Cultural Activities


Every Monday and Tuesday night let us make your visit to Waikiki a combination of ancient custom mixed with contemporary Hawaiian tradition.


In one hour you will hear the call of the conch shell and witness the lighting of the tiki torches followed by music, hula, and the sharing of stories about the Hawaiian people and customs. We will also celebrate the days of Elvis and Tiki Bars as we introduce you to the modern day deconstructed Mai Tai cocktail.


Learn to make your own Mai Tai using the basic ingredients and adding in your own unique style.  The bar is ready and you simply select from an array of options like Lahaina Rum, coconuts, mangos, passion fruit and lilikoi to craft your own Mai Tai masterpiece.  No experience is necessary; one of our expert mixologists is there to provide guidance and advice.


Share a sunset with us and take home a memory of Waikiki that will last a lifetime.
