The Party
While tony new condos are planned to rise throughout the city over the next few years, few are rivaling the excitement being stirred up by The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach. Case in point: O‘ahu’s most influential brokers gathered en masse to toast to the release of the haute property’s second wave of residences in its newly announced East Tower.

The People
A fashionable crowd of influencers filled the ballroom at Halekulani. (Iconic logos from Dior to Herm├Ęs were spotted all over the room!) In special attendance were entrepreneurs behind the project Peter Dupuis and Sid Landolt, who came in from Vancouver to personally share the exciting details with the crowd.

The Highlights
Passerbys would never have guessed it was a Monday night by the energy in the room. Multitalented scenester Christa Wittmier put her turntables to good use, weaving an infectious groove of modern tracks and throwback tunes. Also fueling the merriment were the sophisticated creations of top mixologist Chandra Lam Lucariello, like the Spring Fling with Absolut Citron, lavender syrup and Japanese cucumber. It was the perfect pairing to Halekulani’s multicultural repast. –Photos by Travis Okimoto
