Humuhumu’s description

Thatch was a newer tiki bar; it opened in northeast Portland in January 2007. It featured a sunken bar, booths rescued from a nearby original Armet & Davis Denny's, lots of bamboo, and of course, thatch. Some of the tiki decor came from the nearby Jasmine Tree

I loved this place! I honestly felt like I was in tiki heaven! Before i write my critiki, i would like to say that i went early on a monday night, so the experience on a busier night might not be as specatacular. With that being said ...
It's kind of in an obscure part of town from other Portland booze attractions, which would be my only critiki. The drinks were well balanced and yummy, perfect. The decor was really exceptional. My favorite being the many multi colored blowfish lamps. But what really made the experience was the pupu platter. It was a lot to share with two people, so I was so full! There was a great balance of fried food to grilled meats and several dipping sauces.
I would have to say this is my all time favorite tiki bar so far.

Just a quick follow-up note ... I was excited to get back to Thatch on a trip to Portland in the fall, but found myself wondering if I'd overrated it after my first visit. I shouldn't have worried: it's simply superb, even better the second time around. Get a couple of adventurous friends to go with you and drink a delicious Volcano Bowl. Surroundings are still exquisite, service is good, drinks are consistently outstanding. Sorry to report that the Michael Jackson painting seems to have disappeared, though.
