#32 of 46 in Nightlife in Honolulu
The Neal S. Blaisdell Center is a community center near downtown Honolulu, Hawaii. The complex has a multi-purpose arena, concert hall, exhibition hall, galleria, meeting rooms, Waikiki Shell and others.


Constructed in 1964 on the historic Ward Estate and originally called the Honolulu International Center, the center was renamed after Mayor of Honolulu Neal S. Blaisdell, who oversaw its construction. It was remodeled and expanded in 1994. The complex is overseen by the City's Department of Enterprise Services which also oversees the Waikiki Shell. The city is seeking to redevelop the site with extensive stakeholder and public involvement to assess the community's goals. Implementation of this plan will require significant investment by the City and its partners over the coming years, and the outcome will be an iconic symbol of the City and County of Honolulu.

  • Over 20+ years of having this festival and you would think the management here would have mastered the crowds and lines.... donʻt flatter yourself... they are still blind and clueless to manage crowd....  more »
  • This is a statue to Elvis for the First Satellite Television Concert back in 1973.. A must see for fans of "The King"  more »

  • Great venue for the symphony. No pit, so the orchestra is on stage. Usually the choir is placed behind them if used, so they are sometimes drowned out during certain scores. Not really a bad seat in the theater since it is so small. Overall, not a bad show for the money. All the seats are odd or even numbered rows, so don't worry if your tickets are 23,25,27, you're all sitting together.
  • Love this stadium. You have a great view from any seat in the place. We went for the state wrestling tournament, and even with six mats running, we didn't miss anything. They only had one food vendor running during this event, but they cranked out really good burgers, chicken strips, and french fries ALL day. The quality didn't go down as the day wore on. Bathrooms were always clean and stocked. It did get COLD though - the AC is strong!
