Hawaii Mom Blog: 1938 Indochine




September 20, 2021

1938 Indochine

I finally made it to 1938 Indochine, a southeast Asian influenced restaurant by restaurateur, Kevin Aoki.  The two story restaurant located in Kakaako is beautifully decorated.  We sat in awe taking in all the gorgeous decor around us.  Even the booth we sat in reminded me of a gilded bird cage.  Per their website, the "restaurant’s left side resembles a busy Vietnam street with a massive marble bar and communal table. In contrast, the right showcases a mixture of vintage wooden tables and banquettes decked out in decadent French Colonial style." 

1938 Indochine has fabulous cocktails to match the decor.  I ordered The Empress - butterfly pea infused aviation gin, elderflower, orgeat and my friend ordered the Orange Smoke - el silencio mezcal, blood orange, lemon.  In addition to their cocktails and wines, they offer an extensive list of bourbon and scotch with a large and exclusive selection of whisky available in Hawaii.

We ordered dishes to share and enjoyed them all.  I had a great first time experience and look forward to returning.  Live music starts at 6pm daily and you can enjoy Happy Hour from 4pm to 6 pm Monday through Friday.
