The Irish Rose Saloon

IRS-1We’re the best ‘little’ rock club in Waikiki.

The Irish Rose Saloon.  It’s been a Waikiki fixture since 1985 – previously located on Lewers, it’s relocated onto Ena Road.  It’s off the beaten path, tucked away on the second floor of a building next to a 7-11, not on Waikiki’s main drag. But it’s surprisingly spacious, and we’ve got live bands playing every night, on a stage with a great sound system. Awesome bands like Masters of OZ and Elephant tromp across the stage every weekend, and the room always remains friendly, whether there’s 10 or 100 people in the place.

The spot for local music & bands!

Anna O’Brien’s is right around the corner from UH on Beretania St and holds a couple shows a week, with music of all styles: reggae, blues, punk, ska, and more.  There’s even a regular comedy night on Wednesdays, and open mic on Thursdays.  The 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month currently feature an open Irish Session from 5-8pm.  Other places might have live music every night – but for a rotating stable of local artists, Anna’s is where it’s at.

KO-1The Irish heart of Waikiki

Live bands provide music every night from 9 pm to 3:30 am.  If you’re hungry, the kitchen is open from 11 am to 9 pm every day, serving up a variety of burgers and traditional pub fare such as fish and chips and Guinness pies. This lively pub is a great place to meet locals, military and of course tourists from around the world.

Kelley’s is one of the places people tend to congregate at after other bars close – open to 4 am, it’s open a full two hours longer than most other bars.

O’Toole’s Irish Pub

OT-5A historic part of downtown Honolulu!

Downtown’s got a quite a few Irish locales these days, but O’Toole’s has got the whole package – the ambiance of a little pub, a huge board of Boston Red Sox memorabilia, and live Irish music from the Doolin Rakes every weekend. The only thing it’s missing is corned-beef and cabbage. Of course, given it’s location, it’s easy enough to grab the bite to eat across the street and then return to O’Toole’s for the bar – never missing an Irish beat.
