Kahala Mall

Kahala Mall

Kahala Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Kāhala, Honolulu on the East Side of the island of Oahu. In addition to its service as a major shopping center, Kahala Mall also serves as a key stop on a number of TheBus routes. It is located on Waialae Avenue, near the point at which Interstate H1 becomes Kalanianaole Highway.


Kahala Mall is home to a number of nationally and internationally recognized businesses, including Apple Store, Macy's, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Radio Shack, and California Pizza Kitchen.

Local merchants and a number of independently-owned shops and restaurants can also be found within the mall perimeter. An eight-screen Consolidated Theatres movie theater is nestled into one corner of the mall. Waialae Bowl, the only bowling center within several miles of the neighborhood, was somewhat interestingly built into a McDonald's, at the corner opposite the movie theater. Unfortunately, it has since closed down (not related to the flood, however.)

The movie theater in this mall was closed in March 2006. It has since reopened. The closing occurred as a result of flooding from heavy rains. The flood broke a hole through the wall of the theater and flowed into the mall, and parts of the ground floor had 3-6 inches of rain water. Many shops suffered substantially; some never reopened.


Local senior citizen residents frequent the mall during its early morning hours in order to partake in one of the many free exercise programs that are offered. Students of all ages are regularly found in the mall during and after business hours; they are free to socialize or use laptop computers at any one of the compound's numerous gathering areas.

Jack Lord

Kahala Mall is notable for actor Jack Lord of "Hawaii Five-O" fame, who would make walks in the mall during his later years. A bronzed bust of Lord sits outside the mall, near the California Pizza Kitchen entrance.
