BACKBAR - SKY Waikiki's New Speakeasy

SKY Waikiki has just released a brand new speakeasy - the BACKBAR!  I was fortunate to have attended a media preview of this ultra chill and chic spot tucked away from the crowds, where Director of Mixology, Jen Ackrill crafted exclusive cocktails for guests.

Old Fashioned AF

That Pink Drink


Devil's Swing

Jealous Lumberjack

Hey Yo! Chareau

In the Shadow of Palm Trees
My personal favorite cocktail was the Jealous Lumberjack - Kikori Japanese Whiskey, Saler's Gentian, Midori, Lime, Citrus Syrup, Orange Bitters.  It was refreshing, and I really loved all the citrus flavors.

I also enjoyed That Pink Drink.  Don't let the color fool you - the cocktail, made with Laird's Applejack Brandy, Belle de Brillet Pear Liqueur, and Pastis, is quite strong! 

Speaking of strong, if you love a good, stiff cocktail, Old Fashioned AF is for you - Russel's 10yr and Stagg Jr. Bourbons, Michter's Straight Rye, Sugar, Angostura Bitters.

Select Social Bites from SKY Waikiki's menu will be available.

I look forward to going back for a GNO!
