Humuhumu’s description

Charming neighborhood bar that began a conversion to tiki in 2001 when it was purchased by current owners Dave and Rebecca Fernandez. Purple Orchid serves tropical drinks in mugs featuring their logo tiki that are available for sale. Purple Orchid periodically hosts parties to celebrate special events such as Halloween, New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day, by having bands perform on their small tiki-filled stage. Purple Orchid has two pool tables covered in purple felt, and a jukebox containing a few tiki-bar friendly selections, including APE's Jungle Sounds. The owners' Purple PT Cruiser painted with color-changing flames and the Purple Orchid can be seen around town. Be sure to visit the restrooms, which are papered with pages from Sven Kirsten's Book of Tiki.

I recently went back to Purple Orchid for a 2nd try and I would like to update my opinion of this tiki bar. Drinks were much improved over last visit. More of what i have come to expect from a tiki bar. Seemed like they have added more carved tikis as well. Also, i was able to buy one of their signature purple mugs, which has a really nice shape. Would go back and enjoy.
