Duke's Waikiki

Bar in Waikiki

It’s a raucous scene, especially when weekend concerts spill onto the beach. Taking its name from Duke Kahanamoku, the surfing theme prevails throughout this carousing landmark where selfies and holiday camaraderie are encouraged. Upstairs, the tiki torchlit verandah at the Hula Grill has a more soothing live Hawaiian soundtrack from 7pm to 9pm almost nightly. Skip the food.
