  • Quite a walk from the core of Waikiki but near the zoo and Kapiolani Park. Free parking most of the time. Don’t keep valuable belongings in the car! Parking lot is closed 12 am to 5 am. Well lit.
  • Very good place for evening and night time events. Day events can get pretty hot depending on the weather. Concerts are great here under the moon and stars and offers a nice change from the enclosed venues. Kapono and friends concert was awesome!
