Hawai’i: Rum Fire

F1000023 - Version 2
Duke’s and Mai Tai Bar are the two big bar destinations in Waikiki. They are historic and also rather annoying. Duke’s is fratty and irritating. Mai Tai bar matches high end cocktails with higher end prices.
At the Sheraton Waikiki, just down the beach from both, you’ve got Rum Fire. Tammi and I came on it by accident, but found it to be the best place to grab a drink, take in the sights and see the sunset in the whole area.

I don’t even remember how many times we ended up there. This is where we discovered our Japanese bachelors and some great fish tacos, not to mention a wonderful view of the beach, the sunset and Diamondhead.
Here’s the funny thing, through my habit of geotagging, I discovered that four years ago, Tammi and I hung out in the same place. Hotel development being what it is, the space was totally different, but when I tagged the bar, I discovered it was the exact same space that we ended up spending most of our last day in Hawaii four years ago as Tammi knit and we relaxed over drinks.
