At night, Mai Tai is wall-to-wall people, a favorite local hangout. We recommend the more humane approach: Go at pau hana. You can actually get a seat at the bar and order $5 appetizers, including onion rings, Firecracker Shrimp and Chicken Chinois. Get a pitcher of beer for $9, sit back and relax with friends in the open-air bar and watch the game. Live music is another draw; there's always someone with a guitar playing classics like Brown-Eyed Girl. Open daily Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m.
