Bar 35 has a nice following and a sizable bottle list. In fact, I think its bottle list rivals any or all of the best beer stores in Honolulu. You can be sure there will be all the Chimayís here, maybe a Traquair, possibly even Deschuteís special releases. The ambiance is also quite nice, spanning from a casual after work "pau hana" crowd to a more classy-chique evening crowd. Nothing to complain about here that isnít systemic to the poor beer distribution throughout the islands!

Huddled in the heart of Chinatown, Bar 35 is a great place to enjoy some nice craftbrews and non-domestic (non-US) beers. Good selection of bottles especially like the menu which sorts it by style of beer as well as country of origin. Food is limited to pizza and 2 other unexciting pupus. Pizza is good, but a bit pricey for what you get. Service was okay, although the bartenders obviously favored female company. Canít blame íem, I guess. Great pau hana, great beer - especially during happy hour.
