If you've ever heard the song Duke's on Sunday by Jimmy Buffet, then you know that if you are in Waikiki, the place to be on Sunday afternoons is at Duke's. Written by Henry Kapono for Buffet, the song tells the story of warm ocean breezes, live music on the beach, and lots of aloha.
Visitors and locals alike have been gathering for good times and good music at the famous Duke's on Sunday for years. Now it's your turn to experience this ultimate Oahu beach party.

Come for the perfect happy hour and mingle with locals and travelers alike as you listen to the Grammy-nominated performer Henry Kapono play at Duke's right-on-the-sand Barefoot Bar—once you hear the first strokes of the guitar strings make contact with the warm ocean breeze, you'll forget you had any worries. Sing and dance all afternoon long to some of Henry's best cover songs and originals; this 20-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award Winner never disappoints!
