The son of a Californian flamenco dancer, Greg ?The Salsaman? Henry was captivated by dancing early on. At the age of 3, he joined in on performances with his mother?s dance troupe. Years later he went on to found the Hot Salsa Dance Company, which puts on interactive latin-dance shows throughout Hawaii and California. Henry and other company members also lead the company?s instructional arm, Hot Salsa Hawaii, teaching group classes to beginning and intermediate dancers. In these classes, you can learn the basic steps of Dominican Republic?style merengue, a more energetic version than its Haitian counterpart. You can also work toward mastering the sideways footwork of the bachata. Classes are limited in size to ensure that each student gets plenty of attention from the instructor.

By day, Manifest Hawaii—situated on Chinatown’s historical main drag, Hotel Street—is a coffee shop, with baristas blending fragrant espresso shots and Torani syrups into custom drinks. By night, though, the baristas swap out suffixes to become bartenders as the venue morphs into a lively cocktail bar. Bartenders—including head bartender Justin Park, Honolulu qualifier for Bombay Sapphire and GQ's Most Inspired Bartender competition in Las Vegas—mix and muddle liquors such as Campari and bourbon with guava nectar, chocolate bitters, and other exotic mixers. An ornate black-and-white wall mural spells out the café-cum-bar’s name, decorating the space alongside eclectic pieces from local artists.
