Humuhumu’s description

This Capitol Hill Luau Hut was the sister location to the original Luau Hut in Silver Spring
history
Luau Hut
Silver Spring, MD
Bar & Restaurant
, it opened in 1967. It was owned by Moon Kim and Paul Malonson. Like the original, it was richly and elaborately decorated in the Polynesian style, and very popular. The lower level held the Outrigger Lounge, where live music acts performed, including Kim Tsoy and the Sauce, the band of Moon Kim's son.
The building that housed Luau Hut had previously been a Chinese restaurant called The Chinese Lantern, then just before it was Luau Hut, it was another Polynesian restaurant, The Waikiki
