“Fantastic Easygoing Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

I would highly reccommend anyone going to Rarotonga to go to Whatever Bar! It is very cruisy, relaxed bar and has great music playing after 9 at night! It goes off :) We wore jandals, shorts and singlets and it was no problem at all - just 'whatever'!!!
The owner Max is very friendly and is always up for a chat. Very reasonable meals and drinks ($5 double spirts/$3 singles)! Awesome times had & we will return :) Awesome views too!!!

had so much fun at Whatever Bar, great to be able to go to a night club wearing jandals and dancing under the stars!

“Happy Days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

This isn't rocket science - the name sums it up people. For drinks, a chat, awesome $5 burgers.....whatever man! Kick back, chillax, buy a singlet, make some friends and leave a memento for the bar – at least that was our experience during a recent 3 week island holiday. Enjoy the view and a brew and always order the double trouble ($5 double shot). Watch those stairs on the way down....

Whatever is truly an island institution. Consistently cruisy.
