Waikīkī’s hangouts are where lights, DJs and libations reign. Grab your travel mates, dial a DD (cab) and brace yourself for voltaic island fun. Of course, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the partying may be socially distant and face coverings may be required, but these mainstays of fun still remain great places to unwind.
