Where Music Is Celebrated

Once revered as the premier music venue of the ’80s in Hilo, Willie K’s Crown Room has been restored and fully revamped. Newcomers, returning visitors, and entertainers will be completely immersed in an environment designed specifically for live performances. 

A state-of-the-art sound system and stage, adjustable concert lighting and fixtures and spacious seating for up to 400 guests create the perfect setting for Hawaiian artists, local musicians, open mic and karaoke nights. See our Event Calendar for upcoming performances you don’t want to miss.

Named after Grammy nominated, Na Hoku Hanohano award winning Maui native musician, Willie K., this venue is poised to once again serve as Hilo’s hotspot for entertainment, events and concerts.
