drinks at fire pit? [oahu]
trying to figure out pau hana friday/night spots lounge to check out..
i used to hit up mai tai's (ala moana location, but alas i feel like i've gotten too old for the crowd)
then there was oceans and row bar (closed and last that i heard, pretty not0-happening), and dave & busters, and brew moon.
and indigos, next door, etc...
but alas, i feel like i've gotten too old for most of those joints (we're on the other side of 30)
i dont want too touristy, but i've heard firepit (sheraton waikiki) in waikiki is decent? and my local friends say that they've gone there, despite being anti-waikiki... i also may want to check it out for our upcoming wedding to see if i can recommend it to our oot guests...
how are the drinks there? any other place you can recommend for good drinks?
i don't like zanzabar or w (TOO TOURISTY) and i don't like pipeline (too young). not into senor frogs or yardhouse, 'cause they are chains...
i'm bummed that i miss first fridays yet again.... ugh...
much mahalos in advance =)
I just went to rumfire at the Sheraton a couple of weeks ago. Hmm... I don't know if I can really recommend it. The feeling I got was "once was enough". Cocktails for $14 that don't taste any better than one that's $5 aren't a big draw. The setting is nice though, with the great ocean view. The crowd was mixed, w/ locals and tourists of all ages.
Are you looking only for mixed drinks?
If it's just beer..... the Kona Brew Pub in Hawaii Kai is a nice place to lounge (especially at the bar area).
I actually like the upstairs pool bar at the Hyatt - much calmer than most Waikiki hotel bars, as on the 2nd story, they usually have good music, and it's relaxing with a great view & yummy mango daiquiris (I obviously don't have a broad cocktail sense, but I do remember the wine menu is rather weak...)
alas.. we didn't go....
the night we were gonna go, they were charging a $10 cover. and so a $10 cover on top of the drinks, and we weren't gonna stay long, we opted for mai tais royal hawaiian (although i prefer the ala moana location better)
we picked mai tais 'cause we were only there for less than an hour...
