Twinkling Treasures: A Black Tie Evening

We’re excited to host this black tie, evening affair of merry making and splendor, and invite you to join us for an immersive dinner-experience that will transport guests back in time, to life in old Hawaiʻi at one of our most honored and beloved historic homes.

Upon arrival, guests will gather on the Prince Albert Terrace for a swanky cocktail reception overlooking the picturesque tropical gardens, before embarking on a candlelit, docent-guided tour of the Palace, adorned for the Christmas season. Following the candlelit tours, guests will settle into Emmalani Hale to dine on three courses of curated delicacies featuring a braised short rib with a balsamic demi. Live entertainment will feature Christmas carols, hula and lovely Hawaiian music. As the evening winds down, the strings of time will slowly pull guests from that bygone era of dinners hosted by our monarchs, to reunite them with the 21st century of today.

Black tie attire is not required, but is highly encouraged to evoke the spirit of old Hawaiʻi and celebrate the holiday season of dinning with the royal family. Aloha attire is always welcomed. Reservations are required and tickets are limited, reserve your seats today!

Please let us know if you would like the vegetarian option, or if you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies when making your reservation. Please note for food allergies: we cannot guarantee the absence of cross contamination, as we CANNOT guarantee a nut free kitchen.
