Authentic Hip Hop Clubs??

Are there any hip hop clubs on the island of Oahu? I'm sure they don't have anything comparing to South Beach or NYC, but the closer...the better!

Any help or past experiences are appreciated.

Senor Frogs has a live band that usually plays a hawaiian reggae hip hop type of mix, a little hard to explain but the Hawaiians love it.

I don't believe you will find hip hop a local preference on Oahu. The people I saw gathered outside clubs around Waikiki late at night didn't exactly look the hip hop type. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

Try the W on Friday or Saturday. They turn the restaurant into a club and it's one of the only places in Honolulu you'll wait in line and pay a cover.

Thank you all.

We're in our late 20's and hip hop and r&b is what we like so we were just trying to find something to match our tastes. We'll be arriving tomorrow just in time to find out what's going on for this weekend!

Bundles please write back and let me know if you found something. I'm SURE there is someting there even if the locals are unaware.

Hip Hop & R&B is pretty much mainstream so someone there has to cater to the crowd.

If not, maybe some bar owner will read figure out there is a niche there and open one.
