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.

This gay bar happened to be on the second floor of our hotel so we had to check it out. It was really fun and easy-going. Fantastic drink specials daily and lots of entertainment in the evenings. It seemed like a good place for locals and tourists to mix. Would love to return sometime!

We went in as a group for drinks, nibbles and to play pool. As we were 5 couples, they actually were quite rude. This is a gay bar, not advertised, which did not worry us all in the slightest, but found their predujice offensive as we most certainly were not concerned

A great bar with a great location - open air atmosphere offering an unblemished view of Diamond Head. Most nights offer live entertainment. Lee the waitress is very sweet and efficient. While many patrons are locals, a good number of tourists come from Australia and New Zealand.

Saw this place after leaving the Honolulu Zoo. We were unaware that this is a LGBT bar and dance club. No matter we had a drink but did not stay for any food. Great second floor views of Diamond Head. Phone charger cable near the bar seats was different. Drinks were good. Pitcher are available . Drink prices were better... More
