Night Clubbing on Oahu

The power of live music to make folks feel good is on full display at a host of Oahu night clubs. From Makaha to Makapuu Point and from Barber's Point to Turtle Bay. Multiple options let you tap into the venues that the regulars go to, the tried and true nightlife spots for locals. Most of the fans like listening to the bands and vocalists showing off their skills.

"Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though
EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer.
And stubbornly refuse to fit in.

Social dancers love the pause that refreshes to separate the spectacular presentations, specially the oldies but goodies. These crowds are generally the more experienced dancers and do not need a frantic environment. They like to spend a pleasant evening with people they know, dancing, having fun and letting the rest of the world go by. The entire dance enchilada on Oahu is getting better everyday in spite of the Rail Catastrophe.

While many venues on the local music scene are clustered in the Waikiki area, there are many terrific places to hear live music to be found throughout Oahu. Kapolei has been stopped by the Present Rail Party but the Waianae Coast and the Central Valley have live music now and ready and willing for that new one coming in soon that will be well away from the Rail Disaster. The local scenes are places where everybody knows each other's name for good dancing, good drinks, great food and good times.

"Wine does not make you fat, it makes you lean ... against
walls, doors, floors, chairs and funny people."
