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.

The Lava Lounge is what I like to consider a "punk rock Tiki bar" It's pretty much a punk bar that happens to have a Tiki decor. I'll be honest, I don't really think they serve any Tiki cocktails but the bar is very dark and people that frequent the Lava Lounge are usually laid back.
As I said before, the Lava Lounge is a punk rock bar so punk rock is what your going to hear. That is totally cool with me because I'm a punker myself!
I have to give props to the Lava Lounge just for being around still! Seattle is growing and changing right before my eyes. I'm glad to see that a bar that I loved going to over a decade ago (when I first moved to Seattle) is still here!

This is my full review of The Lava Lounge:

This place is like 30% tiki, 70% dive bar. Definite potential and has some charms like lamps in the booths and shuffleboard. They have a decent selection of rum, but no indication the bartender knows anything about tiki drinks. I ordered a Bacardi/Diet Coke :-/

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