Lewers Lounge in the famous Halekulani Hotel in the center of Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii


Take a look at the room where the Cocktail Piano Series was born. This is the Lewers Lounge in the famous Halekulani Hotel in the center of Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. I played in this room for several years and while doing so conceived the idea of recording the kind of piano music I played there. Isn’t it the perfect setting? A room dramatically lit and luxuriously decorated to celebrate the simple pleasure of meeting with friends for cocktails and good conversation. Making the occasion truly memorable calls for the sounds of a romantic piano played with quiet sophistication.

The Lewers Lounge is the logical successor to the elegance of the old Canlis Broiler when it reigned as the premier place in Honolulu to hear fine piano music in a dramatic setting in the 1970s. Today that setting is the Lewers Lounge and is not to be missed on your next trip to the islands. Nothing has been spared to make this lovely room a classic cocktail piano venue. We are proud to feature it here at Cocktail Piano. Were he still with us I think Cole Porter would have felt right at home here, and so would Noel Coward.
