So, if you want a Tiki themed place to have some great rum drinks in downtown El Segundo, pull into the Purple Orchid. Plenty of parking in a city lot across the street, friendly staff, and rum. Ohoy.

Visited the Purple Orchid after dinner and had a ball. Great Tiki-type drinks, excellent service, and a pleasant environment. The Orchid also has a wonderful feeling of a local neighborhood bar. There aren't many like this anymore so I love to support it. You will...More

Nice place. The drinks were avg; very strong with cheaper liquor as it's base. So don't expect top shelf unless you ask. The bartender was lovely. You can request a bag of chips to snack on. The bathroom was always clean. And music was on...More

I recently had a happy hour beverage and food and it was very good. People were very friendly and lots of history in this place.

The place is dark and seems to be very old. It isn't. The tiki-bar vibe is deliberate and the default clientele more interested in drinking than chatting. Very much a locals bar, it may take a few visits to feel welcome.

Interesting place. Sometimes busy sometimes not. Crowd is youthful but not a college bar. Pool tables available, good service. Not on everyone's radar so don't expect too see the full hipster scene here (thank goodness). A 4-star on a good night.

Excellent tiki-style drinks in a club not far from the beaten path in El Segundo. Mai Tais are tasty as are Key Lime Pie martinis, and the atmosphere is a little funky, with a pool table and blowfish lighting. For food try one of the...More

We stopped there last night before heading out to LAX and enjoyed a few drinks while watching the NBA Finals. The bartender was very friendly and was generous with her pours. The place is a little on the darker side but I guess that's what...More
