Remember those boring class trips to the museum? Well this is nothing like them!
The only thing better than soaking up a bit of the arts and culture scene is doing it with a cocktail in one hand, and some great food in the other while a DJ spins in the background.
Not just for hipsters, the Honolulu Museum of Art’s monthly ARTafterDARK event draws a diverse crowd on the last Friday of each month.
For a $10 cover charge, attendees are treated to three hours of exposure to the incredible pieces that fill the galleries, live demonstrations / performances, spectacular food and signature cocktails. The food, drinks and interactive experiences go hand-in-hand with the theme of the month; all of which can be found on their website. http://honolulumuseum.org/events/art_after_dark
The genius of the event is that reminiscent of the “Big Apple”, it mixes art with nightlife, yet does so with a vibe that can only be found in Hawaii. There is something so sophisticated and sexy about exploring the exhibits after regular hours that it tends to draw an entirely different demographic. ARTafterDARK is one of Honolulu’s premier social events for those looking to escape the club scene while still enjoying the music and crowd, with the added bonus of exploring fine art. The event appeals to both the young and the old, and exposes people from all walks of life to the more than 40,000 pieces of art the museum has to offer.
For those a little less interested in the exhibits, ARTafterDARK still offers up the opportunity to socialize and mingle with an intelligent and well dressed crowd. Enjoy a drink, grab a bite, or get your groove on to the musical stylings of some of Oahu’s best DJ’s as you wind down your month and get your weekend started. ARTafterDARK runs from 6 – 9 PM on the last Friday of each month, January through October at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
