W: Nightlife In Honolulu
Went to this place twice. Complete tourist rip off. Cover is 15 bucks after 9pm- for nothing. Place is actually a restaurant which turns into a "nightclub" after 10pm on fridays and saturdays.
And that's what it is- a restaurant- not a cool club. The sound sucks in both areas, house and hip hop. The DJs play old, lame ass sound. The folks are rather chic- Honolulu's "high society".
Dress Code: No shorts, sandals, caps, and beanies. Most people are dressed up and show off!
Luao night: Exotic flowers are everywhere
At the beginning on the evening the host greets you and gives you a lei.
Then you sit down and eat. They serve a barbequed pork cooked onsite in a fire pit.
Free cocktails are the best. One of them is a whole pineapple with pina colada and a couple of straws.
The show starts when the sun goes down.
Exciting hula dancers shake their grass skirts. The men juggle fire.
Very good evening. Especially since we were on a Honeymoon vacation.

Clubs, Luaus, Comics, all forms of entertainment: Nightlife every night in Hawaii
Yes, Hawaii has it all! From luaus, to movies and street entertainment, to dinner cruises to night clubs and comic clubs ... it's all here and not only in Waikiki, though MOST of our night activity is found in Honolulu.
Dress Code: Usually casual does the trick, and you can get away with "aloha" clothes just about anywhere! It's always a good idea to wear decent shoes ~ you can always fling 'em off later if you want to have a moonlit walk along the beach!
Ocean Lawn Royal Hawaiian Hotel: Lovely ladies in lovely traditional outfits.
This picture features one of the many cultural

Moon Walk at Waimea Falls Park: Walking by Moonlight!
This is a nature walk offered each Friday night closest to the full moon. The park will have guides to take you around the "path" and describe different plants and origins etc (they will also classify different "smells" for you). Your ultimate goal is to get to the falls and see it in the moonlight. Wonderful for a family activity, or even a romantic way to spend time with your "special" someone.
Dress Code: Bring a flashlight, and bug repellent. Be sure to check the weather ahead of time and be prepared for rain. Mosquitoes usually are present too. My recommendation is comfortable jeans, good walking shoes, t-shirt with long sleeves that can be pushed up if it gets hot/humid or left alone to keep the bugs off. Prices are $7 for a family, $5 for a couple, and $3 single ticket.Related to:

There are some nice night clubs, good restaurant, but be honest I didnt have time to have fun there. I prefered to watch people on the street or spent nice time to watch sun sets on the beach ;-)
Dress Code: on the beach -shorts required ;-))
Sheraton Moana Surfrider: Sheraton Moana Surfrider
A gorgeous, historic hotel right on the beach in Waikiki. Walk through the stunning lobby to the open air bar behind the hotel and enjoy live entertainment, a beautiful dancer performing traditional hulas, good drinks, friendly service, and a dynamite view of the sunset. You can have lunch or dinner there, too, opting for good bar food or the buffet.
Dress Code: Casual but no swim suits
Best Mai-Tai's in Kona, comes in an extra large cup, blended with ice for a slush-type consistency, excellent flavor......a drink this good can be dangerous! In addition to enjoy such a treat, there is a gogeous view of the Kona coastline!
Nightlife? What's that? ...
Nightlife? What's that? After a full day of hiking, snorkeling, taking tours or just generally exploring the islands, we never had any energy left to do much but eat dinner and go to bed. I guess this could be something new for us on our next trip.
Go to a luau. As cheesy as it...
Go to a luau. As cheesy as it sounds, its very fun. While you're there, skip the cocktails and drink beer instead. They water down the free cocktails, so they're hardly worth it. Have some roast pig and enjoy the fire dancers.
The luau in Wailea is awesome and the scenery is spectacular. They'll also take your photo against the backdrop of the sunset. Nice!
Dress Code: Super casual. I wore a skirt and tank top with flip flops. It's outdoors, so dress according to the weather.
Duke's Canoe Club Waikiki: Duke's Canoe Club Waikiki

DUKE'S CANOE CLUB WAIKIKI is on the site of the original Outrigger Canoe Club, founded to preserve and perpetuate surfing on boards and in Hawaiian canoes. (photo from Duke's Website)
Dress Code: Shorts and aloha shirts with sandals. Typical Hawaiian wear.
The Red Lion in Waikiki: The Red Lion in Waikiki
This is a local hangout in downtown waikiki. Lots of tourist come here and the entire bar is plastered from ceiling to floor with dollar bills people have written on and stapled on the walls.
There is a window behind the bar and on the other side is the water at about the six feet deep level of a hotel swimming pool. So the view is definitely nice sometimes when the pool is full
Dress Code: casual
