We just moved here and don't know anyone. I could really get into a BBQ and half a dozen Suffering Bastards!

Yes, there are some good tiki folk in Portland. Plus the Tiki-Kon event in mid July;

Nice to meet you Handsome Dan,another Portlander here looking forward to Tiki Kon! You can usually find most of us hanging out at Thatch. We have a great bunch of people in the scene here.

I've been meaning to check out Thatch, haven't gotten down there yet. I also need to check The Alibi, but from what I've heard its mostly a karaoke bar. I drive by the Trader Vic's location every day on my way to work and it looks like its far from being done, of course I'm always driving by trying to squint and peek in.

Had to jump in here.

The Alibi does do Karaoke from time to time, but I've never witnessed it; I think it's only one or two nights per week. The times I've gone it's been pure relaxation and tiki enjoyment. I highly recommend visiting.

And - Welcome to Portland!

Alibi: awesome vintage decor, tiki drinks mediocre at best, and karaoke EVERY night. Go early, take in the atmosphere, and get the hell out before karaoke starts
Thatch: also awesome vintage decor, great drinks, and no karaoke or lottery games

Karaoke every night? Guess I've just been lucky to miss it.

Agreed - the drinks at the Alibi are just okay.

I'm "friends" with The Alibi on Facebook and everyday they seem to post something karaoke related, like karaoke drink specials or pictures from last night's karaoke shin dig, yuck.

On my way to Portland tomorrow (Sat 6/11)! From a previous visit, I agree with the assessments here on the Alibi. Great Tiki decor...



Lousy drinks and music. I won't even address the karaoke. I bolted for the door before they could even *think* about starting that. The Alibi would be amazing in the right hands.

But Thatch overall has the right vibe. Nice dark space, vintage Tikis, good mix of exotica/lounge music, quiet booths, good pupus and drinks that don't suck. I can't wait to get back.

I'm danlovestikis - Wendy my husband is wendylovestikis - Dan

I'd love to see a photo of you Handsome Dan just for fun.

At Elroyartspace in Portland there is a Tiki show going right now. You could meet tiki people there.

Portland, OR Elroy Artspace gallery is pleased to announce Scootiki: Mods & Gods , its second annual group exhibition of ‘Tiki Style’ fine art. This year is a curation of cross-culture icons: vintage scooters and Tiki – and offers some other significant changes and new features which are all unique in the world of gallery art, indeed!:

Cheers, Wendy
