The Luau Hut had 2 locations in the Maryland/Washington D.C. area. Owners Moon Kim, Paul Malonson, and Bob Gibbons opened the Bethesda / Silver Spring location first, at 8407 Ramsey Ave. The second Luau Hut was on Capitol Hill, at 14 F St NW near Union Station. The restaurant ( with thatched-roof theme) was located at the street level, and the Outrigger Lounge was downstairs.

This 1967 dinner menu features the signature hula girl, which was also incorporated onto their souvenir tiki mugs.
