Amazing place to spend an evening together with a group or another person.This is not a restaurant so I advise to eat something before coming in.It is a bar that serves only drinks and chips.They have very good drinks and reasonable prices.I recommend ordering the " Killer ". "Pain Killer" (1st photo) "Menehuna" (2nd photo) "Scorpion" (3rd photo)

Some Christmas and some oldies and Hawaiian music. My husband and I both started with a cream drink made with ice cream. OMG! My husband said it was the... More

Tiki decor, an outdoor seating area, great bartender and server. Also, the list is quite extensive, with drinks being sorted as to sweet, sour, coconut, coffee, ice cream. There are daily specials as well as happy hour deals. If only, they served food...

I went to Hala Kahiki for my birthday, and must say it delivers on so many levels. The drinks are varied, delicious, and strong. I particularly enjoyed the "Surfer's Blood," which is one of their "not so sweet" drinks. It also has a designation on the menu for being a strong drink, and they're not lying. Make sure to have...

A great place to come if you love sweet drinks and a fun environment ! They tend to have mostly rum based drinks at pretty reasonable prices . Also keep an eye out for appealing specials

Been going here since 1972. Best Polynesian drinks in Chicago and the small plates of food are perfect accompaniments. Best in summer, when one can sit with a Pina Colada or Mia Tai and our your favorite cocktail and take in the summer sunset or dark night air.
