This is a Tiki treat for anyone in the mood to party. Downstairs Aloha party room is where you go to dance off the Zombies and Mahikis, while the upstairs Lanai Lounge is where you go to recharge with an organic Polynesian drink and a hookah. (Do you see the delightful cycle perpetuated by these two floors?)
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Stylish party clothes that not only flaunt your assets but also allow for some serious fun
GO HERE WITH
More girls than guys–this is one of those places where the male:female ratio is a factor at the door.
Dancing crowd is primarily 20-/30-somethings, but the overall crowd comes here for festivity, no matter what the age.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The kitsch is good, the dance tunes are great, and the hookahs are smokin’! It’s Trader Vic’s for the 21st century.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Enlarge the Aloha dance floor. It can get a bit tight with everyone strutting their stuff.
GOOD TO KNOW
Aloha Party Room is for dancing downstairs, Lanai Lounge for lounging upstairs. A-listers as well as royals have been known to stop by. (Keep your eyes peeled: Prince Harry might be rocking out next to you.) Majority of fruit used in the delicious Polynesian concoctions is organic.
