You could set the world afire with the more than 100 types of rum served at this oceanfront lounge. Listen up, rum aficionados: there are pre-embargo varieties from Cuba, and every table has an ocean view, with outdoor seating also available. Cocktails here are an art form—each libation’s recipe was well thought out and the bartenders skillfully muddle, mix and shake using only the freshest ingredients. Grab a seat and sip your way around the Caribbean while enjoying creative tapas and sweeping views of Waikiki Beach. At night, RumFire morphs into a club, complete with fire pits lining its perimeter with licks of flame. Open for lunch, dinner and daily happy hour. There is live music every night from 5 - 8 pm, and happy hour specials everyday at 4 - 5 pm.
