City: Honolulu

O'tooles and Kelly O'Neals are two irish bars,also try Duke's Waikiki,Aloha Marketplace has multiple bars and grills but our personal favorites are The Shack Waikiki and Mai Tai's at Ala Moana.Cheers!
Just depends on what type of bar you're looking for.

If you're looking for Irish, Cory is right, with O'tools and Kelly O'Neils. There is also Murphy's in the downtown area.

I agree that Duke's is also a good bar in Waikiki. Go for dinner and sit out on the lanai. Be sure to order Hula Pie for desert.

If you want a truly unique place to check out, try La Mariana off Sand Island Access Road. It is kitchy, old style hawaiian (60's and 70's motif). Its not the easiest place, but it is unique.

Some other ideas....

Wine - Honolulu Design Center has a wine bar where you can try all kinds of wines by the ounce.

Lounge - Ichiriki Loft. Japanese owners have a great pupu menu and lots of sakes

Rum Theme - Rumfire in the Sheraton Waikiki is fairly new bar that features a menu of rum drinks. You can sit inside or oceanside.

Beer Selection - Both Yardhouse and The Varsity have a great selection of beers. The Varsity is an inexpensive college bar on University Avenue near UH. Yardhouse is the grown up version of The Varsity. It is located on Lewers in Waikiki.

Bar Food - Side Street Inn, near Ala Moan, and The Chart House, in waikiki, are known for the pupu (appetizer) menus. Local folks like to head to side street for happy hour pupu specials.

Honolulu Magazine just recently had their "Best Bars" issues. Try to do a search for that online for some other good ideas.

Good Luck!
For cocktails I recommend Manifest and 39Hotel, both on Hotel Street in Chinatown. Also in Chinatown, on Bethel Street, is Bambu where their martinis are $3.50 all day every day.
