Hulas, wow , always a pleasure to visit, staff polite and efficient, great place to meet others and non threading environment when travelling alone. Drinks are very strong so you get a lot of bang for your buck. They also have prone chargers avail at the bar to charge your phone which i though was a good touch. Mahlo Hulas... More

I went there twice on my last trip in January 2017. Had the early bird chefs menu each time. What a stunning view of the ocean at sunset !!! Great place to eat, food good, drinks good, view is outstanding. It's just above Duke's bar which is impossible to get into it is so packed !

I visited Hula's and had the most wonderful experience with the staff and quality of the drinks. A great fun environment with live entertainment when I visited. Jack Law works so hard over so many years and hires such great people to help keep this place fresh. Don't miss it on your next visit, whether you are LGBT or not,... More

Hula's is always a must stop when visiting Waikiki. Nice atmosphere with a beautiful view of Diamond Head. The bar has an extra long happy hour and also serves delicious food.

Great gay bar conveniently located in the great hotel in which we stayed....or is it the other way around! Located on 2nd floor of Waikiki Grand Hotel, it has a wall of windows with views of the ocean, the zoo and Diamond Head. Wonderful breezes fill the bar. Bartenders were friendly and fast. The waiters, on the other hand, were... More

Always a fun place to hang out when in Waikiki... they have a seating area with a nice view of the Queen Kapiolani Park and the music is usually very good, with different entertainment options every day of the week. It is a gay bar but don't let this keep you from enjoying good music and cocktails with your friends... More

Was able to get seated quickly when sitting in the bar area. Service was very good as was the food. For ocean view seating, probably best to make reservations.

We chose this bar for its great view of the park and waterfront, and that it was an open-air setting. It seemed perfect. It took us a few minutes to realize it was also a gay bar, but it didn't make any difference while we were there. From what I later read, they have drag shows and other events that... More

We went there twice and I must say that the second nigh was better than the first (a Friday and a Saturday). Drinks are fine, the atmosphere so so and the music not very good. The place was not crowded, was quite relaxed both times. On Saturday there was a DJ who played the music she liked more than what... More
