Ala Moana Center is Hawaii's premier shopping and dining destination with over 290 stores and restaurants, including over 80 dining options. Honolulu, Hawaii.
Big old shopping Mall. Largest open air Mall in the world. Has all you need in terms of US shops if not the local authentic experience. Still good though and they try to keep some Hawaiian culture
Check out the variety of food offerings in the food court, but be sure to finish before 1pm as the Ala Moana Hula Show begins promptly at Center Stage.
I got lost, several times. Get a map, it is huge. Great shop selection, bring comfortable shoes for walking. Bring a lot of money for shopping. Not that walkable from kalakaua ave.
For MAC cosmetics: Macy's sells Mac but without pro-palettes in case that's what you need ;). Go to Mac store near the middle escalator area on the Sears/Long Drugs side for pro-palette items.
Crazy crowded during Christmas season. I like to park in the Nords structure. I'm near the food terrace, under shade & am directly in front of the shoe department!
The outdoor mall with a view of the beautiful Ala Moana Beach. This Mall has everything, from $ - $$$$ stuff! From practical to unpractical. From a food court to buffets. From an open bar to a nig
Gomatei curry Katsu, but get the katsu on the side. If you're going to Ala Moana, just enjoy the people, as many people speak another language and fresh air, awesome!
Btw it is NOT the largest open-air mall in the world. It gave up that title decades ago. I would strongly advise tourists to shop at any other mall of they don't want to get ripped off.
Three and a half floors, rammed with upscale department stores and the obligatory ABC store. Also big food court and a good choice of higher end eateries.
While you're here at Ala Moana Shopping Center. be sure to stop by and check out the Koi they are absolutely fabulous
This mall caters to Japanese tourists and locals. Lots of high-end, designer stores! Food court is always busy, but offers a good variety of food.
Park in the new Ewa wing expansion where Nordstrom will be re-located! There is tons of space on this side almost all the time...
I like it a lot the place is good a lot of shops a lot of options but it's soooo crowded 😪 I think if I went there in a weekday morning in school times I would like it more 🙈❤️
Absolutely love this mall...biggest mall I've ever been to. Don't forget to stop by the food court ;) lots of delicious goodies to eat!
Great place for shopping. Journeys has great shoes, Aeropostale is a great stop for clothes deals, and Shirokiya is awesome for Japanese products and food.
All the ATMs I found were CPB only so if that's not your bank and need cash, you might need to stop elsewhere first. Used to have almost every bank's ATMs!
We spent way too much time at this shopping centre - there's a Lupicia shop too that sells special Hawaiian edition tea sets, worth checking out.
Biggest "outdoor" mall in the US! Everything from high end Chanel to acai bowls at Blue Hawaiian. Spend your time and money here!
The bathrooms right next to Tsukiji on the third floor are a lot better than the others in the mall. They're also usually empty too.
Lot's of good restaurants here: The Pineapple Room by Alan Wong, Mariposa, Assagio, Morton's Steakhouse, Longhi's, and Shirokiya. Go grind!
Amazing assortment of high end shops and the generals. Highly recommend a trip here if even just for the walking.
I do not know what everyone is talking about, but unless all you want to eat is Asian food, there's not much selection in the food court.
Gentlemen, be sure your phone is charged before coming here with the wifey. The stores are many and "just stopping by" can easily turn in to several hours of terror. Happy Man-Shopping!!!
Be cautious of the left over food dwellers in the food court while you eat. They may ask if they can have your leftover food.
Holding hands is dangerous in the presence of vender stalls. It's like chumming the water. "Honey moon or anniversary?" Single-file and they let you slip right through.
A great collection of slippers from low end to high brow. After scouring the mall for Sanuks I found them here.
If you plan to park your vehicle here, remember not to leave valuables in the vehicle in plain view. Like and/or save this tip
There is nothing you can't find here. It's Rodeo Drive, 5th Avenue and every high fashion store you can think of.
Shirokiya remodeled; the new indoor seating is beautiful to enjoy all the oishii tabemono (delicious food)!!
Be on the lookout for hidden secret parking spots that no one usually sees and drives right by! Always open! Have an Empowered Day! : )
$1 draft beer at Shirokiya after 5pm... I hope they don't change this anytime soon... Add the bonus of the awesome pupu selection to have with that beer...
Busy mall, lots of parking (everyone likes to park in the shade though). Outdoor styled mall with nice scenery.
Love the Christmas decorations and all the holiday festivities that Ala Moana Shopping center has. It really puts you in the spirt of the Holiday Season!
Lost? There are information booths at both end of the mall. Don't forget the customer service office by the center stage.
If you are looking for great and trendy gifts for kids Animation Magic probably has something for you.
Best mall I've seen. Get a brochure map. The info map stations are set up super different.
We love, love, love the Betsey Johnson store! Even if the tea party dresses are beyond budget, it's fun to look. :)
Hungry? Grab a quick bento box at Shirokiya - 白木屋. It's delicious, fast and super inexpensive.
Best parking is located in the Nordstrom garage. Spaces are big, covered and plentiful.
CrazY how many stores are in here.. Free WiFi, check out the stage area for random performances.
Ala Moana has great eateries with so many choices anyone can find something. When you are finished here come join Jo Jo at Max Mara Waikiki.
There is a huge "hidden" parking lot on 2F behind Neiman Marcus, near Assaggios/Mai Tai Bar
The parking lot where Sears was is covered up (Kona Street access). You can't turn right.
Farmers Market on every Saturday at 9AM at 2nd floor parking on Sears side!
Go check out the Mele Trees of Light near Centerstage - Shows run every hour starting at 6pm, until closing, from November 14 – December 24.
Very nice mall. Lots to see and do. Great for having Shirokiya.
The food court is a lot of Asian buffet joints thrown into one place. It gets boring real fast.
I have fond memories of this mall especially their Tiffany & Co botique where I bought my limited Tiffany & Co Beaume & Mercier watch ;)
Gucci has great service and channel has the most outstanding collection .
