Best Live Music Restaurants in Waikiki
Music evokes memories. Sometimes a song will take you back to a special moment, like watching the sun go down over Waikiki Beach. Luckily, live music is a mainstay at restaurants across Waikiki, offering a local soundtrack to your vacation.
Take Tiki’s Grill & Bar, for instance, located on the third floor of Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel. First there’s the unbeatable view of Kuhio Beach, complemented by Pacific Rim-inspired appetizers and colorful cocktails. Add a dose live music, and it’s an evening that can’t be beat. You can unwind just steps from your hotel room with a front-row seat to a breathtaking sunset, all to the tune of great local talent.
Visitors can enjoy live music at Tiki’s Grill & Bar daily, with music sometimes starting as early as 2pm and playing as late as 11:30pm. For detailed descriptions of the nightly lineup at Tiki’s Grill & Bar, refer to the online event calendar. Swing by for happy hour, held 2-5pm daily, with a new drink special daily.
If you’re out on the busy Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki, slide into the spacious Maui Brewing Company, located right next to the International Market Place at 2300 Kalakaua Ave. Live music is played at the indoor stage 3:30-5:30pm daily, with additional music played Fridays and Sundays from 9-11pm. The open-air restaurant has abundant patio seating where you can hear the music while taking in the action of Kalakaua Avenue below. Order a beer flight to sample just a few of their 36 beers on tap.

A fire pit and lounge seating go well with casual cocktails and small bites.
