OH--and if you like a good Rum Barrel, their Chief Lapu Lapu fits the bill nicely. Really, really tasty drink served in one of their big "Chieftain Goblets." 151 Swizzle is in the metal cup, also delicious. Not sure if they do reservations (probably not). Can't recommend the place enough, it really is great

Much appreciated! I think we'll have a good time. My friend is going for a tattoo convention; his artist is entering him. After the con is over for the day, we'll be heading over for some good stuff-- and it looks like the route is easy, just down MLK and over on Broadway.

Yeah, easy to get to and the parking is not terrible. Sounds like an awesome road trip!

A couple of notes from a "local":

HP opens at 4 pm Fri-Sun, so if you can get there that early you're guaranteed a seat at the bar. I love sitting there because I like/admire watching Mindy & Paddy work their magic...and because I can stare at the giant wall of rum behind them.

If it's fire you want, both the Jet Pilot and the Volcano are served flaming. Ordering a Volcano will get you the full smoke & thunder etc. experience. (The thunder & rainstorm happen at the top of the hour.)

As far as souvenir glassware, you've got 4 choices: the Hale Pele mug in two different colors, a Mai Tai glass and a rocks/Old Fashioned glass. (You can also buy the B.G. Reynolds syrups at the bar, and remember, no sales tax here!)

And lastly, while the drinks are top-notch, the food is also excellent. At Happy Hour you can fill up on deliciousness while saving $$ to be spent on the drinks.

I think we all like watching Mindy.

Before I head down to Portland, does anybody know where there's a copy of their drinks menu? Their web site is broken.

Thanks for the advice! If any TCers are at Hale Pele tomorrow afternoon/evening, I might see you. I suspect I'll be the only person in there wearing a suit jacket.

Hale Pele Drinks

Let me know if you're still unable to peruse the site, there are now 8 unique drinks on the Happy Hour menu as well. And thanks everyone for the kind words!

The trip to Hale Pele was quite the success. Barely anybody in there, we arrived at opening Friday. We tried the Passion Fruit Batida, Jet Pilot, 151 Swizzle and Three Dots & a Dash, all wonderful. The tenders assisted my friend in trying some new rums, and the atmosphere was first-rate, too! My friend loves raw tuna, and the tuna poke was just okay, but the rest of the food was tops. (Had better poke the next night at the Driftwood Room, Hotel DeLuxe.) Thanks to all who advised me!
