I understand and appreciate Will's gripes. They are specifically not trying to compete with Smuggler's Cove. At least the cocktails are cheaper (my island style Mai Tai was only $8) and plenty boozy. I'm willing to give "divey" neighborhood style bars a little bit of slack with TVs especially if there is a space away from the bar to hang out and Kona Club definitely has that.

I don't love the music here, though. That's almost worse than the TVs for me.

Super chill and full of tiki atmosphere! Cheapest collectible mug in the world. Friendly bartenders and a pool table, too.
