Although Kauai's south side town of Poipu is rich in gorgeous beaches and resorts, nightlife here is pretty low-key. Located inside Sheraton Kauai, Lava's is a casual but classy lounge perfect for an evening or late-night drink. Here, you can enjoy views of the sunset on gorgeous Poipu Beach along with handcrafted and unique tropical drinks.
Lava's isn't a raging nightclub or a place to find loud music. It's the type of classy lounge that offers a place to chat with other hotel guests or have a romantic date while watching the sunset. Dress up in preparation and match the resort elegance, or keep it casual. Either way is alright here.

Located near the resort's Ocean Pool and just steps from the beach, Lava's puts a Hawaiian-style twist on the traditional bar and grill. Signature cocktails include the mai tai, lava flow, frozen coco mojito and the kama'aina mango rita. Evening pupus ("appetizers") include light fare such as salads, nachos and a hummus plate.
Because it’s located inside the Sheraton, there’s a Sheraton drink of the day that changes daily. Happy hour at Lava's happens daily from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and a late-night happy hour runs from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
