Lot's of friendly people and customers in this bar. Small town of 15,000 at night where there is 87,000 during the day with lots of high rises on PCH. Prices are good and everyone can join and play a friendly game of pool or dance...More

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
