Fodor's Review

Hawaiian bars should have two things: stellar views of the sunset over the ocean and equally awesome mai tais. Both are on offer at the Waiolu Ocean View Lounge at the posh Trump International Hotel. It's one of the few places you can get absinthe served in the traditional drip. There's live music, ranging from contemporary to Hawaiian to R&B, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, with an attractive crowd showing up around 8 pm. It's busy but not suffocating, and seats are scarce once the music starts at 7:30 pm, so reserve a table in advance.
