2733 NE Broadway, 503-662-8454, halepele.com.

A faux-Polynesian fever dream rigorously appointed in layers of vintage South Pacific kitsch, this tiki bar was recently named the nation's finest. And though Hale Pele's more than just a novelty act, the occasional simulated monsoon never hurt anyone. Explore a cocktail culture long on citrus, rum and fire, grab a Jet Pilot ($14) at the sunken bar or chieftain's hut and await the volcanic eruptions.
