I went to Hawaii for the first time in about 7 years last week. Here are some bars you can visit.
Hau Tree - Beachside restaurant, both food and drinks great. Make a reservation though, it's not a beach bar. The beach outside is perfect so pack your swim stuff for after (as long as you're sober enough to swim safely).
Podmore - Special occasion cocktail bar with $30 show-stopper drinks (plus some regular ones). The occasion? You're on Hawaii, do it.
Heyday - Poolside bar in a motor lodge type hotel, retro. Sherry cobbler.
Wild Orange - A speakeasy/hidden entrance type place with great drinks, hip design, and vegan snacks.
I didn't visit but you should:
- Bar Leather Apron
- Skull and Crown Trading Company
- Pint + Jigger is reopening in December or January in a new location
Bars on Maui
Ester's Fair Prospect. Clarified milk punch, sherry everywhere, etc. A must.
Bumbye Beach Bar at the Andaz. Had a swell Mai Tai here.
The Pint and Cork. In a mall, hearty, flavorful drinks.
