1. Mai Tai Bar

Get your cocktails on

Our all-time favourite bar

Oahu is Hawaii’s nightlife central – and the epicentre of that is Honolulu. Mai Tar is one of its most heaving party spots, overflowing with people, particularly on the weekends, when the work crowd and the tourists get down together. Set on top of a mall, the bar is renowned for its cocktails, notably its eponymous shave-ice-style Mai Tai and lots of beer on tap. Cosy chairs, laid back people, live music and an air of celebration mean a great night for everyone.

Beer, beer and more beer

2. Humpy's Big Island Alehouse

Beer, beer and more beer

A pub in Kailua Kona, Humpy's Big Island Ale House is made by beer lovers for beer lovers. Add to that the fact that it’s right on the strip overlooking Kailua Bay, with its ocean breeze and divine views, and you have a friendly yet beautiful winner. The only stress you might face is, with over three dozen beers on tap and loads of different bottles, you’ll struggle to find your perfect choice. Or just try them all. With 3-hour-long happy hours, you can afford to do just that.

Neighbourhood pub in the tropics

4. Murphy’s Bar & Grill

Neighbourhood pub in the tropics

Sometimes you just want the bartender to pour you a drink and for you to pour out your soul. Murphy’s is the place to do that, an authentic down-home bar in downtown Honolulu, run by its long-time barman. Murphy’s is also home to the largest St. Patrick Day celebration in the Pacific, so if you like a little Irish with your tropics, this is the place to go. There is also great food, good company and an extensive bar with 16 unique beers on tap. Sláinte!

House party in the tropics

5. Bar at thirtyninehotel

House party in the tropics

Chinatown offers many outdoor spots to sink a few, but thirtyninehotel’s patio area is something special. An atmosphere that is, at once both exclusive and secretive as well as being warm and welcoming, has made it a hit with the crowds. Wooden benches and umbrellas mean it’s not at all pretentious but its hip, artful spirit gives it a serious trendiness factor. There’s also an intimate dance floor, a performance area and, best of all, $5signature cocktails!
