Square Barrels

Bar/Pub/Tavern/Restaurant/Gastropub in Honolulu

Welcome to Square Barrels, a gourmet burger and craft beer restaurant concept in downtown Honolulu that specializes in serving a refined take on a beloved culinary classic.

With a kitchen recently opened by Chef Noah Blair, Square Barrels is more than a burger and beer "joint". It’s the ultimate food-pairing trip back in time.

Nostalgic house specialties made-to-order straight from the grill include the Square Barrels signature Drive-Thru Burger (made with fresh house-ground 80/20 local beef) and the delectable Venison Burger (made with fresh house-ground Molokai venison). Then, wash it down with one of our over 20 craft beers on tap including the latest brewery selections from Hawaii, California, Oregon and around the world.

“I wanted to create a culinary experience that’s an ode to that simple yet awesome meal combination,” says Hideo Simon, co-owner. “It's like my college days of getting a burger at the drive-thru and picking up a six-pack of craft beer at the convenience store and going home to have my ultimate dinner.”

“However, since I’m older now and I have a more refined palate, I wanted to be able to recreate that at a gourmet level for our guests.”

Stop by Square Barrels and savor the flavor of one of our delicious, artisanal burgers and craft beers for yourself.

Jack Daniel's   
Jack Daniel Distillery  ·  Lynchburg, TN
We do things a little differently around here – and that’s what gives Jack Daniel’s its distinctive character. We charcoal mellow our whiskey drop by drop, then let it age in our own handcrafted barrels. And we don’t follow a calendar. Our Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when our tasters say it is. We use our senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, our Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And, of course, by the way it tastes. 80 Proof
