Hi fine folks of Tiki Central,

with my third user name on tiki central (formerly tikimonkey/trader tiki), I'm proud to announce my latest venture, coming this fall to Portland, OR.

Thank you all for your support over the years, and for the years to come. I look forward to welcoming you to raise a glass or share a volcano bowl.





Okole Maluna!

Way to go Blair! That little tiki bar is in very good hands. Time for me to start planning another Portland trip I guess...

Continuing my pattern of blissful ignorance...

Is this The Bar Formerly Known As Thatch?

Congratulations, this is great news. I'll plan my re-visit to PDX for *after* the opening.

Congrats on the new place! I'll be in Portland around July 4th. Will Hale Pele be open by then? I sure hope so, I would like to visit.

and the full text of the press release... it's a bit more exciting than an e-mail sign up form and logo.

Portland, OR – This Fall, Portland’s newest watering hole Hale Pele will open with a bevy of tropical wonders for its patrons.


Located on NE Broadway, in the former space of Thatch Tiki Bar, Hale Pele will offer a list of classic exotic cocktails made with the finest ingredients and craft methods, as well as a list of “New Wave Tropicals”, featuring modern spirits & liqueurs. Paired with these world class drinks will be an all new robust contemporary food menu.


For over a decade, Hale Pele owner Blair Reynolds has been passionate about tropical cocktails. Founder of locally made B.G.Reynolds' Hand-Crafted Syrups, Blair Reynolds has created specialty tiki menus for bars in the Pacific Northwest, and lectured at Tales of the Cocktail, Portland Cocktail Camp, and the Great American Distillers Festival. Blair has contributed to several cocktail books, and served as an expert for Imbibe Magazine.


As a long-standing member and officer in the Oregon Bartenders Guild, Blair will bring a commitment to the consistency of the cocktails, using the freshest and highest quality ingredients and spirits available. “Too long has the word tiki been associated with bright red and pink drinks tasting of artificial coconut. Bringing in my years of research and study, I hope to serve Portland the best of tropical drinks both past and present,” says Reynolds.


Hale Pele will also include the great décor you’d expect from a world-class tiki bar, with interactive features, dancing waters, and other wonders from exotic isles. “I’m inspired by the unique décor of tiki bars from times past, and want to bring a bit of the novel fantasy of that bygone era into an exotic, yet welcoming environment. There is a story behind the setting, some of which will be revealed and some hidden. But beware of uncovering the mystery, lest you incur the wrath of Pele!”
