The Tchin Tchin Bar

39 N Hotel St, Honolulu, HI 96817, USA

An unmarked door in Honolulu’s Chinatown—between Bar 35 and Nextdoor—leads to this second-story watering hole. The name derives from the Chinese toast qing-qing (please-please), inviting guests to pull up a chair and stay a while. The booths, long bar, and rooftop patio make it easy, as do the excellent wine list and artisanal cocktails. Fancy a nibble while you sip? Snuggle into a white sofa underneath strings of Edison bulbs and dig into a Stinky Grilled Cheese (redolent with Taleggio and onion marmalade). Or choose among small plates drawing on French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, and Moroccan influences.
