Opened circa late 50s and hit its peak in the 60s, but lasted into the 70s.
Shipwreck Kelly's was located at 270 Lewers St., at the base of the Holiday Isle Hotel which took up much of the corner of Lewers/Kalakaua.
The exterior entrance was located under red and white striped awnings, with a large anchor on display.
The interior featured an over the top nautical atmosphere with nightly entertainment from the "Crow's Nest" stage.
Since 2007, with the creation of the Waikiki Beach Walk, this entire area has been redeveloped and no signs of the original structure remain. Today, as of 2023, the footprint of Shipwreck Kelly's appears now taken up by the Hokulani Hilton Grand Vacations Club.
