I was surprised to find a place with Buzztime trivia rather close to the hotel. Great beer selection and better than average pub grub.

Rivals Sports Bar and UltraLounge was developed by owner Mike "ZO" Kawazoe as an alternative to the standard Waikiki bar. Mike's vision was to bring some class and sex appeal to Waikiki. By day, The Vegas inspired lounge provides Hawaii's most unique setting for watching any sporting event. When the sun goes down, Rivals transforms into Waikiki's premier UltraLounge, serving up handcrafted signature cocktails, domestic and craft beers as well as the state's most extensive whiskey collection. Always classy and never antiquated, Rivals offers up an atmosphere which lends itself to enjoying time with friends and socializing.
