Fodor's Expert Review Happy Talk Lounge

The North Shore Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice
Want to sip an umbrella cocktail while you gaze at the original Bali Hai? Open on two sides, Happy Talk Lounge offers breezy views across Hanalei Bay to plush emerald mountains. If you think the scene looks familiar, maybe you’ve seen the film classic South Pacific, filmed here. The film version of Bali Hai is actually Kauai’s Mount Makana. Order a tropical cocktail and pupu (Hawaiian hors d’oeuvres) and enjoy a truly enchanting evening as the sun sets over the sparkling waters. Nearby Tunnels Beach (aka Haena Beach and Makua) is often called Nurses’ Beach, where Mitzi Gaynor sang about washing that man right outta her hair; Hanalei Bay is where Bloody Mary sang “Bali Hai.”
