Into the Skyline

| November 24, 2015 | Parties

THE PARTY Anticipation was high when it came to the grand opening of SKY Waikiki, the second rooftop bar to open on Kalākaua Avenue. Needless to say, when the doors opened, there was much that impressed: a high-energy vibe on the inside and spectacular views of the beach and Diamond Head outside. THE GUESTS The entourage of Honolulu scenesters—notably including beauties and former Miss Hawaii USAs Angela Byrd and Moani Hara—certainly stood out. Stylishly welcoming guests were SKY Waikiki Managing Partners Alika Mau, Jovan Andow, Darren Seu and Kainoa Akina. THE HIGHLIGHTS For this opening act, the sky truly turned out to be the limit, as the Red Bull Sky Divers literally descended upon the fete. Fueling the party were smart libations created by Jen Ackrell, head mixologist from sister spot Top of Waikiki. Foodies had much to enjoy as well, noshing on bites by top Honolulu chef Lance Kosaka. After all, who else could come up with ingenious bites like an ‘ahi and tofu panna cotta salad? –Photos by Travis Okimoto
