[From the ground floor] take the escalators or elevator all the way to the top floor on level 4.

[From the parking level] follow the posted signs and volunteers to the top floor for the event.

Please have your event ticket and ID ready with you. Chopsticks & Wine is a 21 and over event.

What to Wear

The attire for Chopsticks & Wine is business casual or aloha attire. Or, take inspiration from our "outdoor winery" theme! Think colors like lavender, sage, and off white. Keep in mid that it may be a little chilly for some guests inside the ballroom.

How are your getting to the Center??

Parking is available in the Hawaii Convention Center parking garage but we encourage you to use a taxi or a ride share service if you plan to enjoy the wine tastings.
