The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort Introduces The Bar at Azure

Last month I attended a launch party for The Bar at Azure at The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Resort.  

Guests were treated to a variety of sips and bites at the renovated bar, which has an expanded seating area and an all-new cocktail menu.

The Royal Hawaiian is already one of my favorite places on the island, and I'm excited that the resort is offering a classy new venue for guests to enjoy craft cocktails and exceptional food.

More about The Bar at Azure:
According to Royal Hawaiian’s Director of Restaurants and Bar Micah Suderman, the visionary behind the new bar and its menu, the Bar at Azure will offer craft cocktails and private-label spirits. After establishing Azure Restaurant’s first cruvinet wine storage system, Suderman has been working with companies such as Kō Hana Rum and Jim Beam to help revamp the bar menu. Craft cocktails and private-label spirits, which had been hot trends in the food and beverage industry, are now a large part of destination marketing as travel and food are universal experiences.

The Bar at Azure features three veteran mixologists, including Robert “Sully” Sullivan, Ryan Tanji and Alicia Yamachika. Among the signature drinks available at the Bar at Azure are the Daiquiri made from Azure’s own rum from Kō Hana Rum near the north shore of O‘ahu, as well as the new Royal Sunset made with a variety of ingredients such as Maker’s Mark, lilikoi, citrus and bitters.

In addition to The Bar at Azure’s opening, Shingo Katsura has returned home to the islands as chef de cuisine at Azure Restaurant. Katsura was most recently at Roots & Rye in San Jose, Calif. as executive chef and later helped that group open a second restaurant, The Province. He began his culinary career at Madera Restaurant, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Menlo Park, Calif.

The Bar at Azure is a complement to its older sibling, the Mai Tai Bar, which opened at the Pink Palace of the Pacific in 1953. Victor Bergeron who is credited with inventing the Mai Tai in 1944, created a recipe for The Royal Hawaiian’s Mai Tai Bar using pineapple juice instead of the original lime juice. Azure diners can have their meals at the Bar, or enjoy a nightcap in the bar area nightly through 10:30 p.m.
