Humuhumu’s description

Paradise Club (or Club Paradise, depending on which sign you read) has been in business since 1954, with the same owner operating it since 1991. Drinks, once selected from the single tropical drink menu on the premises, are served in tiki mugs. Lauhala matting is used throughout. It reportedly has a bit of a dive bar feel, and caters to the area's robust Polish population.

Paradise Club now for sale. The bar is still almost totally intact from when it was Gene Kampís Island Home.

I noticed neither this business' Critiki page nor Yelp page has hours information. I took a chance to come check it out. Apparently, they are closed on Sundays! And open at 6:00pm other days. I took a picture of their posted sign, too. Accurate as of July 30, 2017.

Kinda awesome, kinda sad. Looks to have been a pretty great place, but attempts to move away from tiki is evident. Bartender is interesting and informative and a glance at the original menu is worth the visit. There are some great elements of tiki past in this bar and it is well worth a visit. Has a neighborhood polish bar charm as an added bonus.
