Cute & Cuddly

A "Friday at Bacchus" Primer: Arrive at 12PM. Purchase a $6 Absolut cocktail and a $4 Baker + Butcher Banh Mi or Butcher's Cut sandwich. Watch the latest videos, baseball or football match (ask the bartender to change the channel!). Take a break or stay and meet up with friends for happy hour and later enjoy DJ/VJ Matt at 10PM. There's never a cover charge and it's always a good time.

What's this picture of the hunk and the teddy bear all about?

A few things, actually.

First, the inspiration is today is National Care Bear Day. And while it sounds silly, at their core, Care Bears have heart and are all about love, caring and sharing with others. So, to pay homage, we extrapolated, and started to take a look at the love and caring at (and through) Bacchus Waikiki.

We are proud to support many local groups including The Hawaii Gay Flag Football League, The Aloha Bears, The Gay Men's Chorus of Honolulu and many others. Last night we had a great showing from these groups at our Trivia Night (the theme was "ampersands"...like, 'cute & cuddly…") and we had a blast. Congrats to the winners!

And, this weekend:
We're hosting a benefit for the Hawaii Coronation. Tuki's Annual Latin Fiesta is on slate for Saturday 9/10. The party will start at noon and the food and fun will continue until 4pm. 

And we welcome you to join us for NFL Sunday kick off on Sunday 9/11 at 7am. Later that morning, we're hosting The Aloha Bears pre- and post-catamaran open bar booze cruise starting at 11:30am.

Our staff wants to make sure your experience at Bacchus is outstanding.

Is there something you want to watch on television? Is there a special cocktail that you just have to try? Let the bartender know and he'll do the best to accommodate you. We just ask that you be mindful of busy times and busy bartenders.

Secondly, teddy bears can be about holding onto memories, so it seemed appropriate because:

We're celebrating our 5th year in business and are hosting our anniversary party this weekend: Sunday, 9/11 at 4pm.

The party is our way of giving back to our customers and neighbors and thanking them. There will be passed hors d'oeuvres and drink specials that you won't want to miss. And check out our BacchusHi5 gallery.

Finally, stuffed animals and cuddly toys are almost synonymous with a feeling of safety. At a young age, teddy bears and all manner of other such plush characters are thrust upon us and we create bonds with them that we feel shall last forever. And whilst the majority of adults eventually put Fluffy the bear and Mr Cuddles into storage it would appear that, for some of us, those childhood bonds are just too hard to break.

Come to Bacchus and feel safe—be comfortable being you. Enjoy our cool air conditioned bar room, our friendly staff, our delicious cocktails, our outstanding entertainment and our unforgettable events.

Never a cover. Always a good time.
