VIP tables with bottle service and nine different bars make The Villa a popular spot for nighttime prowling. There are lots of open spaces to groove to whatever the DJ is spinning that night, be it house or hip-hop or classic dance tracks. With lots of parking at Aloha Tower and in lots nearby, The Villa is popular with the local club kids and regular night-crawlers. Open only on Friday and Saturday nights, it has discounted drinks until midnight. Fashionable attire is required. www.thevillahonolulu.com.
The newest nightclub in Honolulu, The Standard is an ultramodern venue with an urban, artsy vibe. White walls are illuminated with shades of lavender, pink, and turquoise, and the space is decked with three bars, VIP seating areas, and an elevated DJ booth spinning house music over a spacious dance floor. The Standard is big enough to host networking mixers and fashion shows, and its location in downtown lures the after-work crowd. The suggested dress code—collared shirts and shoes—makes this a more grown-up hipster spot. www.thestandardhonolulu.com.
It's like watching a movie at the drive-in, minus the car and the speaker box. Bring a blanket and find a spot on the sand to enjoy live entertainment, food from top local restaurants, and a movie on a 40-foot screen. Held twice a month on Queen's Surf Beach across from the Honolulu Zoo, Sunset on the Beach is a favorite event for both locals and visitors. If the weather is blustery, beware of flying sand. www.waikikiimprovement.com.
This cabaret show has been entertaining Waikiki guests for more than three decades. Song, dance, and impersonations are all part of the act. www.outrigger.com.
It may not be the hippest club in town, but Rumours prides itself on its theme events and its retro vibe, spinning hits from the '70s and '80s. It's got free pupu to nibble on and cages to dance inside.
