Looking for something to do this weekend? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Thursdays mark Wahine Night at Trader Vic's.
The idea of Zombies, Cherry Bombs and Suffering Bastards might not ring "romantic," but the creatively named cocktails, Polynesian decor, and lounge atmosphere at Hotel Valley Ho's Trader Vic's make it a great date spot.
And on Thursdays, aka Wahine Nights, ladies get half off everything on the lounge menu.
What we loved: The Polynesian decor, smooth tunes and exotic drink specials give the bar a bit of a fancy vibe. Fortunately, that does not extend to the drink or meal prices on the happy hour and lounge menus.
What we didn't love: The Wahine Night deals only last so long. Ladies have to start paying full price after their first two lounge menu items.
Would we go back? Alone? No. With a date? Definitely.
