No Holds Barred

Update your evening plans with a visit to one of these after-sunset destinations.

The bartender’s bartender, Christian Self shakes up Honolulu’s cocktail scene at Bevy.

1. Bevy
This European-style cocktail bar—owned by master barman Christian Self and girlfriend Timothea Lee—earns its hip factor with ’20s- and ’30s-inspired drinks from the speakeasy era. Self uses molecular techniques to create his unique lineup of beverages. Plus, starting Jan. 28, this hip oasis launches a late-night supper club. 661 Auahi St., Kaka‘ako, 594.7445

2. The Thirsty Wolf
Although located inside The Three Fat Pigs restaurant, Philip “Ippy” Aiona’s gastropub has its own menu with carefully selected draft and bottled beers that include Germany’s Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock and Angry Orchard’s Cider Beer. In true gastropub style, there are equally interesting food offerings—Portuguese-style chorizo charcuterie and even short-rib hand pies with smoked gouda. Kings’ Shops, 69-250 Waikoloa Beach Drive, Waikoloa, 339.7145

3. Japengo
At this busy West Maui destination, ease into the evening on the back lānai either at a high table or the round bar, taking in ocean views and breezes. Our suggestion: Arrive before sunset to enjoy Asian-inspired cocktails and handmade sushi, not to mention the live music. Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, 200 Nohea Kai Drive, Kā‘anapali, 667.4796

4. Eleven44
Having taken over the space previously occupied by BambuTwo and The Venue, this new nightclub and bar definitely has upped the decor factor, with intentions to become a destination for Chinatown nightcrawlers. 1144 Bethel St., Chinatown, 528.1144

5. Pueo’s Osteria
After heading the kitchens at Four Seasons Resort Hualālai, excutive chef and owner James Babian now prepares dishes at his own Italian bistro. His menu is filled with Italian favorites with island twists, including the kampachi crudo and pappardelle with Big Island wild boar. And in a welcome twist, this resto is open after midnight. 68-1845 Waikoloa Road, Waikoloa, 339.7566
