Pandora Café offers both free karaoke rooms and parking at their establishment, which has been around since 2015. Originally a sushi bar, you can still order great seafood dishes like their spicy ahi bowl or lobster dynamite rolls along with fried chicken and garlic edamame. Enjoy a happy hour special at their full bar while you wait for your turn to belt out your favorite song in their karaoke rooms.
Like many Hawaiian bars, Pandora Café offers a laid-back but fun atmosphere. There are plenty of places to relax and play casual games like darts with your friends. However, the bar stops serving alcohol at 10:00 PM and you definitely want to reserve your karaoke room in advance to ensure a night of easy-going good times.
