Humuhumu’s description

The Lava Lounge is not truly a tiki baróit's mainly a beer joint, after allóbut those who are into such places will dig the dim lighting, booths and music. I visited Lava Lounge probably a good half-dozen times before I realized that it does actually have some tiki to offer. The barback is supported by two carved tiki posts, and there are a few great old tiki mugs among the collection of jetsam & flotsam behind the bar.
From the late '70s through the '80s, this space was occupied by a bar called Hawaii West.

We made a special trip into Belltown just to go to Lava Lava Lounge. The place was pretty much empty but it was a Sunday night. There is no table service so I ordered a Mai Tai for myself and a Shark Attack for my gf. We took maybe three or four sips out of our drinks and left. They were not good in the least. Strong yes but tasted horrible. Wouldnít be returning. A few tikis on the wall and a painting of a shark but I would not call this a tiki bar in the least

A dive, but it holds a soft spot in many of the locals hearts. Pro tip: Donít ask for tiki mugs to purchase unless you want to receive a very large quantity of side-eye
