Kauai Resorts and Lounges Offer Island-Style Groove
The Garden Island offers a vibrant night life from the resorts of Poipu on the south shore to the local favorite spot at the Tahiti Nui in Hanalei. You can enjoy everything from Hawaiian music with hula, dancing to rock and roll, or relaxing to jazz.
In addition to the places listed below you can also find live music on Kauai in a variety of other locations from marketplaces and restaurants to lounges, hotels, and resorts. Hawaii also has a great tradition of backyard music, with many gatherings occurring just to share songs and music with all of the ‘ohana (extended family).
