There are two types of Asian clubs in Hawaii: Those that cater strictly to the Asian demographic; and those that are Asian-themed. It is difficult to find clubs that cater only to Asians due to discrimination issues. However, there are plenty of Asian-themed clubs. Most clubs in Hawaii are open from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., though a few stay open later.
