About Honolulu, HI Nightlife

Honolulu has the largest concentration of nightlife in all of the Hawaiian islands, so this is the place to get the partying out of your system. From hot bars and restaurants, block parties, clubs and shows, Honolulu has it all when it comes to after dark entertainment. Nearly all of the nightlife is in the heart of Waikiki, which is convenient because this is where the majority of hotels are too along with plenty of taxis to ensure safe transportation.

Like most destinations, Friday and Saturday nights in Honolulu are the most happening nights of the week. But that doesn't mean the rest of the week is lacking and in fact, there's still plenty to do throughout the week. Honolulu is a late night city, the streets keep busy, the lights stay lit, and locals and visitors alike keep going until the bars and clubs close at 2 a.m. Whether you're looking for an ocean side movie night on the big screen, or a raging night club to dance in, remember that 10 Best has you covered for the hottest nightlife in Honolulu.
