In June 2019, Moani Island Bistro & Bar opened at Ka Makana Ali‘i and was a dream for brothers Micah G and Caleb Keolanui. Inspired by their backyard family parties, Moani is known for its local comfort food, live music and inviting family feel. Growing up in a large, close-knit and musically driven family, the brothers got their start in the local music industry in 2002 and continue to stay connected to the local music scene. They’ve since opened a second restaurant in Waikiki and are now bringing the Moani experience to a bigger stage so all of West O‘ahu can experience well-known live local performers without having to drive to town.

“As Ka Makana Ali‘i celebrates six years this October, we are so grateful for our community and their constant support that has made us the Center for West O‘ahu,” said Ka Makana Ali‘i general manager Stephanie England. “We are thrilled to be part of West Fest 2022 and to support Moani Island Bistro & Bar in bringing an amazing music festival to West O‘ahu!”
