks before getting back on the road to my final destination.
A little difficult to find without a nav app tho.

Wonderful ambiance, and decor!
Staff was very attentive, in Tiki garb, and the drinks, were EXCELLENT! 40 plus cocktails on the menu, and Paddy the mixmaster was ON TOP of ALL of them! I had 2 of the House Exclusive drinks, from their 10 drink House exclusive cocktail list, and found them enjoyable.
Also had a plate of Mahi Mahi Tacos, DELISH!!!
I would MOST DEFFINITELY revisit again, on another pass thru Portland, and as my shortest trip one way is gonna be 180 miles, it will be a planned visit on the drive back south to Roseville Ca.
I would frequent this place if I lived closer!
