Located just a few blocks from downtown Honolulu, Chinatown derives its name from the Chinese plantation workers who settled the area in the 1800s. As their contracts with sugar plantations expired, many of the workers stayed to open shops or restaurants. Honolulu’s Chinatown is among the oldest Chinatown districts in the United States.

Our branch in Chinatown, Oahu is conveniently located at the intersection of Maunakea Street and North King Street. Just a few blocks from the historic Hawaii Theatre, our location is close to great shopping and dining, such as award-winning The Pig and The Lady restaurant. Visit our Chinatown branch to open a personal checking account before exploring the nearby markets, lei stands, and boutiques. With a wide range of personal and business banking solutions, American Savings Bank can provide for all of your Chinatown, Honolulu banking needs.
