Skull & Crown Trading Company

Honolulu, Hawaii, United States

Skull & Crown Trading Company opened in downtown Honolulu's Chinatown in June of 2019. They occupy the spot formerly occupied by Grondin French-Latin Kitchen. Noa Laporga and Angelina Khan run Skull & Crown Trading Co., which is the latest in the duo’s history of mysterious, haunting and enchanting ventures. You might know them from Haunted Plantation, which takes over Hawai‘i Plantation Village every Halloween; they also ran the Unlocked escape room at Ward Warehouse in 2016 and Ala Moana’s Ghost Bar in October 2018, as well as a special effects company, Black Box FX. In keeping with this background, the bar has a bit of a "dark tiki" theme with a creepy mermaid over the bar and lots of skulls.

Their craft cocktail menu is chosen with care, regularly switched up with new items, and has received rave reviews.

There is also a back patio area.

    Cool place. Drinks were good, but there's no food... which I always find odd in a bar, 'cuz I gotta have food with liquor. Further complicating this is the fact that the bar is out of the way - so eat before you arrive. The decor was excellent; "dark tiki" is about right. Some mysterious touches, almost horror here and there, but it's not too much so don't worry about that. It's a small space; seating maybe 40? There's a much larger back patio, but it has been sparsely decorated. It feels like perhaps several establishments share it? We picked up a pair of what are now some of my favorite Mai Tai glasses. I'll try to post them soon. We'll probably visit again...
