10 Best Hotel Bars in Honolulu Offer Sunset Cocktails, All-Night Partying

Honolulu's bars are some of the hottest places for drinks on the island. Although Honolulu hotels have always housed the classic resort lounge, but in recent times many have evolved to make a home for clubs that rage all night long. So in Honolulu hotels you have plenty of options from places for romantic sunset cocktails to places to dance and drink until the wee hours of the morning.

Whether you're staying on the North Shore or just spending a day at the beach, drop by Turtle Bay Resort for North Shore action and head into the resort's Surfer, the Bar for late night live music and DJs.

For a mix of gourmet cuisine along with drinks and a classy bar atmosphere, RumFire in the Sheraton Waikiki is one of the most popular bars on the island. Another tried and true bar renowned for blending good food and drinks in a fun atmosphere is Duke's Canoe Club in the Outrigger Hotel. This is a Hawaiian staple, popular with locals and visitors alike. You can just enjoy a mellow dinner, or hang late and dance. Those in search of a modern sleek atmosphere will enjoy Mac 24/7 in the Hilton Waikiki, where a unique blend of 24 hour comfort food is offered along with great drinks.

So enjoy the convenience of a great bar in you're own hotel, and put our list to use.
