Unparalleled Nightlife in Honolulu
Honolulu, Hawaii, has a diverse nightlife thanks to its many unique neighborhoods. Many tourists spend so much time planning a daily itinerary that they sometimes forget about our city’s lively nightlife. Honolulu nightlife is a mixed bag – there’s something for everyone. You’ll always be a short cab ride from the area’s best pedal pubs, jazz clubs, and late-night DJs when you stay at luxurious Prince Waikiki.
Blue Note Jazz Club
What started as a small jazz club in New York City’s Greenwich Village has blossomed into eight of the world’s best music venues. Waikiki was lucky enough to welcome Blue Note Jazz Club to the family in mid-January of 2016. Kenny G, arguably the best saxophonist in the world, was Blue Note Hawaii’s opening act. In less than three years, Blue Note has hosted some of Hawaii’s best live performances. Watch an up-and-coming local musician, a classic jazz ensemble, or a well-known act such as Don McLean. Sheila E., or George Clinton. Comedians occasionally find their way to stage at this posh, blue-lit bar. Patton Oswalt, Gary Owen, and Jay Mohr are scheduled to make appearances next year.
Bar 35 is easily one of the best nightclubs in Honolulu. This Downtown Honolulu hangout starts each evening as a dark, quiet place to grab a cold pint or refreshing cocktail. As the night moves along, youthful groups crowd into the outdoor patio and indoor lounge area in anticipation of a local DJ’s arrival. People usually stop by to witness the skills of Honolulu’s hottest DJs. It doesn’t hurt that Bar 35 has over 200 beers to choose from and a daily happy hour from 4-9 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Kaka’ako Bar Tour at Paradise Pedals
Pedal pubs have quickly become an American sensation in just a few short years. Known globally as a “party bike,” Paradise Pedals allows tourists to see the artistic neighborhood of Kaka’ako in-between stops at three brewpubs or bars. The tour runs from 4-7 p.m., so it’s only a Honolulu nightlife option during the shortened winter months. The trip should be paired with a visit to SALT At Our Kaka’ako and the Pow Wow! Street Art Murals, two of the best attractions near Prince Waikiki.
Honolulu Nightlife at Prince Waikiki
Prince Waikiki offers scenic, relaxing Honolulu nightlife inside 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar, Katsumidori Sushi Tokyo, and the Club Lounge. 100 Sails is a romantic, ocean-view restaurant with fresh island cuisine, contemporary architecture, and $1 million sunset views.
