Yes, Waikiki is best known for its sun, sand and surf from sunrise to sunset. But, when the warm Hawai‘i sun sinks below the horizon, the fun doesn't stop. Located in the heart of this vibrant town, Embassy Suites Waikiki has access to a multitude of exciting nightlife options from live music to moonlight sails. Read on to find out our recommendations for must-do activities under the stars in Waikiki.
Toast to the Sunset
You'll give two cheers for the evening reception at Embassy Suites Waikiki where you'll sip and savor two complimentary drinks alongside light snacks. Set on the Grand Lanai pool deck, it's the perfect locale to unwind from the day's adventures and take in the sunset. So, will it be a Blue Hawai‘i or a Mai Tai?
Jive to the Music
Make your way over to the Pakini Bar & Lounge, also located on the Grand Lanai, for live music and more cocktails. Here you'll relax on comfortable lounge furniture and enjoy one of our Embassy Exclusives, a special menu of cocktails perfectly paired for the poolside experience. Check out the line-up of local musicians:
Thursday: Shawn Garnett
Friday: Kanilau ‘Ohana
Saturday: Kapu ‘Ohana
Sunday: Kanilau ‘Ohana
Sail into the Moonlight
Board the Holokai Catamaran for a unique view of Diamond Head and the Waikiki skyline from the water paired with all-inclusive drinks, including the famous "Holokai Hooch" cocktail. Select the Sunset Cruise or Friday Night Fireworks Cruise depending on which show you're in the mood to see.
Dine on Delicacies
Enjoy a romantic dinner at Taormina alfresco on the patio or along the front window for the best people watching. Hot tip: order the Ricci di Mare, spaghetti sautéed with fresh sea urchin. End the night with the delicate, yet decadent Chocolate Souffle at Roy's Waikiki (if you know, you know).
Play an Escape Game
Open late, Breakout Hawai‘i is a perfect post-dinner activity for families and couples alike, plus it's located just across the street! Choose from five escape room challenges such as a runaway train, psychological thriller, or enemy bunker ambush, and work together as a team to break free.
