Concierge Desk for Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu


First known as the Hawaiian village of Kou and later Honolulu, the best deep sea port in Hawai'i facilitated the growth of Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu. The area became the island's business and cultural hub, a bar, red light district, and gateway for Hawai'i's immigrants, especially the Chinese and the Japanese. For over 200 years, this is where locals have come to shop, dine, and play.

The Chinatown and Downtown area has undergone a renaissance in recent years and has become the trendiest destination for local restaurants, clothing boutiques, novelty shops, and live entertainment. The ARTS at Marks recently received a Flipkey Trip Advisor award for best museum worth traveling for!

The ARTS at Marks Garage serves as Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu's visitor and information center, with information and guides on what to do, eat, and see. Come by and say hello next time you're in the area!
