Waikiki's hottest new Happy Hour

$5 Bruschetta at Il Lupino Happy Hour

Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar


Nestled beneath a canopy of The Royal Hawaiian Center, where the palm lined gardens of Helumoa wander outward from The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, you will find Waikiki’s newest edition to the Happy Hour phenomenon, which us locals depend on.

Meaning “the little wolf”, Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar is a high-end Italian restaurant with a bar just a foot from the exterior; beautifully merging the charm of the tropics with the trendy elegance of sophisticated dining.

Happy Hour is from 3:00pm to 6:30pm daily, and you just can’t beat it – very smooth house wines at $5 a glass, and freshly made sangria and Italian themed cocktails at $7. But that doesn’t even begin to describe the value, which ultimately lies in the fine quality and good portion sizes of the Happy Hour menu items, which are just $5 apiece.

The bruschetta is fantastic - intriguing and tasty, it consists of a three part wonder – beets and creamy blue cheese, freshly diced tomatoes, and roasted aubergines, finished with a refreshing palate cleanser of tossed spinach.

The pizza is large and extra cheesy, the calamari, grilled and flavorsome, and the cheese platter, absolutely, decadently delicious; with a 5 part choice of high-grade meats and superior cheeses, it is authentic and undeniably good value.

At this Happy Hour, you simply can’t go wrong.
