Traders' is an excellent place for drinks and cocktails. Also for dancing you'll be happy here. But - oh my god - is this a noisy place... close to impossible to have a conversation without having to scream it out.

Trader Vic's - the home of the original Mai Tai is always a fun place to go. The atmosphere is casual, they have good drink options, fairly priced and live music.
