Always a fun place to hang out when in Waikiki... they have a seating area with a nice view of the Queen Kapiolani Park and the music is usually very good, with different entertainment options every day of the week. It is a gay bar but don't let this keep you from enjoying good music and cocktails with your friends... More

Was able to get seated quickly when sitting in the bar area. Service was very good as was the food. For ocean view seating, probably best to make reservations.

We chose this bar for its great view of the park and waterfront, and that it was an open-air setting. It seemed perfect. It took us a few minutes to realize it was also a gay bar, but it didn't make any difference while we were there. From what I later read, they have drag shows and other events that... More

We went there twice and I must say that the second nigh was better than the first (a Friday and a Saturday). Drinks are fine, the atmosphere so so and the music not very good. The place was not crowded, was quite relaxed both times. On Saturday there was a DJ who played the music she liked more than what... More

What a great place to have cocktails and meet friendly people. A beautiful view in an indoor/outdoor setting.The staff was fantastic, each with a unique story and great personality. We kept coming back from our daily tours of Waikiki. It was our first visit and made for memorable experiences. Raise a glass to the gorgeous setting sun!

My husband and I stayed at the Waikiki Grand which this bar is on the 2nd flr. To us a bar is a bar whether gay or straight . This bar has fantastic views and the food looks good, but we were only there for drinks. Unfortunately I felt not welcome. My husband went to the bar and his accent... More

After a wedding, we went to Hula's for a drink. We got bourbon soda, and got seated by the window. I have no idea what happened, but my glass just fell off of the chair by the wind. And the staff came to clean up the floor right away. I went to the bar counter to tell what happened, and... More

My friend and I loved coming here. Great happy hour specials. Nice view. Not far from the beach. Hot dancers. A nice chill vibe. We even made some friends. People were pretty nice and friendly.... Just like all over Hawaii.

Thank paradoxifl
