“No Tank Tops, No Shorts, No Bare Feet.” Club Jetty resembles the scene from an old Bogie flick. There are places like it in Singapore and Hong Kong and Macao. Fans spin overhead. Guests dine of Formica-topped tables.
Club Jetty opened in 1946; it evolved from ‘Hale Aina’ (Kauai’s first steak house.) Later it moved to a larger building along the jetty at Nāwiliwili Harbor … it became Club Jetty. Unfortunately, like other iconic remnants of the past, Club Jetty was destroyed in 1992 by Hurricane Iniki.
