Photos of Skull & Crown Trading Co.

It is a contemporary take on the tiki bar. Skull & Crown Trading Co.’s eccentric décor brings you back to the heyday of the tiki bar. Aside from the evocative environment, this establishment offers an extended variety of specialty drinks ideally suited to the theme. Make sure to try the Dole Float Rum Float, an adult version of the famous Disneyland drink. The Trader Noa, an Old Fashioned combined with smoking Kiawe wood — smooth and smokey — is our favorite. This Honolulu tiki bar features a lovely antique design and an outside sitting terrace with Hawaiian flora and a Koi pond. 

Try the Zombie drink or the Black Pearl and sing along to some karaoke at Chinatown’s best! Noa Laporga and Angelina Khan are known for throwing a fun and creepy parties. The other projects include an annual Haunted Plantation and a pop-up Ghost Bar. But there is good news! So, Skull & Crown was reopened on March 13, 2021. I was lucky to be there on the reopening night, with a buzz in the air. Guests waited safely outside the entrance, and a happy Noa greeted everyone as they entered. For the time being, reservations are necessary. I had a couple of drinks and some veggie spring rolls from the restaurant next door and enjoyed the decor. While there are typical tiki cocktails on the menu, the specials of the night from guest bartenders Jacob and Art were too excellent to pass up. 

I appreciated the wonderfully balanced ‘Olu ‘Olu drink (top center). Kuleana Hui Hui and Nanea rums, coconut water, white grape, lilikoi, lemon, and absinthe are used to make it. My second drink was the “Smol Kine Trouble in Lil China,” which was the beauty at the bottom. Smith & Cross, Plantation Pineapple rum, lime, grapefruit, guava cinnamon syrup, absinthe, and Angostura bitters are combined in this cocktail. Let’s hope one or both of them transition from specials to regular menu items. So, this is one of the best bars Honolulu has to offer! If you are in town, we recommend visiting this bar at least once!
