A local staple for a casual afternoon drink or a wild night of partying with live entertainment, the Mai Tai Bar at the Ala Moana Shopping Center is a must for anyone looking to lounge with (you called it) a great mai tai - or any other drink for that matter. Located on the top floor with an ocean view in an open air space, the Mai Tai Bar boasts an eclectic mix of locals and visitors alike.
It's not all about the drinks though; the lounge also serves Pacific Rim-inspired food. From an avocado spring role to sashimi, you'll find unique, fresh and tasty dishes to perfectly accent the Hawaiian decor. Mai Tai also offers an impressive and regular lineup of live music acts, and it's especially favored by local sports fans for its array of wide flat screens. If you're in town during football or basketball season and can't miss that pivotal game, the Mai Tai Bar is the spot to go to catch it along with lots of other sports fans.
Located in the heart of Honolulu, Sunday to Saturday the bar with the great sunset view is open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and during NFL Sundays from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. The award winning, late night happy hour offers affordable tropical drinks and draft beers from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Live music includes Hawaiian music, reggae, acoustic artists, and various DJs of different styles. Dancing is welcomed at night, and the open layout is highly supportive of socializing and people watching.
