Venue Info

Named after a pineapple plantation in Hawaii, this lounge nobly sets a high torch for Tiki enthusiasts. Replete with soft glowing hula girl lamps, blowfish-turned-light fixtures, wooden statues, and an outdoor oasis, it’s a shrine to all things Tiki. Choosing from the pages of their extensive beverage menu is an adventure. Should you opt for the impressive Hala Kahiki in a frozen pineapple (and you should), it’ll be hard to pace yourself before you hit the bottom. But then you can ask for a spoon to finish it off as a rum-drenched slushie.
