Hula's is a comfortable and popular gay venue right in the Waikiki area of Honolulu. It is a short walk from the beach, and directly across from Honolulu Zoo. I found the lunch menu very tasty, the bartenders were friendly, and the nightlife bustling throughout the week. On the weekends it was even more happening, with large crowds hitting the... More

Hulas is a favourite drinking spot when in Waikiki. Gaycentric, this bar is a great gathering point with a good bar with reasonable prices, and a great view over the zoo and beach by day. With the windows sliding wide open the bar is airy and a great spot to catch up with friends or make new ones

This space is huge with an expansive view of beach and Diamond Head. Bartenders are friendly, efficient and very accommodating. Pitchers of Mai Tai and others favorites available. Live entertainment in the evenings, catamaran rides on Saturday available on line from Hula's. Food is delicious and a very interesting menu of small delicious dishes.

Don't miss the Saturday afternoon cruise! That is always fun, unless it rains. Hula's serves good food at reasonable prices. Check their website for specials and events.

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 !
