While filming South Pacific here, Ricki Nelson popped into the Tahiti Nui for a drink and got both of his eyes blackened for hitting on a local honey. Live music most nights and rowdy locals.

Yup, this is the classic, weather-beaten tiki bar you saw in the movie "The Descendants." Up on the North Shore in the tiny town of Hanalei, this place is where locals and tourists mix, with live music some nights and down-home luau buffets about once a week.Recommended for:Local Culture

Renown for our MAI TAI and PERSONALITY! We have been welcoming Kaua'i visitors and residents as hanai (adopted) family now for three generations. Featuring live Hawaiian music nightly from 6:30-9 and Hawaiian Slack Key guitar starting early on Fridays at 4:30pm.
Ask anyone where to go to have a good time, hear good music, feel completely at home, get a taste of the "local Hanalei" andand have a phenomenal dinner......your only response should be Tahiti Nui.
Chef Miguel is doing some amazing things in the kitchen specials change nightly so keep coming back and you're sure to always find something new to try.

Featured in the movie The Descendants, this is our favorite Hanalei hang out. Plenty of local color, Hawaiian music, legendary Mai Tais, hula dancing, great food with good sized portions. Service is not fast but you can do lots of people watching and drinking while you wait for your food. I play music there on Fridays from 4 to 6.

This place is really overpriced and the drinks are watered down, but they do have live entertainment some nights, which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of two. Not my first choice, though; Postcards Cafe across the street is way better.

This place was featured in the movie The Descendants. They serve food after 5pm and have a luau on Wednesday and Saturdays. Adults are $75 for the luau. Their Mai tai is good and we went during happy hour and it still cost $7.50 so I can't imagine the regular price. It's a great place to check out. The bar tender was in the movie as well.
