best night for tahiti nui

Hi. I'm arriving on Sunday and based on all my research it seems the best nightlife in the princeville area is at Tahiti Nui so we will check it out for sure. My question is, is there a night of the week that's better than others?

It depends on who is performing. Weekends are busy.

They seem to be scaling back on the after dinner live music - been closing at 9 lately. Kind of a shame as they were getting a pretty good "scene" going there.

I thought I read somewhere that Thursday night was best, but now I can't recall why or where I read it (yeah, super-helpful, I know!).

I read Tuesday was the best, too. I think it's because the band that was featured in 'The Descendants' plays on that night. Could have the name wrong: Kanak Attack?

Monday night with Michael Keale playing is very nice. And we had a very nice meal there last week. Perfectly-cooked rib eye for me and fish for DH. Great mai tais, too, although I wasn't too impressed with their iced tea..

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Kanak Attack is indeed the name of the group that plays at Tahiti Nui - not sure what nights (probably not Monday though, Darryl plays at the Hyatt that night) - and they were indeed in the movie "The Descendants".

Great guys - good music!

Malama Pono,

Wouldja look at that - they have a website listing the nightly entertainment. Kanak Attack plays Tuesday night (nothing on Thursdays, so who knows where I got that?!).
