Seared Tuna Bruschetta ($15)

A friendly, casual oasis, Sunset Lanai Lounge sits nestled on the lobby level above the Hau Tree Lanai Restaurant in Waikiki. This cocktail lounge offers gorgeous views, exotic tropical drinks and delec-table fare including appetizers. It is the ideal location to bring the gang to kick back and relax.

Among refreshing beverages available at the lounge is the Mai Tai ($11). This award-winning drink is crafted with Diamond Head Rum, Bacardi Amber, pineapple juice, Orgeat, sweet and sour mix and Orange Curacao.

Meanwhile, an example of the delicious food served at the lounge is the Seared Tuna Bruschetta ($15). This item is made with diced Roma tomatoes, sliced avocado and basil, drizzled with a roasted garlic-wasabi aioli sauce.

The lounge offers its happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. featuring Maui Brewing beers for $5, house wines for $6 and pupus for $6. It is also open for late lunch from 2 to 4 p.m. and has live entertainment Thursday-Sunday from 6 to 9 p.m.
