Nightlife in Hilo? Well, the town generally shuts down by 10pm and bars are few, but you can increase your options by heading to a restaurant with a bar vibe. For sports bars, consider Cronies Bar & Grill and Hilo Burger Joint. For a lively crowd, Pineapples is always jammed. The sleek bar at Hilo Bay Cafe has a standout view. And Kanpai has a trendy urban-hipster feel.
Daytime drinks range from fresh juice to kombucha to local coffee. You'll find the best variety of cafes offering such island drinks downtown.
