The Oldest Bar In Hawaii Has A Fascinating History

With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
The Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history, from the first Europeans visiting the islands in 1778 and the establishment of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1795 to Hawaii’s admittance to the United States of America in 1959. And while we love a good history lesson as much as the next person, sometimes we would rather experience that history for ourselves, perhaps with a cold beer in our hand? Look no further than Smith’s Union Bar, the oldest bar on Oahu, and likely the entire state.
