Description: Rivals Sports Bar and UltraLounge was developed by owner Mike "ZO" Kawazoe as an alternative to the standard Waikiki bar. Mike's vision was to bring some class and sex appeal to Waikiki. By day, The Vegas inspired lounge provides Hawaii's most unique setting for watching any sporting event. When the sun goes down, Rivals transforms into Waikiki's premier UltraLounge, serving up handcrafted signature cocktails, domestic and craft beers as well as the state's most extensive whiskey collection. Always classy and never antiquated, Rivals offers up an atmosphere which lends itself to enjoying time with friends and socializing.

Went here because I found it on Happyhourpal.com. Upon entering there was a Seattle Sounders flag hanging in the entry, this put a huge smile on my face, whoever put it there knows good soccer!!!
There happy hour has amazing prices. Bloody Marys with wasabi for only $5 along with alot of other local favorites. There is also food specials on most everything on their menu. The bartender recommended the nachos, so we listened and I am glad we did. They are HUGE! You could feed at least 5 people on the one and for happy hour they only cost $7. We ate until we were both full and I dont even feel like we made a dent, we had leftovers for days. The salsa on the nachos is amazing and taste like it was made that day. YUM! I would def. go back. The prices are good for a bar being in Waikiki!

Can't tell if this place is cool or not. It wasn't busy. The bartender was nice and talkative though.

This bar was located below the hotel that I was staying at.....Ohana Malia, which was very handy.

Staff were friendly and helpful. a multitude of sports on the big screen tvs were avaiable for viewing. A fun way to relax and have a few drinks with friends. The food was good as well.

This by far is the worst place in all of Oahu to eat. We ordered Teri chicken and it was the worst I have ever had did not know. Teri chicken could be that bad but it was awful
