Hawaii West is one of those places that gets so much wrong not because they were trying too hard but because they simply don’t give a shit. The decor is haphazard, the drinks aren't very good and, if Yelp is to be believed, the bartenders frequently overcharge. There's even a pool table, which, though out of place in a tiki bar, is at least free. Still, with its shabby, anything goes attitude, boisterous local clientele and beverages that are more liquor than sweet stuff, Hawaii West will warm you like the tropical sun. Tiki or not, it’s just what you need in a bar: a home away from home, a therapist's office and, most importantly, a dark little hole to get drunk in.
