We’re partnering up with Pow Wow Hawaii once again to throw another incredible BLOCK PARTY FINALE on the SECOND Saturday of the month, February 14th! The annual art event will be concluding here in Our Kaka’ako and we’ll be extending Honolulu Night Market all the way to Lana Lane and Auahi Street! The streets, the warehouses and the fashion alley will be filled with retail, a main stage, food and of course…tons of ART! Stay tuned for all the features and the main stage line-up…
*NOTE: there will be NO Honolulu Night Market on the third Saturday of February
This month’s pop-up dinner featured a traditional Filipino “grilled” feast and it did not fail to deliver. Ho’oku’i chef, Abraham Jazmin and his team served up 5 delicious courses with sides and a cocktail for night market diners. The seated dinner was set under the stars and guests were treated to the breathtaking ukulele performance by Honoka and Azita as well as the fashion show. Missed your chance at the pop-up this month? We’ll have a whole new chef and menu for next month, stay tuned!
Here are some photos from “INIHAW” by Ho’oku’i:

Curious what was going on in the alley during this month’s night market?
It was the first of our pop-up dinners; where we open the space to the public for a ticketed, seated dinner with a different chef or restaurant each month. The intimate setting is away from the crowds and the (sometimes) long lines to get food, so you can enjoy an exclusive dining and drinking experience during Honolulu Night Market.
The Pig and The Lady kicked it off with a bang! Guests were treated with a 7-course beef dinner and beer offering, while watching their food prepared onsite. Not to mention, they had great seats to the San Lorenzo Fashion Show! Check out the photos below:
If you’ve been to our event before, it’s definitely something new that you should try! We’ll be announcing our new pop-up in January…stay tuned!
