Nightlife is slow, natural, and relaxed—resort-like—in Princeville, a popular destination for honeymooners and a place where the visitors outnumber locals.  At the Princeville resort, nighttime “events” are made of sunsets and alcohol.  Set on one of the world’s best beaches, the rise and fall of the day is as blue and beautiful a view one can get in life.  

Mai Tai’s concocted with local vanilla make an excellent complement to any event of the evening or later.

Princeville resorts also make for impossibly romantic nighttime beach dinners and walks.

The Happy Talk Lounge at the Hanalei Bay Resort complex, a long-time favorite of visitors,  has been closed for several years.  It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015. 

The lobby bar at the St. Regis allows for further entertainment, gluttonous drinks and desserts, and, as with just about everything Princeville, a stunning view is provided free of charge.

At the Princeville Shopping Center Tiki Iniki offers cocktails plus lunch and dinner. 

 The closest place for real nightlife is in Hanalei, at Tahiti Nui.  Since being featured in The Descendants the place has become quite popular and you may have trouble getting in to listen to the live music, which is well worth the cost of a drink or two.
