Maybe the oldest bar in Kailua Town, started in 1982. It has now developed into an uninviting watering hole in one of the best towns on Oahu, HI. Not even worth the time I'm taking to write this review, but I hope to help others from waisting their time and hard earned money here. A perfect venue if you enjoy the company of sloppy, drunk, middle aged men, droves of military guys, muffin tops, bikers, "wannabe" bikers, the rare younger crowd on a weekend and the regulars who frequently take up all the seats around the bar for hours. The decor is grandpa's basement style 80's nude, felt paintings of naked women everywhere and low lit lighting. With dirt, dust, stains, slime, grime, puke and urine smells flowing throughout as you enter through the plastic draped meat locker front entrance. Need some gum for the drunk drive home? Just check under your bar stool or table, ta-da! A couple of electric dart board games and a $1 a play jukebox take up the majority of the back of this small space. The bartenders are 50/50... Charlie (think that's her name) is below sub par, catering only to the regulars she knows will tip her well. The mixed drinks are ehhh, two choices of wines or bottled beers are the selection for beverages. They run the clock about 30 minutes ahead of time, so they can clear the bar early to go home. If it's last call I would NOT suggest ordering that last drink. You'll spend the money on the drink, but not be allowed to finish it. The hugely obese bouncer will waddle his way around the bar about 5 minutes after last call with a bus-tub, snatching drinks from customers hands and off tables. Not sure if all the bouncers do this, but it has happened almost every time I've been drug into this hole. So all in all it is just a dive bar, every town has one, so don't expect anything special from this one... especially good service. Although opinions are like ***holes, everyone has one. Thanks
