Of course, the best thing to do on a Saturday afternoon or evening is to pay a visit to Bacchus Waikiki. Drinks are delicious, the bartenders are friendly and the music is sure to please. DJ Matt spins tonight at 10PM. Never a cover. Come up for a visit. :-)
We occasionally make recommendations on things to do in Oahu. We're rife with advice about adventures to enjoy outside of Waikiki, here's a couple to do nearby Bacchus before or after a day on the beach.
While an afternoon on any of Waikiki's Beaches is idyllic (we recommend Ft. DeRussy beach park), there are other sites to enjoy in the 'hood.
Have you been to the Waikiki Aquarium?
One of the oldest public aquariums in the United States, the Waikiki Aquarium has been open since 1904 is home to many unique exhibits, including Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles, giant clams and jellyfish. They also offer a variety of classes and activities like exploring the reef at night, which make interesting excursions.
Have you seen the free public dance show at the International Market Place?
After a day at the beach, you might explore Waikiki by foot, bike or even rented moped (not recommended). Wander on over to the new International Market Place in the early evening and witness a demonstration/show of polynesian dance. View from the ground level or up on the 2nd or 3rd. We recommend a closeup view of the sexy bare-chested male dancers.
Have you had dinner at Aloha Table?
Nestled away on the oft-overlooked side street in the heart of Waikiki, Aloha Table is a hidden gem for those looking for an outstanding, affordable meal. The menu skews local - with some unique mainland and Asian influences. We recommend the lomi lomi salmon, spinach salad, or mac and cheese to start. Dive into an order of Kobe beef loco moco, ribeye steak or breaded mahi mahi for your entree. Head there early (6ish) or you'll have to wait for a table, but consider a seat at the bar.
