Kauai's newest place to dance the night away is at the Kaua'i Island Brewing Co., a microbrewery and brewpub that incorporates nightlife with great food and beer. Featuring 10 house beers on tap, plus several rotating guest beers both on tap and in bottles, the brewery pours some of the best beers on the island.
Although you can find a decent nightlife of talking story at the bar any night of the week, week nights really get going with live music. Music is usually local bands playing rock or reggae music, but they also do special parties such as the 'glow in the dark' bash.

Before the night starts, you can sit down and enjoy a dinner of pub fare from a menu including pupus (appetizers), salads, burgers as well as a variety of fresh fish and mouth-watering entrees. The full bar serves wine, mixed drinks and cocktails. Five 55" flat screen HDTVs create a sports bar feel and show the usual popular sports games.
If you're having a party somewhere else, they now do keg rentals with their beer.

Bands and party themes change by the night, so call ahead for show information. Although they close at 9:30 pm on most nights, music nights usually go until midnight, which is pretty late for sleepy Kauai.
