Tahiti Nui, in Hanalei, is named for the owner, Auntie Louise, originally from Tahiti. There are live local bands sometimes, a very local style Luau some nights of the week, impromptu singing, uke playing, and hula dancing by North Shore locals.
Unpredictable but always fun...
Dress Code: Totally casual - anything goes.

Not much to do for night life in Kauai as the sidewalks roll up around sunset. But at the resorts the tourists have other ideas! The Radisson Kauai Beach Resort in Lihue have happy hour from 5 -6 pm with free mai tais, beer or wine for the hotel guests at the pool bar. You can meet wonderful people from around the world and watch the sunset and torch lighting ceremony. One night we even saw whales breaching on the ocean.
Dress Code: Anything you want to wear

Kauai Luau's are a must do nightlife activity. Actually, the dinner itself will typically start before sunset, when the buried pig roast is unearthed and dedicated by traditional Hawaiian methods. The food is typically served buffet style, while waiters will bring bar drinks upon request. The food is oriented to the palate of the average tourist, so don't expect anything really exotic, but it's all good freshly cooked and prepared food. It's important to find a table or place on the long table near the stage for a good view of the nightly presentation. These productions are quite elaborate, and include bringing guests on stage. Fire ceremonies and other acrobatic drama are part of the nightlife Hawaiian Luau theater. For a list of Luau's available in Kauai, see the weblink below. Substantial discounts can be gained by your hotel or some kind of tour package coupon. Families are welcome to these events.
Dress Code: This is the time to come decked out in the traditional flowered Hawaiian shirt for men, and exotic tropical colored dress for ladies. Otherwise, dress informally.

The Grand Hyatt Luau is an event worthy of checking out. They have luaus on Thursdays and Sundays from 5:30p - 8:15p. I thoroughly checked out all luau options on Kaua'i and determined they are all about the same price. That being said, the one at the Grand Hyatt is superior. Plus, you don't have elbow-to-elbow problems like the one on the Coconut Coast.
Dress Code: Dress in your traditional Polynesian island wear!!

A great little bar, pub atmosphere with excellant nachos and wonderful drinks. During the several days I spent in Kapaa I met some wonderful people here, who I later went hiking on the beach with and to a wonderful, all day music festival. Ask the bartender for his secret "Punani" drink, so good you'll have too many!

Stevenson's Library is a dark wood paneled retreat. A nice place to have a drink, talk to other hotel guests and hear some good music.
This lounging spot was always lively at night during our stay, we would came by for an after dinner drink and cigar, see other tip in Nightlife.
Its a good bar with single-malt scotch, vintage ports and cognacs and fine cigars says the hotel guidebook. There are games and a pool table. Live jazz bands frequented every night.

Well, since we were there on our honeymoon this wasn't such a problem!
We still looked for some fun evening events?! Well, we always dine late, not rushing the afternoon and taking our time to get ready for dinner enjoy the room etc. After dinner we passed by Stevenson Library for live jazz music/tropical hawaiian band etc or whatever they had going on and enjoy a nice cigar (yes both of us).
A tip: check with concierge once you arrive and schedule your dinner reservations. We left the property various times to enjoy dinner and a live show at other local hotels/restaurants.
Dinner, live music and nightcaps. That's probably as lively as you get here in Kauai.
Dress Code: Chic and very Comfortable

The Radisson Hotel's Naupaka Lounge hosts a cozy living room atmosphere with easy listening music done by a solo musician each night. One of the favorite's is Tim and his ukulele on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday nights. A local boy, he is truly an entertainer with Hawaii in his heart. He keeps even the children and teenagers entertained. His style is easy listening contemporary Hawaiian, and he does throw in a surprise or two every night.
Dress Code: Casual dress.

Musical excerpts from 3 Broadway shows, Les Miserables, South Pacific and Phantom of the Opera and full buffet dinner.
After each course (salad, dinner, dessert), songs of one of the 3 shows were sung. The singing group did a good job. THe buffet was also good.
The whole event lasted about 2 1/2-3 hours and cost $59/person.
It's something different to do for Kauai.
Dress Code: I don't know if there is a dress coad, but we didn't see anybody really scrubby looking. On the other hand, no one was in a coat and tie, either. Most were in dress casual, although a few people did wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts.

I don't remember specifics but I thought I should clarify that I do remember seeing some comedy clubs and other places to hear live music advertised in Kauai travel guides.
These weren't located on our property. If you want to venture away from your hotel, check with local listings for more details. With all the sun and fun we had during the day, we were too tired to leave the Hyatt Regency Hotel Property except for dinner. On the days that we were too tired to leave the property we were thrilled to have such nice choices for dinner right here.
