FIRST FRIDAYS AT THE NEW DOWNBEAT LOUNGE
First Friday at Downbeat with Black Square and The Urchinz
Celebrate the return of live music to First Friday in Chinatown, Honolulu at Downbeat Lounge with performances by local ska groups Black Square and The Urchinz
42 N Hotel Street
Honolulu, HI 96817
Black Square's sound is a blend of ska and reggae delivered with the urgency and intensity of punk rock. As reggae music was the backdrop for these Hawaii raised punk rockers, the sound of Black Square came about organically from their musical and geographical upbringing. The band's name comes from the Russian artist Kasimir Malevich's 1915 painting of a black square. The theory behind the painting was that the material matter of art was without value and the true value in a work of art was in the feeling it expressed or provoked--without leading the viewer to a specific object based reflection. Black Square seeks to do the same with their music
THE URCHINZ are a ska band from Honolulu.
Patrick Harrison - Lead vocals/Guitar

About Downbeat Diner and Lounge

Downbeat Diner is inspired by classic American diners and serves up many familiar dishes like burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes, and fries, but also focuses on healthy vegetarian and vegan options as well. Along with this, Downbeat only uses grass fed Hawaii free range beef for their hamburgers, and as much local produce as possible. Downbeat believes that good comfort food should come from good sources and should be enjoyed by omnivores and vegetarians alike.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Was there on opening night... What a great place. Had the loco moco and was so full that I had to take dessert to go (Otto Cake). Simply delicious. The staff was great. Instantly became my favorite diner."
"Even as we walked into Downbeat, the modern diner decor and cozy feel was enough to have me praying to the gods that the food and service would be up to snuff enough for me to make this a regular stop on my Chinatown circuit. We sat at the bar and our very friendly bartender - Serena - gave us menus and gave us the breakdown about their alcohol policy."
The basket of fritters are a MUST GET, though. Big pieces, a cup of caramel sauce, and fritters so soft and sweet that the sauce is almost an after thought. if you MUST get dessert, get the basket of fritters.
Monday through Thursday 11am-3am and Friday and Saturday 11am-4am.
