    by jaycee1401 Written Aug 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is my favourite club on the island. It has a good mix of locals and holiday makers, with 2 floors packed with well dressed party people! The music is mainly R&B and drinks are average prices.

    You have to be 21 or over except Thursday and Fridays in which case its 18+.

    Drinks are $1 happy hour $3 normal. Entry fee's vary around $5-$12

    The picture is of me (on the left) and Steve (on the right)...Im looking pretty drunk.

    Dress Code: Guys: No Sandalls, NO collarless shirts, no sneakers (trainers if ya english).

    Girls: No shabby shoes.

  • Beaches / Coastlines: Fun, Fun, Fun

    by funnynsweet67 Written Aug 2, 2004

    There are so many different clubs on this island and each of them have their own spice of life. All along the beach at each one of the hotels their are nighclubs, live music, eateries, etc. It's a fun night to walk along and make a stop at each to experience each ones topic for the evening. The best part is you can usually walk back to your resort. Make sure to order yourself a Mai Tai they make them the best on this island.

    Dress Code: Most of the spots you can come as you are. These spots are my favorite.

    Germaine's Luau: Eating in the Rain

    by bPIT Written Mar 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My wife and I recently visited Honolulu for the first time and the one major disappointment was Germaine's luau. Even though it was raining, we were not given the option on rescheduling or a refund. Instead, we were all handed a thin plastic poncho and shuffled into the seating area like cattle. We basically had to find our on seats on uncovered wooden picnic tables while it was pouring rain. We were then instructed table by table to line up for the buffet food which included roasted pork. We had to use plastic forks, knives, and plates and we had almost no room to eat on the park benches. All this time, the staff were taking shelter under the covered bar and drink areas and the show began. The actors and dancers tried to put on the best show they could and obviously were trying to ignore the rain. If that wasn't bad enough, they turned out the lights about 5 mins after we started eating and basically we were left to eat in the dark. My wife and I decided to move to one of the covered drink/concession areas and finished watching the show. ( We enjoyed much, much more the Polynesian Cultural Show that we had seen the previous night ). We then were transported back by bus to our hotel in Waikiki. The best part of this whole evening was being the first guests to get off the bus at the end of the night. I could think of many better ways to enjoy an evening in Hawaii and to spend $110 USD.

    Paradise Cove Luau: Ko Olina Night Life

    by Kaleisu Updated Jan 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a luau - so it's commercial and touristy, but worth it. Bring $1 bills to tip crafts people as they help you make lei's and palm leaf crowns. Bring your camera (of course). Great food. I'm veg, but the beau enjoyed the pork. Try the poi - seriously. It's the purple looking soupy stuff. Secretly add a squeeze of pineapple juice and a packet of sugar or two and amaze your friends by eating it. It tastes like apricot baby food. It tastes like the scum on top of sour cream if eaten plain. It was traditionally meant to compliment salty meat. The coconut pudding is also delightful (the white jello squares). This luau runs $60 and $80 packages (all you can drink mai tai's are not very good). If you have a friend stationed in Oahu with the military - check into military discounts. If a luau is too pricey for your trip - see the Shorebird restaurant review I have posted.

    Dress Code: A little chilly at night during winter months - bring a long sleeve shirt to throw on after sunset. I saw everything from evening wear to girls in sweat suits. Sarongs abound.

    As Much or as Little as You Want.

    by keeweechic Updated Sep 9, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a never-ending supply of nightlife in Waikiki and Honolulu - more than enough to choose from.

    Hard Rock Cafe has Live music. Either rock or reggae is featured on Friday and Saturday from 10pm to 12:45am and there is no cover charge. The food was 'the usual' and the band playing the night we were there were really great.

    Elvis Presley's car is strung up from the roof.

    Waikiki: There's only a nightlife in honolulu

    by belgianwaffle Written Aug 2, 2003

    If you go anywhere other than honolulu you will be lucky to find stuff going on at night other than bonfires. Which are fun... for sure! But if you're a tourist then I would stick to doing stuff in town for sure. Go walk down the strip (surprisingly fun). Go to clubs. Go out to eat. or just hang out on the beach at night.

    Germaine's Luau: Rich cultural heritage of the Pacific Islands

    by spartan Updated May 23, 2003

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Germaine's Luau you will experience the tradition and rare authenticity of a "backyard-style" luau under the stars and near the water. Guests dine under the stars and relish the scenic beauty of the surroundings while being entertained with exotic dance and island music.

    Dress Code: Shorts and T-Shirt will do just fine

    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
