    Holy crap! What is this?! LA?! First thing that stopped me from even reaching the bar would be the sticky floor. I HATE that feeling... It's great that they don't have covers nor do they have a dress code, but dude, clean up the floor!

    There is no possible way to talk because the music was super loud. I was able to hear the music from miles away and I was walking from downstairs to up. Good luck coming here when you're sober because you are going to need a few drinks before you get into the crowd.

    Like your best friend's living room, this top-level bar at the Ala Moana Center mall is the place for pau hana (happy hour) drinks and pupu, plus live music and an all-ages crowd. If you're a football fan, it's also the place to gather and cheer on your fave NFL team.

    As most of my friends are now in California and my parents don't really "happy hour," it took me a long time to finally make it to Mai Tai Bar. I've always loved it, as its addition to Ala Moana Center has filled the place with the sound of live music, sports fans and happy revelers. The atmosphere is chill, the food is tasty and the drinks are well-made. The happy hour deals are also quite good. There's also free wireless Internet!

    I love this little social hub in Ala Moana and I'll return as often as I can!

    Mai Bar is an awesome spot! It's a casual spot...nothing fancy, nothing fake...just down-to-earth, great vibes all around. It helped that there was an awesome live reggae band...everyone was into it.

    This is my usual happy hour spot while shopping at Ala Moana. I like the discounted mai tais, calamari and onion rings from the happy hour menu. A rager at night, but chill during the afternoon. Great live music.

    Very local bar, I like the open air seating. There's plenty of tv's and seats. It does get packed in the evenings, special sports events, and weekends. It's a very lively place and often have live local music and contests. Very fun but does get super crazy.

    The hotel is beautiful and the bar makes a mean Mai Tai. Considering it's called Mai Tai Bar, you'd expect a decent rendition, and this place doesn't disappoint. The location is stellar and you get an amazing view of the beach.

    New Years Day open? - Yes
    Happy Hour, Cheap beer? - Yes
    Taco Tuesday, $1 Tacos? - Yes
    Perfect way to end a big shopping day? - Most definitely priceless.

    The tacos are smaller than D&B's tacos but much more 'authentic' and flavorful. Would choose these bad boys over D&B's taco Tuesday any day.
    Was also a touch cold since it was raining, but the cheap beer helped keep us warm (yes I know, scientifically, being drunk makes you lose heat faster).

    Take a break from the sun and get a Mai Tai at this famous bar. They really are the best in the world.

    Who would have thought, live music and a packed bar in the middle of a mall. Delicious blended Mai Tai, tasty garlic fries, and nice couches for lounging.

Description:

Located on the top floor of the beautiful Ala Moana Mall, the Mai Tai Bar, or simply Mai Tai's, is a constantly bustling bar set in a perfect location. This unique facility sits in the middle of an open air walkway that puts guests on display to the steady flow of mall-goers here. The location also provides a great breezy atmosphere that keeps things very cool. They are constantly being recognized as one of the top places in Honolulu to enjoy a few drinks. If you are looking to eat they have a number of meals to choose from, but unless you are just looking for a snack, you'd be better off checking out one of the many surrounding restaurants that are just about ten feet away from centrally located Mai Tai's. Bubba Gump Shrimp, Island Burgers, and California Pizza Kitchen, are just a few pre-party dining options you are afforded here. Whether you are stopping by for a quick drink after some shopping, or are settling in for a night of partying, the regular live music and pleasant atmosphere here make it one of Hawaii's best bars.
