Humuhumu’s description

The Lava Lounge is not truly a tiki baróit's mainly a beer joint, after allóbut 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.

A dive, but it holds a soft spot in many of the locals hearts. Pro tip: Donít ask for tiki mugs to purchase unless you want to receive a very large quantity of side-eye
