I live across the road from here and come regularly for the music and decently priced cocktails. It has a great atmosphere but a very strict dress code. I was wearing a nice pair of shorts, loafers, shirt and a bow tie, but wasn't allowed in with my shorts!

This is a great spot for a drink in a luxury setting with excellent entertainment. It's nice to have this kind of place in Waikiki.

We recently came upon this lovely little nightspot after dining on the property. There is a great lounge singer who plays the piano and is accompanied by a very talented gentleman who can play just about every instrument. They plays lots of old standards which we enjoyed immensely. Now it probably wouldn't appeal to the younger generation (unfortunately) but for... More

From the glowing reviews perhaps my expectations were a bit too high, but I imagined something a little more lively than what I found. Friday night was very calm, but maybe I was there too early? It was really good for a couple if drinks. Bartender was attentive and kind. But then I was ready to try somewhere else. However,... More

This is a cocktail lounge for all cocktail lounges. Classy, clubby and sophisticated! Beautifully presented drinks. Great jazz entertainment,. Like something from a movie. Don't miss it if you are in Waikiki!

Intimate lounge area with relaxing music. Mixologist Joanna helped us with our drink choices and her recommendations and service were spot on. Had the poke tacos which were small but yummy. Really enjoyed our evening there.

Beautifully decorated lounge at HAlekulani with musical goups and pianists every evening. Crafted cocktails by famous bar man Dale DeGroff. A great place to unwind and end the day.

It was the last night of our 3 weeks in Hawaii and we'd had a disappointing dinner at Chef Mavro so we headed for Lewers Lounge for a drink and some nibblies and to listen to some quiet music. We'd popped our heads in about 2 weeks earlier following dinner at La Mer in the hotel and it looked like... More

Not really a fan of this lady who does the vocal and the piano here. She's quite boring (made me sleepy). She is not a jazz or blues singer. Wasn't really friendly either! I am used to listening raw and pure jazz or blues music. This one doesn't even come close to playing out in New Orleans! Also, the most... More

Outstanding, intimate setting for straight-ahead jazz, the best in Honolulu. Drinks are well made and the atmosphere is pure bliss for relaxing and enjoying friends and music.
