The Ville At Park Row
Seven dollar pitchers of any draft beer. You can’t really beat that, and if that’s all The Ville at Park Row’s happy hour offered, it would be worth the trip.
But wait—there’s more! A pleasant lanai with a view of the golf course, for one.
The pupus are key. They’re cheap and come out fast, so you can order more as needed depending on how many $7 pitchers your group tallies up.
We shared a pitcher with a companion, added in fried noodles and edamame, and our bill was barely 20 bucks.
The people watching ain’t bad. On a recent visit we enjoyed watching two guys in their 70s, fresh off a round of golf, bantering about old times. At another table, two women had their laptops out, doing a work meeting (or pretending too).
The Ville is the clubhouse of ʻEwa Villages Golf Course, a city course that’s open from 6am to 5:30pm every day. “Very challenging … Errant shots may end up within the surrounding residences, lakes, streams, or out-of-bounds in deep rough,” says the course website, so you’ll want to have your drinks after your round not before. From the sounds of it, you’ll need them.
Happily, the folks who run The Ville have higher ambitions than serving Heinekens to bummed-out golfers.
Most Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, the bar has some form of live, local music. The usual schedule goes:
- Western Wednesdays
- Hawaiian Time Thursdays
- Pau Hana Friday
We’ve been on Hawaiian Music Thursdays, and it was hoppin’. The type of busy, local crowd where our companions who grew up on the west side ran into old friends and classmates left and right.
