Tacoma’s Old Hangout is a Mixed Bag

Popped into this tiki bar on the lower level of the McMenamins Elk Temple in Tacoma. I love the decor in the Old Hangout and indeed it is a wonderful place to hang. There’s a really interesting set of decor pieces that come from different places and styles. Music can be all over the place.

I wish I could be as effusive about the Mai Tai, which had a strange taste from the orgeat and rums that aren’t particularly assertive. Locals tell me you’ll have better luck when working with a bartender in off menu cocktails.
