CPB Currents: Tidepools - April 28

Mahalo for being part of the Tidepools community.

Dive in to this month’s tips to maximize your Tidepools visit, view resources for small businesses, and find out what’s new from Aloha Beer Downtown.

“Tidepools is a hidden gem in downtown Honolulu. It’s a great venue at a convenient location. This is my go-to place when I need to host meetings, get work done or want to order coffee. If you haven’t visited Tidepools, you are missing out!” – Jacob Aki President & Owner, Kaiwi‘ula Strategies

  What’s new at Tidepools

More seating available.

In compliance with Honolulu’s Tier 3 reopening strategy, we have made more seating available. Tables continue to be socially distant at 6 ft apart and guests are required to wear a mask in public spaces unless eating or drinking.


New artwork on display.

A new art installation is available for viewing in our gallery space, PA‘I Arts at Kou. The exhibit titled `A`AHU KOU I ka nui manu features artwork by Kānaka Maoli artists Brook Kapukuniahi Parker and Kāwika Lum-Nelmida. These pieces will be displayed until July and are available for sale through PA`I Foundation (808) 844-2001 or email [email protected].

Hawaii artists are encouraged to submit their work to be considered for upcoming exhibits. The PA‘I Arts at Kou selection committee is reviewing submissions through September 1, 2021.


Coworking tips: how to maximize your visit

If you’re accustomed to working in an office setting with privacy, noise control, and distraction-free zones, open seating workspace might take getting used to but offers a worthwhile change.
