Bonzer Front is the newest clothing boutique and wine and beer shop in the Honolulu neighborhood of Haleiwa. Owned by the daughters of a long-time North Shore couple (who own the neighboring Cafe Haleiwa), Bonzer Front sells unique clothing and accessories, as well as a broad array of carefully selected wines and beers (the best in town, actually). If you need a surf board, they even sell a surf board model called a "bonzer," hence the shop's name.

Inside, shoppers find a hip and funky atmosphere of multi-colored walls and mismatched, second-hand tables and shelves. Adorning the displays are an array of locally made and vintage jewelry.
Some of the most fashionable bathing suits on the North Shore are available here, and funky and unique clothing and shoes can also be found. A small dressing room allows for trying on items, and the owners - who hand select each item - are very helpful.

At the back of the shop is the wine cellar, a small room offering a huge array of carefully selected wines and micro-brewed beers. By the cash register, a selection of organic wines can be found, as well as a cigar cabinet. Ask about wine tastings and live music, which happen after dark throughout the month.
