Kauai Nightlife

  • See the Sunset

    There really isn't any "nightlife" on the island of Kauai. Nature is what it is all about here. The best nightlife? Walk along the beach, go see a Luau, or better yet watch the sunset with someone you love. On our last night in Kauai we drove to Salt Pond Beach to watch the sunset. BEAUTIFUL!Don't turn at the sign that says "Salt Pond Beach" rather...

  • Join a Luau

    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,...

  • Nightlife? What nightlife? Do a...

    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...

  • If you are a "NIGHT LIFER"-This place is...

    There is SOME nightlife on Kauai. But, if night-life is something you look for on vacation then I would suggest you visit the other islands instead.Most of us are in bed by 9:00pm. THAT is what I call "Night-life".... :-) Pajamas

  • Stargazing

    One evening I was strolling in the Coconut Marketplace shopping mall, when I came across a guy with a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope set up to show the night sky to the mall visitors. Being a stargazer myself, I naturally got into talking to him; he told me that there would be a stargazing gathering later that evening in a softball field outside the...

  • Happy Hour!

    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...

  • Friends, Food, and Spirits

    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! Casual

  • More Nightlife

    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...

  • A Place to stop for Nightlife

    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...

  • Make your own Nightlife

    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...

  • Live music nightly

    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...

  • Local fun

    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... Totally casual - anything goes.

  • A Taste of Broadway

    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...
