A refreshing summer cocktail at Azure

Scenesters love this swank and breezy bar where the fish is as fresh as the vibe. We love the chilled Kona lobster. The Royal Hawaiian Resort, 2259 Kalakaua Ave., Waikiki, 921.4600

Beach Tree Bar and Lounge
Against oceanfront panaromic views
of the sunset, try the new Nahi Wai craft cocktail with Hawaiian chili infused Casamigos tequila, ginger sour and watermelon. Four Seasons Hualalai, Hawaii 72-100 Kaupulehu Drive, Kailua, 325.8000

Copper Bar
Live hula, sexy sunset views and cozy seating make this a top pick. Choose from a new sashimi and sushi menu, or try the Strawberry Basil Mule with ginger beer created in-house. Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, 62-100 Mauna Kea Beach Drive, Waimea, 882.5707

The Deck
You haven’t seen a sunset until you see the “pink diamond” dip into the horizon here. Live music and artisanal cocktails like the Hawaiian Cosmo make this a local favorite. Queen Kapiolani Hotel, 150 Kapahulu Ave., Waikiki, 931.4488

Each month, the chefs create a new Between the Bread sandwich for a hearty pau hana. Pair it with selects from an award-winning wine list. International Market Place, 800.3094

The Veranda
The open-air ambiance makes for the most chic experience with upscale pupus and a cosmopolitan craft cocktail menu. Indulge with the new Waimea Spritz with BarSol Pisco, Cocchi Americano and rosé. Kahala Hotel & Resort, 5000 Kahala Ave., Kahala, 739.8760
