Private Events

Daylight Mind has dedicated its second floor of the building for private parties and events. The event space includes indoor room with custom hardwood floors, high ceilings, large windows, and accordion style doors that lead out to an open lanai overlooking Kailua Bay.  Being as close to the ocean as possible and right in the heart of Kona Town makes this a unique place to have unforgettable events.

Event Packages

The space can be rented out to parties of 25 or more (smaller parties are welcome to make reservations in our restaurant).  Our Event Packages include white linens, tables, chairs, glassware, flatware, set up, break down, and the entire second floor of our restaurant to yourself.  We require a deposit to hold the date.

Inquire for package pricing by clicking "Book an Event" to send us an introductory email.

Package fees may double for holidays, including Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's Eve.

Standard Event Package event times are 3:00pm to 9:00pm. Inquire for morning and early afternoon pricing. After-hours rates available for events lasting as late as 1AM.

In addition, the downstairs dining room is also available for rent.  We also accept buyouts of Daylight Mind, which includes both floors.  Sufficient advance planning and a deposit is required.  Contact us if you are interested to discuss options.  Fees begin at $5000 for building buyouts.
