The menu features typical rum concoctions like Mai Tai, Halekulani, Pago Pago, Jet Pilot and the eponymous, Three Dots and a Dash. During its opening in 2013, this place received famous visitors like Aston Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson and Jenny McCarthy.

Buddy Guy's Legends

Buddy Guy, the guru of the electric guitar, is also the owner of this groovy club. Buddy Guy's Legends recreates the grungy feel of blues dives during the days when blues was just becoming popular.
