5 Ways We Upgraded Aloha Friday

Aloha Friday is iconic; it’s not just a day of the week, it’s a lifestyle! It’s all about embracing aloha spirit, island vibes, and is the best weekend-welcoming celebration! At SKY Waikiki, we love celebrating our island roots and bringing aloha spirit into everything we do (check out our Aloha Life cocktail menu!). That’s why we decided to upgrade Aloha Friday and add a little SKY Waikiki flavor to it, turning it into Aloha SKYday! It’s everything you love about Aloha Friday, just…better! Keep reading for the 5 ways we upgraded Aloha Friday and don’t forget to join us for the Aloha SKYday kickoff on October 19! You won’t want to miss out on all the good stuff we’ve got planned.


1. Chillin’ on a rooftop > Chillin’ at home

Aloha Friday is all about kicking back and relaxing to celebrate the weekend’s arrival! It’s the time to unwind from the week and prepare yourself for a weekend full of fun. We can all agree that chilling at home is a great way to relax, but we can all agree that chilling on a rooftop sounds way better! Lucky for all of us, Aloha SKYday is chill rooftop vibes all night long on our open-air Kalakaua Deck…oh, and it’s every Friday! Shut the front door!


2. Get in fo’ free!

You know what they say, “the best things in life are free” …and that’s exactly why Aloha SKYday never has a cover charge! Whether you’re local looking for a chill night out in town or visiting and looking for something to do on Friday night, Aloha SKYday is the place to be in Waikiki. The best part about no cover charge: you have extra money for more drinks!


3. Bring on the board shorts

Were you lucky enough to have Friday off of work and spent it at the beach instead? Lucky… If you’re ready to keep the Friday fun going, head to SKY Waikiki! You don’t have to worry about changing into your snazzy ‘fit (unless you want to) because Aloha SKYday is always a relaxed, resort casual dress code. Yes, gentlemen, you can wear your slippahs and boardshorts. Just make sure they’re aloha print, duh!


4. Late night dranksssss

Need we say more? Late-night drinks are basically the embodiment of Friday night chillin’ and Aloha SKYday is the place to be if you want to toss back delicious drinks all night long. Of course, our Aloha Life cocktails are available, but we’ve also got some sweet specials going on for our kickoff party on October 19! The opening Aloha SKYday will feature $6 Ketel One, and $125 Veuve Clicquot or Ketel One bottles. Don’t miss out on the first ever Aloha SKYday, book your table before they’re all gone!


5. All the jams

No Aloha Friday is complete without island music, which is why Aloha SKYday is taking it one step further with live music by Bigg John Akapo every Friday! The kickoff party is going to be stacked with a music lineup featuring Bigg John, DJ Osna, and special guest Landon McNamara! Amazing music, delicious drinks, and beautiful rooftop views are the trifecta for a good time and Aloha SKYday has it all.


Just when you thought Fridays couldn’t get any better… We’re stoked for our new Friday-night party and even more so for the kickoff of Aloha SKYday! Your weekend is guaranteed to be great when you spend your Friday at SKY, but don’t just take our word for it- see for yourself!
