Apart from the already good onsite beach club bar, next door is Ohana bar and grill and they have afternoon and night happy hour. Their menu options are also very good.

The cultural evening program was held at 5:00 but that was too early and we had to sit in the sun--no shade at the pool so we left. Suggest it be later around sundown, 7:00 pm. We liked the lei making class!
