In honor of National Tequila Day, we’re bringing you a list of the best bars within walking distance of our Waikiki properties. While there are plenty of fun night-time hangout spots to choose from throughout Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, these ones are right in our neighborhood, where you can enjoy the Hawaiian breeze and a short walk back to your comfortable condo.
Cinnamon’s at the Ilikai
While Cinnamon’s is famous for its breakfast (especially pancakes), the restaurant also has a full bar outside, overlooking the beautiful yacht harbor. After a day in the sun and sand, this is the most convenient and relaxing place to stop for a tropical treat. Their pina colada is a delicious way to to wrap up the day and start the evening.
Sarento’s at the Top of the Ilikai
Many of us love to dress up and go out to a nice dinner or cocktail hour at least once while we are on vacation. If you are staying with Marina Hawaii Vacations, Sarento’s is the spot. Aside from their gourmet cuisine, they have a full bar to make your happy hour even happier as you gaze out over the Pacific Ocean from the very top floor of the Ilikai.
Just below the Ilikai Marina, this nautically themed pub is a cozy spot to enjoy dinner and a brew, or to take a break from the warm sun. The pub is family-owned, and casual with plenty of American eats; it’s the perfect place to rest after a day on the harbor!
Just downstairs from Discovery Bay, and across the street from the Ilikai and Ilikai Marina, this restaurant and bar is the perfect spot to catch a sports game. It is known as a Green Bay Packers bar, so if you’re a Bears fan it may not be the place for you. Regardless, Snapper’s has a great atmosphere with typical American grub and drinks galore!
Mai Tai’s at Ala Moana Center
While you’ll have to walk further than just down the stairs, this fun bar is still under a mile from the Ilikai, Ilikai Marina, and Discovery Bay, and it is well worth the walk. This outdoor bar is a great place to meet locals and tourists alike, and there is awesome, local live music on the weekends. Look no further for an authentic and festive Hawaiian hangout.
There are other bars and bar/restaurants within walking distance that are worth an honorable mention: The Study Bar, Addiction Night Club, Tropics Bar & Grill, Chart House Waikiki, Morimoto Waikiki, and Buffalo Wild Wings. Happy National Tequila Day!
