The Ritz-Carlton Residences Waikiki Beach hasn’t even broken ground yet and isn’t planned to open until 2016, but that didn’t stop developer Jason Grosfeld from throwing a grand launch party at the Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk.

The launch party celebrated what will be Ritz-Carlton’s second property in Hawaii, it’s first on Oahu (the other property being in Kapalua, Maui).

Aside from food by the chefs from BLT Steak, guests were treated to an amazing selection of wines, most of which were from Bordeaux, from Grosfeld’s private collection.
