On arrival on my first visit I was rudely yelled at by the bar staff to get off a vacant stool. Not very friendly. I didn't stay long and won't be back.

We stopped in here for a few cocktail and appetizers on a Friday night. Great service from our bartender, great drinks and food and great music. Gotta love a great local dive bar. I would recommend this for sure.

Rivals Sports Bar and UltraLounge was developed by owner Mike "ZO" Kawazoe as an alternative to the standard Waikiki bar. Mike's vision was to bring some class and sex appeal to Waikiki. By day, The Vegas inspired lounge provides Hawaii's most unique setting for watching any sporting event. When the sun goes down, Rivals transforms into Waikiki's premier UltraLounge, serving up handcrafted signature cocktails, domestic and craft beers as well as the state's most extensive whiskey collection. Always classy and never antiquated, Rivals offers up an atmosphere which lends itself to enjoying time with friends and socializing.
