Where to buy beer and wine?

Hello. Can someone tell me the closest place to the Hilton Hawaiian Village to buy beer and wine for the hotel room? Thanks.

There is an ABC Store on-site ... but I imagine that the ABC at the HHV is more expensive than off-site. There are about 40 ABC Stores in Waikiki ... so venture out. There is an ABC Superette on the corner of Hobron and Ala Moana with a large selection, but you will probably pass two or three other ABC Stores along the way.

For a better selection I'd head over to Foodland at Ala Moana Mall.

The ABC at Lewers & Kalia has a really nice wine selection too.

Nice post! I need to stock up on some wine for the hotel room. I think it will be beneficial to have a pre-drink drink at the hotel :D

Great question. I was wondering same thing. We are staying at condo on seaside. Are there ABC stores near there? Better options?

"Are there ABC stores near there?" - There are ABC stores near everything!

In fact, there is an ABC store right next to the down elevater to Hades. - Heard they sell a LOT of shave ice!!

LOL, kidding. I like the ABC stores. They serve a wide variety of customers very well and their prices are fair.

BUT, as a wine buff, I find their selection a tad boring.

If you can find your way to a Foodland, especially one with an R. Field attached, you will have more options. The one on Beretania for sure. I think the one at Ala Moana too.

Tamura's is even better.

Happy sipping~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks! I do recall there was an ABC store on every block - or it seemed like it when we were there last.

Not all ABC Stores are created equal. As Scott mentioned, Lewers and Kalia (by Outrigger Reef, Halekulani and the Beachwalk strip) has a large selection. The Superette on Hobron and Ala Moana does as well. But not all ABC Stores are the same size.

The Walmart near Ala Moana had a much better selection.

The ABC stores had mostly the same stuff but there were a few that were closer to the HHV side of Waikiki that had a better selection.
