      Cheap, nice breezes but no scenery
      Tapa's is an upstairs lanai bar where you can be thankful for the tropical breezes, esp. if you're drunk. :) It is adjacent to a restaurant that I want to try one day. There is an area just off the bar with tables and chairs, high top tables and stools, also 2 video screens. I was there 'round midnight on 10/5/17 and there was a mixed crowd--I say 'crowd' but it was pretty quiet for a Thurs. The lanai overlooks an alley but I didn't get a whiff of anything stinky. I paid $4.50 for a rum and coke. The bartender was nice, but security guy yelled at me for trying to leave by the restaurant door. Not sure if I would go back or not.

      Really friendly bartender and customers
      Went there on November, 2010 in the afternoon, this is the only one gay bar that I visited in Waikiki. It's really nice. Bartender is friendly as well as customers. Stayed there for two hours; I'm already in love with this place. I'm working on relocating to Hawaii and would go there often.

      Fortunate find.
      I found Tapas by accident, since it was the closest bar to my hotel when I arrived. I only saw locals there, which is a good sign...The drinks are inventive, reasonably priced and strong; the jukebox is decent; and it is actually fairly well soundproofed, so you can sit at the bar or on the lennai and not suffer if someone is butchering a karaoke song. I just moved here, and it is my new favourite pub. The staff is friendly and heckle their regulars mercilessly.

      Off the Beaten path
      Not Really, right in Waikiki behind Fusions, good local spot, friendly staff, small but a good place to go with friends, or meet new ones. Prices are good for Hawaii, and not a lot of tourist.

      needs some serious renovations before the restaurant is to be taken seriously - some clean up and paint would help

      Same block as Fusion and Angles
      Friendly enough bar, around the corner from Angles and Fusion. This place is also a restaraunt, we did not eat there. Bar is upstairs, entry is around back side. Drinks are good, priced reasonably, its more of a sit down stand around kind of place where it seems friends gather to enjoy one anothers company. No dancing, its an open bar meaning that its not enclosed completely so you get the breezes when they are flowing.It seems thay have Karaoke but was not happening when we visited.
