Nice place, expensive drinks – I went 6/06/09 and got a double rum and coke and asked for house rum. Got my drink about 15 minutes later and was asked for 10.50.
While the rum was far superior to any house rum I have ever had, it was also the second most expensive rum and coke I have ever had.
If I had been flush with cash, and in the mood to spend it, I think I would have enjoyed myself a lot more.
Hula Hula – I go to this bar quite often, once sometimes twice a week. One particular bartender sort of takes away from the experience.... she's good looking, a great singer (she partakes in karaoke) but customer service is definitely not her forte. When a customer ordered 4 kamikazes, she replied, "No" and asked him if he was really ordering that from her (seriously). I have heard of the rockstar bartender persona and have worked with more than a few people who fit the bill. But the fact is, she is a bartender. When someone orders a drink from the bar, she should make it, no questions asked, no matter how difficult or annoying it is.
My little Oasis – I recently attended a party with a group of my friends there. We couldn't have been treated better, our server was very attentive, drinks were made with the right balance and our food ranged from a "grilled flatbread" to our Kahlua Pork sandwich, to finally the first time I've snacked on Plantain chips. YUMMY!
Their Happy hour is very reasonable, $3 drinks and $4 dollar appetizers. I'd recommend their Mai Tai since they are a tiki bar (was delicious actually), The Chi Chi, and my last one was the infamous Volcano bowl which I shared with my other girlfriend. Both were fun, different and "filling" to say the least.
They are very accomodating for group reservations I've learned, since I'm going to hold my Birthday party there soon.
I liked it alot, definitely reasonably priced and a very fun atmosphere to socialize in.
The Best Mai Tais and Decor – I love this place. Drinking Mai Tais and sitting on the chaise lounges while looking at the Black Velvet Mural and playing our favorite music on the Jukebox. Does life get better than that? Hula Hula puts Trader Vics to shame. It is much more kitchy and much less corporate. I want to take a pufferfish lamp home with me.
Great Hideout! – I was with some friends and walked by a few times before seeing they were open.
I was impressed with the decor, the staff was familiar to me and it just felt right.
I has some pupu's, was crazy about some, some I could do without.
I think it has alot of potential, lots of space to hideway with friends and will
definitely keep going back for the great cocktails. My service was fine, friendly, casual
and good to see something not trying to be Uban Chic.....
Recommends *Ahi Tuna*

Drinks: Mai Tai, Volcano bowl (for two), Scurvy bowl, and the Tower of Power (Beer column thingy)
A South Seas paradise even on the rainiest days at this retro-kitsch tiki bar from the owners of Tini Bigs. – In Short
Don Ho would definitely feel welcome in this kitsch-drenched lounge, which offers all the requisite elements of a good Polynesian bar: Puffer fish lamps, thatched grass huts, bamboo accents, beach loungers doubling as benches and plenty of wooden tiki god statues. Drinkers can go traditional (think mai tais) or pick a contemporary cocktail. Pairs will dig the Volcano Bowl, a lava red concoction that easily serves two, anchored with a flaming shot of Barcardi 151.
