Flaming lime shells? Check. Bamboo hut rafters? Check. Hulking carved tiki gods? Check. Simulated rainstorms? Check. The creation of cocktail enthusiast Blair Reynolds, Hale Pele is an unlikely oasis in a weird, suburban sector of cloudy Portland. Home to all of the tiki kitsch one could ever wish for—there are orchids, Polynesian lanterns and the occasional lei—alongside a long list of surprisingly balanced tropical drinks executed by skilled bartenders, this is the place to escape those soggy winters.
