Four Things to Know about Mauna Loa Club
At Mauna Loa Club’s half-circle bar, amicable bartenders pour craft and domestic brews from a line of taps while, further in, the sounds of clacking pool balls and arcade games reverberate off weathered wood-paneled walls. Here’s a few tips to keep in mind before your visit to this friendly and unpretentious neighborhood bar.
Credit cards are no good here. Fortunately, there’s an ATM available for patrons who forgot to bring cold, hard cash.
There’s plenty to do besides warm the stools. In addition to watching the big game on TVs above the bar, guests can settle scores at the pool table, or venture further into the cozy confines to play foosball, basketball, arcade games, or Metallica pinball.
There’s more to the building than the bar. Though the bar area dominates the club’s front entrance, guests who delve deeper into the Mauna Loa Club will find a wealth of places to cozy up with a beer or cocktail, from a secluded booth on the side to a small beer garden out back.
There’s no need to be a stranger. The space is long and narrow, which makes it easy to grab a stool next to a stranger and make a new friend or pool partner.
