Tourists as well as locals flock to this perennially popular beachfront Waikiki bar & restaurant after sunset. Duke’s is a spot for friends to gather and listen to live Hawaiian music. Belly up to the bar and try a Mai Tai, Lava Flow, or the latest specialty drink concoction. Like all of Honolulu, the dress code is laid-back and casual.

Honolulu’s Chinatown, located downtown, boasts a revived, hip scene after dark. Be prepared to bar hop from one venue to the next, with a wide range of choices including wine bars, jazz clubs, and DJs spinning in the house. Bar 35, The Manifest, and Next Door are a few of the coolest spots to hang out.
