Like an ancient Tiki carving, it has history too: a recent transformation from the old Thatch Tiki bar to Hale Pale under the watchful eye of Blair Reynolds (known for his line of cocktail syrups). There couldn't have been a better marriage between Hale Pale and Lilkoi, which brought the little bundle of Hawaiian "crack" bread to the menu.
Sometimes you just need to hunker down in a tiki lounge (like when you check ticket prices for Hawaii and do the math and realize that's a LOT of Mai Tais), and this one will do, with its comfortingly kitschy decor, strong cocktails, and daily happy hour (5-6pm). They serve Sunday Brunch too--think grilled Hawaiian bread with guava jam, coconut waffles, and kimchi scrambles.
If you enter Hale Pele at five in the evening to the sounds of thunderstorms and a gentle rain falling off the thatched roof into the small pool displays at the front--you're in luck! It's happy hour. While it's easy for the cocktails (try the Jet Pack and the Boo Loo) to steal the show, their food menu refuses to take a supporting role. The noodles, vegetables, and meat dishes are all island-inspired, creating the complete tiki bar experience.
Love rum? Then head to Portland's best Tiki Bar! Delicious cocktails with all the fixin's. killer food and a newly added Sunday brunch and you'll never have to leave! Best escape for winter blues PDX could ask for!
