International Market Place Welcomes Five New Restaurants and Stores to Waikiki

International Market Place is excited to announce the opening of two restaurants on its open-air Grand Lanai – Moani Waikiki and Skybox Taphouse – and retailers South Shore StudioDeRubeis Fine Art and GemStudio to its curated collection of stores and restaurants.

“We are pleased to welcome these exciting new restaurants and merchants to our International Market Place ohana and Waikiki community,” said general manager Breana Grosz. “Each new tenant will provide a special dining and shopping experience for our guests.”

Moani Waikiki – Level 3, Grand Lanai
Moani Waikiki is an ohana-run restaurant featuring live music, ono food and aloha. Ohana is the foundation for the Moani, which offers delicious comfort food crafted from local recipes that have been handed down for generations. Located on the Grand Lanai, Level 3, and featuring spacious, open-air seating, this is the restaurant’s first Waikiki location.

Skybox Taphouse – Level 3, Grand Lanai
Overlooking Kalakaua Avenue, Skybox Taphouse brings pizza, sports and beer to Waikiki! The elevated sports bar and restaurant concept spotlights over 40 TV’s featuring state-of-the-art picture and sound for an immersive spectator experience, along with two full-size bars, a main dining room, a VIP Locker Room available for groups, and an outdoor tailgating area anchored by a beer tap waterfall and beer truck bar.

South Shore Studio – Level 1, Queen’s Court
This locally owned vintage clothing store offers "buy, sell, trade" services to customers looking to bring their own unique items in for trade, store credit or cash. Products include t-shirts, jackets/outerwear, sports jerseys and sweatshirts. The entire vintage selection includes t-shirts, jackets/outerwear, sports jerseys, sweatshirts, sneakers, hats and streetwear/activewear consisting of original pieces that were produced from the 1960s to 2000s.

DeRubeis Fine Art – Level 1, Banyan Court
Abstract sensualism artist Chris DeRubeis has opened his first gallery in Waikiki at International Market Place. DeRubeis’ paintings showcase the world of celestial abstraction that captures colored soaked light, which appears to spring from his artwork. Wth soft lines, he weaves together forms of metal sculpture and paint to make his composition flow in harmony. Each work is a unique original as DeRubeis uses structures and waves of light to build weightless, diaphanous forms. Colors flow seamlessly from one hue to the next, while the transparency of his layers of paint creates the illusion of incredible depth.

GemStudio – Level 1, Queen’s Court
GemStudio is a jewelry workshop where guests are guided step-by-step in creating their own ring, bracelet, bolo tie or necklace. Customers have the opportunity to see rough and raw materials bend, melt and polish into one-of-a-kind, high-quality jewelry. GemStudio founder Matt James is also the co-founder of an Ugandan orphanage and a portion of GemStudio profits go toward supporting projects there.
