Here’s a few more photos and links about the Imperial and Waikiki back in the day!
“…Disco fever! HONOLULU Magazine checks out a $2 million redesign of the Denny’s Imperial Hawaii Hotel, which includes Captain Nemo’s, shown above, “a discotheque inspired by Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Psychedelic lights groove to the exuberant beat of bright young combos. In fact, the lights are tuned in to the amplified instruments to match automatically the rhythm and the mood.” At the time, the restaurant chain, Denny’s, was branching out into hotels and its first acquisition was The Imperial in 1969, purchased largely unfinished. Denny’s hired local architects to give the property a “modern Hawaii” feel. Another attraction? A main dining room called the Aquarium, featuring a 54,000-gallon tank filled with tropical fish. Now known as The Imperial Hawaii Resort at Waikiki, this Lewers Street building operates as a timeshare. There is still a Denny’s on the street level.” Read full article here at honolulumagazine.com
