“fabulous open air club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Came here during the Friday 'night life' tour, we really wanted to go back as the atmosphere was great. A big plus during a hot evening is the lack of walls, making it a refreshing experience after a few too many ;)

“PARTY HEAVEN!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Friday night is Party Night on Rarotonga -- and Hidies is the spot to start your night. Great entertainment, a nice mix of locals and tourists, competitive prices on drinks. If you are over 40 -- take ear plugs!!! LOL

“Pretty scary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Had a laugh at this place. Questioned my safety upon walking in here with security checking my bag. Only to find a table of grandparents sitting down chilling to the islander music which was, well, very loud. Cheap drinks. Probably a hot spot if your keen on a big night session.

“Great place for a Friday night party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

Hidies Bar (as it is called by the locals) is fast becoming the place to be on a Friday night. We thought we would try one of the theme nights as we had heard that they are always well supported. We weren't disappointed. It was a 70's / 80's theme night - plenty of Don Johnsons and George Michaels look-a-likes. Lot's of transvestites - not sure if they were in theme or the real thing. Looked pretty convincing. I think if you are looking for a 'different' kind of night - then Hidies Bar could be the go.
