PROLIFERATE CHINATOWN NIGHTLIFE: A COMMUNITY OF ART, MUSIC AND NIGHTLIFE SINCE 1934. The undersigned support the vibrant enrichment of nightlife events, and activities of Chinatown. We support the continuation of the current nightlife establishments and hope to see more. We enjoy and want block parties and a variety of street festivals and events which celebrate holidays and culture. We enjoy and recognize the need for street closures for the safety of participants and the integrity of the shared experience. The street closures also encourage a more communal feel. We support street festivals with the sale of alcohol on the street in the manner it has been done these last years. We recognize such activities are positive for the citizens and the reputation of our City as a destination location. We support the promoters and businesses that provide music, art, performance, and activities for the citizens and visitors to our islands. This petition will be used to demonstrate to the State of Hawaii, area legislators, City and County of Honolulu, Neighborhood Board 13, and Honolulu Liquor Commission that the patrons and residents of Chinatown, Honolulu, as well as broader Oahu, are in support of the entertainment, music, art, festivals and block parties that make Chinatown a unique and important social and economic hub. We are asking that the City and County and Neighborhood Board provide support for the activities provided, rather than attempting to blockade the endeavors of promoters, businesses, and organizers who strive to build and proliferate the nightlife activities of Chinatown. Since 1934, Chinatown has been a destination for those seeking out the authentic experience away from Waikiki, a place for Kama'aina and tourist to patronize music venues, bars, restaurants, clubs, art galleries, specialty shops and more. Over the last decade Mardi Gras, Chinese New Year, Cinco De Mayo, First Friday and other events have added to the colorful activities that can be experienced in Chinatown. We seek to grow these type of events as well as the nightly activities businesses provide so people can continue to enjoy this special and historic nightlife destination on our island.


Please leave in the comment section of the petition if you are a resident, patron, or other type of supporter for Chinatown Night life.
