. At the entrance, you cross a bridge past a small water feature, and are greeted by a large, sunken bar—this allows seated bar patrons to be at eye level with their bartender. Behind the bar are a trio of large cannibal tiki carvings, these originated at Portland's Kon-Tiki

. At the very back of Hale Pele is the elevated Chieftain's Hut, a semi-private large booth, which can be reserved in advance.
The drink menu focuses on both classic tiki drinks and new creations. The bar has a small kitchen, so food is available in addition to the drink menu.

Perfect little tiki bar! Absolutely amazing drinks and well appointed furnishings with some fun surprises. Appropriate ambient music and great service. This is Portland's full-on tiki experience.

Really enjoyed this tiki bar in Portland! Tucked away in an assuming section of shops/restaurants, this bar transports you to a tropical land as soon as you walk in. Dark and mood-lit, the atmosphere is perfect. Great drink menu and knowledgeable, kind bartenders. Loved the special effects and the bartenders’ expertise with the fire drinks! Fun atmosphere and great drinks = an awesome tiki bar. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in Portland!
