Live Music, Dancing,

Dining & Cocktails. 

Gertude's Jazz Bar is a music lover's paradise, offering live music nightly, ranging from Jazz and Blues to Latin, Reggae and Rock. We host talented and diverse musicians from Hawaii and around the world. Gertrude's is dedicated to creating a collaborative, musical and artistic environment and our commitment to music even won us the Best of Hawaii West award for the Best Music Venue five years in a row! 


Raising the Bar, on Bars.

Gertude's Jazz Bar & Bistro has earned a reputation for “raising the bar, on bars”. Our location in historic downtown Kailua-Kona offers panoramic ocean views, with picture perfect sunsets. We pride ourselves on serving up fresh, delicious, Bistro style food and incredible handcrafted cocktails. The music will invite you in, then you'll stay for the amazing atmosphere, food, and drinks.


Where does the name Gertrude's come from?

It was inspired by American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector Gertrude Stein. She moved to Paris in the early 20th century and hosted a salon to encourage and inspire the talents of modern writers and artists. In regular attendance were none other than Henri Matisse, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway, to name a few. We hope to inspire musicians, dancers, and artists in much the same way.
