This bar is starting to show its age. Decor is a little outdated, as is the music. It’s definitely catered to the older clientele of the hotel. Prices are very very high. So be prepared.

This was the best sushi I have ever eaten. The unagi, ahi and uni were absolutely melt-in-your-mouth divine! Come with a hungry tummy because you will want to try everything they have to offer.

Live music and great service in a classic bar location that doesn't look or feel like a sushi restaurant. Fun spot with good food, not the best "value" as typical hotel prices so that's why it gets 4 stars vs 5.

We visited Stevensons's Library on a cold, extremely windy night in Poipu. The Library is a beautiful library-like space at the Hyatt with dark wood paneling and a center koa wood bar. We were seated outside initially but as it got dark the wind and...More

They had live music but it wasn't jazz. More like cover band music.
