Live Hawaiian Music with Kawika Kahiapo on slack key guitar poolside at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. Known as the “master of ki ho’olu (slack key guitar) and the minister of Aloha,” Kawika has been a staple at the Outrigger’s poolside Kani Ka Pila Grille since the beginning – in fact, the Grille logo is modeled after his guitar. Validated parking available ($8/4 hours). More info: Kani Ka Pila Grille | Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort
Kani Ka Pila Grille celebrates the local tradition of “kanikapila” (“let’s play music!” in Hawaiian). Named after the famous backyard jam sessions of the legendary Pahinui family, masters of Hawaiian slack-key guitar, the venue continues this tradition featuring award-winning contemporary musical performers with the comfort of ono (delicious) food and company.
