Hawaii Wine and Dine is a social meetup. We are a diverse group of people from all over the world. Whether you are a visitor or a resident of Hawaii, we would love to have you join us. Creating new friendship in Hawaii is our goal, the wine and dine part is just an added bonus! The organizers are volunteers. Our group and events are not-for-profit. We will never ask for membership fees. We are dedicated to the social aspects of meetup. We believe making friends should be free!
Art After Dark at Honolulu Museum of Art.
Once a month the Honolulu Museum of Art transforms into a nightclub! DJ, live band, food, drinks, etc.
$25 for one year of museum membership, museum members enter free. Non members pay the exact same amount for one time entry (you might as well get the one year museum membership!)
Art After Dark is a good time to people watch, people get creative/artsy/dressy for this event and I would encourage you to do the same. You can find out the monthly theme on their website.
Don't come here for dinner, the food and drinks are extremely overpriced and small portions. 9 out of 10 times I've been disappointed with the food and drinks. Zero value.
Security turns into power tripping Nazis at 9PM, leave well before 9PM to not ruin your art after dark experience.
It's dead from 6PM to 7PM. 7PM-ish is a good time to go, but any later, you will be stuck waiting in line.
Head to Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown every first Friday of the month and dive deep into Oahu’s vibrant art scene. On each “First Friday” you can interact with local artists and artisans sharing their work during a festive night that draws a stylish crowd of visitors and locals. From expressive paintings to powerful cultural exhibits, you’ll get to see a diverse sampling of Hawaii’s burgeoning artistic talent.
Go on the Chinatown art walk and browse the galleries that open their doors with exhibits, free entertainment and light refreshments. You’ll see the crowds gather on the streets on and around Nuuanu Avenue and Bethel Street near the historic Hawaii Theatre.
You'll also find the downtown restaurants and bars fill up just as quickly as the galleries. In fact, hidden in the lofts and nooks of this urban neighborhood are many of Oahu’s best bars and nightlife spots.
