5 Top Gay Nightclubs and Gay Bars in Honolulu


408 Lewers Street

Bacchus is a wine bar that is known for being the best starter bar for the gay community in Hawaii.

It’s a great place to start your night in Honolulu thanks to its laid-back yet elegant vibe. Close to a number of other great gay bars and clubs, Bacchus is the place to be if you want to relax with a drink.

They serve up high-end cocktails, beer, and wine by the glass to patrons sat on its comfy couches. It’s a comfortable and sophisticated place to have a few glasses before the main event.

Fusion Waikiki

2260 Kuhio Ave, 2nd Floor

Fusion Waikiki is one of the most popular nightclubs in Hawaii because it is the only gay bar in Hawaii that serves alcohol until 4am.

Friday and Saturday nights are stripper nights, when handsome male strippers take to the stage and entertain customers. The club also has karaoke nights and drag nights on other nights of the week.

You can grab some bar food here until late and enjoy the club’s weekly drink specials. And since it’s open seven days a week, so there’s no excuse to miss out on a night at Fusion.

Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand

134 Kapahula Ave

Hula’s Bar, as it’s known to locals, is Hawaii’s and Honolulu’s definitive gay bar.

Just a short walk from Queen’s Surf gay beach, Hula’s Bar is a fun dance club that is located on the second floor of the Waikiki Grand Hotel. It’s spacious and open-air, so it’s the perfect place to have some fun.

The club is a great place for after-beach cocktails and bar food, serving up some delicious tapas dishes, including spiced lotus chips and five-spice duck quesadillas. It’s also a great place to end a night, with its huge dance floor and great DJs.

In Between Waikiki

2155 Lauula Street

If you want something a little more quirky, then head to In Between Waikiki.

This tucked-away gay bar is small but extremely popular. The tiny bar has just a few seats, but it doesn’t matter … the most important thing about a night in In Between Waikiki is the karaoke. The bar takes karaoke very seriously.

And while it may not be as glamorous as some of the nightclubs in the area, it’s a fun place to hang out with friends. The bar also offers some great drink specials most nights, although it’s not the easiest place to find.

Wang Chung’s

2424 Koa Ave

Another crazily fun gay bar in Honolulu is Wang Chung’s.

Serving up cool and quirky cocktails in a dark and small space, there is no way you will leave this karaoke bar without having had the night of your life. The bar has great themed karaoke nights, including a Disney-themed sing-a-long evening.

But if karaoke isn’t really your thing the bar offers some great bar snacks, including popcorn chicken and nachos, and is a cool and casual bar to relax in before a big night out.
