Head Bartender Christian Self of thirtyninehotel - Honolulu, HI

39 North Hotel Street
Honolulu, HI 96817
(808) 599-2552
Hours: Fri-Sat 5pm-2am

Located in Honolulu’s Chinatown district, Thirtyninehotel is a popular dance club, a crowded watering hole, and even a budding art space, as the bar is developing relationships with several local (and a few non-local) artists. But it’s the bar menu that draws the masses here. Storied (and storytelling) Bartender Christian Self mans the nighttime operation. Thoughtful drinks like The Italian Geisha and The Smoking Gun[link] offer a stark contrast to the typical tiki-laden menu. A small garden on the back porch serves as both visual oasis and a tiny herbal buffet for several of Self’s more exotic cocktails.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Italian Geisha: Hibiki Whiskey, Campari, Clement Liquor, and Sparkling
  • Jalisco Sling: Benedictine Liqueur, Heering Cherry Liquor, Cointreau Pineapple, and Corzo Mezcal
