“Great Drinks, Great Jazz, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Highest recommendations for Lewers Lounge located in the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki. You'll need to dress up a little because there is a dress code: no beach wear, no open toe shoes, slacks and dress shirt for men and appropriate evening clothes for women. There is live music every night from 8:30pm to 12:30pm. You'll find the duo of husky voiced Maggie Heron on piano and Rocky Holmes on woodwinds most nights. But our favorite was Noly Pa'a on Sunday and Monday nights playing jazz standards, pop tunes, classical music, and requests on the piano.

The atmosphere is elegant without being pretentious. A perfect place to sit , chat, and listen to beautiful music. We found the mixed drinks to be among the best in Waikiki. Try a Pisco Sour or an incredibly alcoholic, but delicious Negroni, or a "James Bond" vodka martini. There are small snack plates including a lobster roll , fish fingers, and beef sliders, but the real attraction is the quality of the mixed drinks.

Sit back and mellow out. It may be the most relaxing and romantic thing you do in Honolulu.

This lounge offers after-dinner entertainment, nice jazz ensemble. Dress code strictly enforced, which is nice. A nice place to wind down after dinner.

“Pure Elegance!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Me and my Sweetheart had a drink at L' Aspartief' Lounge inside the Halekulani Hotel and the drinks were AMAZING!! Then into Lewers Lounge to enjoy some live Jazz what an awesome evening, everyone was impeccably dressed and the service and drinks were again amazing! If you do to Waikiki you must experience both lounges they are Incredible. Although the drinks are expensive, they are well worth it and a rare experience for most so, enjoy it...Fellas put on a suit and take your Sweety to this place, she will love it and You for taking her there.
