The District might be the easiest way to find hookups in Honolulu
We hope we never get too old to enjoy the dance clubs. There are no finer places in the city to watch and mingle with some of the most ridiculously sexy girls around. It helps that they seem to all be in a competition to see who can wear the skimpiest dress. If you’re single and looking to meet girls in this city, go where you’ll know they’ll be. These days, it’s usually The District.
Not far from the Ala Moana Shopping Center is this 3,400-square-foot dance haven. This spot has everything we look for in a great dance club. There are multiple bars so you don’t spend all night waiting to get one drink. There is also the giant dance floor that makes it easy to get into the groove. And speaking of groove, The District’s rotating lineup of live DJs blast some absolute bangers. No question, this is one of Honolulu’s best clubs.
That would mean nothing if it didn’t also draw the ladies. But, of course, every Friday and Saturday, like clockwork, there they are. Bodacious babes in their finest clubwear, shaking their asses well into the wee hours. Dust off your dance shoes and join the fun.
AFF is Honolulu's best hookup app for locals AND visitors (try it free)
With more than half of all hookups starting online these days you really can't avoid being on at least one app. It doesn't matter if you're local or visiting the best hookup app in Honolulu has been AFF. Tinder is OK but now it's become more about relationships than hookups. When you want something more casual AFF is king, especially for single guys.
What makes AFF so good is just how popular it is. It has over 60 million active members and that means a lot of options. With so many locals and visitors using it you never really run dry. Unlike Tinder, the women actually want to meet up instead of just collecting compliments from desperate guys.
You just can't avoid apps anymore. Check out AFF's free trial below and see why it's become so popular lately.
The best Honolulu pickup bars we've tried
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Even with online options, bars remain among the best places to find hook ups in Honolulu.
Nocturna Lounge is easily one of the best places to pick up girls
The bar scene will always be where guys and girls meet up for one-night stands and possible relationships. While going online is transforming the way people connect, nothing can replace the in-person experience. You spot a cute girl across the room, make eye contact and start up a conversation. It’s a classic for a reason. But even classics can get a facelift.
Nocturna Lounge is a modern twist on the cocktail lounge. Instead of stuffy art on the walls and overly serious “mixologists”, this late-night hangout near Pier 2 displays digital cool. With cove after cove of video game consoles and flatscreen TVs, this lounge is designed for the online generation. It’s a young and flirty crowd that arrives at Nocturna for one-on-one gaming competitions and singalongs.
While the karaoke rooms are what draw in the crowds of ladies, don’t sleep on the gamer girls. Nocturna Lounge has a nerdy vibe, but nerdy is cool these days – and pretty freaking hot. It’s simple: if you want to meet hot girls, you need to go where they’re hanging out. And on most nights of the week, that’s this hip cathedral to the modern age.
Honolulu BeerWorks is the best bar to get laid
We love a good craft beer, especially when served on a relaxed patio with communal seating (the best excuse to sit next to someone and strike up a conversation!). Honolulu BeerWorks is exactly that. And it is one of the city's best places to find a little local casual sex without the attachments.
Honolulu Beerworks has a great selection of local beers. Try their cocoweizen for an interesting local take on an old classic. This bar constantly adds new and interesting brews to keep their menu interesting. So, if you don’t see something you like today, head on back next week. You never know what (or who) you might find at one of the best bars to get laid in Honolulu.
Jazz Minds is the hottest jazz club to get laid in Honolulu
Jazz Minds is one of Hawaii’s only jazz spots, so if you love jazz or just want to hook up with a jazz lover, this is the place to be. With talented musicians on stage six nights a week and a crowded dance floor, this spot is perfect for finding your next hookup. If you aren’t into live jazz, check their schedule. They also offer karaoke a few nights a week.
This place usually gets busy later, so head to one of our other Honolulu hookup spots early in the evening to get warmed up for a hot night of dancing and jazz.
Yard House is a great place to start the night
If you’re looking for traditional American bar food and literally yards of beer, Yard House is for you. They are known for their happy hours (twice a day!) and great service. It is always crowded, so your odds of meeting someone are pretty high. Yard House is undoubtedly where you can get laid if you play your cards right.
Yard House is a great place to start for a night out. People often drop by straight from the beach, so get there a little early to enjoy happy hour and meet some beach babes.

The best clubs for finding hookups in Honolulu
As all sexy ladies know, if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And that’s exactly what girls are doing at some of the city’s best clubs.
Addiction is where Honolulu goes to show off
We don’t want to pit dance clubs against each other because there’s something to enjoy about all of our favorites. We’ll just say, while The District is hip and hot, Addiction is suave and sensual. Located at the Modern Honolulu hotel, this night club will set you back a few dollars, no doubt. But, like they say, you get what you pay for.
Lined with velvet ropes and featuring private seating with bottle service, Addiction is the city's most upscale night club. If its setting in one of the fanciest hotels in town didn’t tip you off, this place is très chic. It’s the kind of place that enforces a dress code. So that's button-up shirts and long pants for the guys; looking mad sexy for the gals.
If you’ve got the scratch to spend, you won’t find a better place in our city to meet sexy babes. Not to be reductive, but, if you throw down a few hundos at Addiction, you’re not going home alone. That’s just the kind of club it is. Four nights a week, the seemingly most out-of-your-league babes in the country are looking to be picked up by you. Consider it an investment in yourself.
Head over to Bar 35 for sunsets and singles looking for hookups in Honolulu
Bar 35 is known throughout Honolulu as a great place to meet single people. It is also one of the best places to watch the sunset and drink a few beers -- there are over 200 to choose from! There is probably no better combination than singles and sunsets, with a few cocktails mixed in, for a hookup!
They have a great happy hour promo with the best flatbread pizza on the island. The service is great, and the bartenders are pretty generous with their pours. All in all, a great Honolulu hookup bar. So if you find yourself looking for some drinks in Chinatown, make sure to stop by.
Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand is the most entertaining place on the island
One of the city's most popular bars (and one of the country’s most popular gay bars) is Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand once you go, you’ll understand why. With their strong cocktails and ever-rotating schedule of talent, you will absolutely love it here. With its location at the Waikiki Grand Hotel, you have a great place to head to after if you find yourself successful!
Join them on a Saturday for their Catamaran sail. With a mai tai in hand, you are destined to enjoy their “wettest, wildest, half-naked” ride.
Try Rumfire Waikiki for late-night dancing and tropical drinks
Tropical drinks and a beautiful sunset set the tone at Rumfire. All you need are a few conversation starters, and you’ll find some success here. Inside, you can lounge on the cushy red couches and bust a move on the dance floor. Outside, you can enjoy the gorgeous patio with live music. Day or night, inside or out, you’ll have the best time!

24 Hour Fitness does a body good
When all else fails, hit the gym. Working out is a superb way to get into shape, clear your head, and improve your mental health. Oh, and did we mention it’s also a fantastic way to meet girls?
The 24 Hour Fitness Super-Sport Gym on Kapiolani Blvd is easily one of the most active social settings in town. Almost every hour of the day, it’s a hive of activity, bustling with sexy girls working on their bodies. If you’re into fit chicks, then it’s probably the best place to score hookups in Honolulu.

Ali’i Coffee is one of the hippest places for HPU students to blow off steam
If you’re looking to meet some hot girls who are down for anything, you definitely want college babes. The coeds are wild, uninhibited, and unburdened by things like needing to get up in the morning for a job. They’ll skip class for the right guy.
If you’re after those HPU cuties, head over to Ali’l Coffee on South Beretania St. This Arts District coffee shop is a mecca for the college girls. You’ll never go more than a half hour without seeing a group of hotties pass through. Getting an education was never so much fun.
Island Brew Coffeehouse is a relaxed hookup spot
Sometimes, you aren’t exactly in the mood to head out to the bars. If you are looking for a more low-key place to meet your next hookups in Honolulu, Island Brew Coffeehouse is it. All the coffee is Hawaiian, so obviously it is delicious. It’s located right on the marina in Hawaii Kai, so every outdoor table has views.

Other great hookup spots to get laid in Honolulu
Want more options for places to find hookups in our city? Here are a few more suggestions you might like.
Island Naturals Market and Deli is Hawaii’s best source for natural food and hookups
Healthy food markets are probably the best places, besides bars, to look for hookups, and Island Naturals Market and Deli is no exception. With an exceptional selection of organic and healthy foods, a body care section, and a sit-down or take-out deli, this is the place to meet health-minded singles. Meander the aisles until you see someone interesting and ask them where to find the mangos. You’ll be golden!
Tinder has been decent as well
If you were to invent a platform that simply displayed the hottest girls in any city, it would be Tinder. There is no other option that’s more popular with sexy girls. That must sound like a ringing endorsement. However, be aware: if you aren’t a hot dude, you’ll need to be patient.
Put plainly, Tinder is where people match based on looks. It’s that straightforward. If you can’t take a good picture – maybe one in which you’re holding a cuddly animal – then it’ll be tough going. But, hey, if you’re good looking, you have an amazing Tinder bio or you’re just a really smooth texter, Tinder is going to be an amazing experience.
Waikīkī Hoʻolauleʻa is a celebration of everything beautiful
Whether your roots go back generations or you’re a new transplant to our city, Waikīkī Hoʻolauleʻa is a must-attend event. The celebration of Hawaiian culture, music, food and more is also the state’s biggest block party. And everyone knows sexy ladies love to party.
Every year, during this annual festival, Kalākaua Avenue is packed full of sexy girls. A stroll through the festivities will leave you breathless with how many gorgeous ladies this island can hold at once. It will also remind you why so many people – ourselves included – call Honolulu paradise.
