Honolulu is Hawaii's version of the city that never sleeps, and that's why late night and 24 hour eateries are a staple on the island. On any given night of the week, many Honolulu restaurants keep their doors open till the wee hours of the night, and some around the clock. Whether you need a bite to eat after a night in a club, or just looking for a late night snack, you'll be able to find what your craving in Honolulu.
Craving coffee and pancakes at 3 a.m.? What about a burger or bowl of saimin? Whichever it may be, you're in luck because the Wailana Coffee House is centrally located in Waikiki and open 24 hours a day. This Honolulu staple is a classic round the clock coffee house. Diner style booths, brown coffee cups, and simple traditional fare. Whether you've emerged from a nearby nightclub or just an early riser, this place is there for you.
If you're in search of a late night meal highlighted by live music and a party vibe, Bar 35 in Chinatown provides a full bar along with a delicious menu of gourmet bar food (yes, it can be done and they do it well). Nearby is RumFire, an ocean side bar-slash-restaurant that offers a great menu late into the night.
Please note that most of the late night places to eat are in the heart of Honolulu, but a few lie on the North Shore. Enjoy your late night - or early morning - dining.
