La Mariana Sailing Club is the last remaining bastion of true original Polynesian Pop in Hawaii. It opened in 1955, and over the years, it has become a sort of museum of Waikiki's tiki past: the tikis here came out of the Kon-Tiki

. Original owner Annette La Mariana Nahinu ran the operation until her death in 2008. La Mariana features a lively piano bar, and guests can join in on the singing.
La Mariana's original location was 50 yards from its current location; it moved in 1973. There is an 80-boat slip attached to the restaurant which sits on Ke'ehi Lagoon.

How to find it

La Mariana is a bit tricky to find—while on Sand Island Road, keep your eyes peeled for a sign for La Mariana, take the turn there, and follow the road to the restaurant.

Parking

La Mariana has a parking lot.

Last of the true tiki bars on Oahu. Great location, amazing decor, a funky well worn gem in the tiki bar. world. I always bring the malahini here when we have company. Go here before she is gone forever, you won't regret it.
