Description: Rivals Sports Bar and UltraLounge was developed by owner Mike "ZO" Kawazoe as an alternative to the standard Waikiki bar. Mike's vision was to bring some class and sex appeal to Waikiki. By day, The Vegas inspired lounge provides Hawaii's most unique setting for watching any sporting event. When the sun goes down, Rivals transforms into Waikiki's premier UltraLounge, serving up handcrafted signature cocktails, domestic and craft beers as well as the state's most extensive whiskey collection. Always classy and never antiquated, Rivals offers up an atmosphere which lends itself to enjoying time with friends and socializing.

“Upscale atmosphere, friendly attentive service, many large tvs and great pizza.”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

We watched the a great game on numerous tvs with excellent picture quality in an upscale bar. Trendy, hip place that was far from pretentious.
They have several things on their menu, however on waitress steered us toward the pizza. They have it available by the slice which made me hesitant to try it. Wow! The veggie pizza slice was huge and tasty. My husband had the equally as good Hawaiian slice. Great flavor with chewy artisan crust.
Only draw back was no beers on tap....really in a sports bar? They did have a fairly decent selection of bottled beers that almost made up for it.
