Oahu Eats & Drinks > Best Happy Hours in Waikiki

Happy Hour in Waikiki is a weekly must-do! This popular period of time, usually a couple of hours in the afternoon or early evening, is highlighted by restaurants and bars offering up cheap beverages and pupus (appetizers). It’s also called pau hana in Hawaii, a Hawaiian saying translating to “work is done”. We like to unwind at these Happy Hour spots, based on great value for money.
