A featured "best bar" on the Travel Channel and the Food Network, laid-back Down the Hatch takes its fame in stride. Located in a shady courtyard in the Wharf Cinema Center, this restaurant and bar boasts a long happy hour- from 2-6pm daily, and offers "adult" shave ice. What a way to cool off!
Pau Huaka‘i Tiki Bar, 180 Nohea Kai Drive, Lahaina
The Pau Huaka'i Tiki Bar at the Hyatt seems like the kind of place Magnum P.I. would hang out. You can walk off the famed Kaanapali beach and sample three unique twists on a Mai tai, or a locally brewed craft beer. “Pau Huaka‘i” is Hawaiian for “the end of the journey,” and no matter your libation of choice, this is a great place to get your freaky tiki on.
If you love beer, Maui Brewing Co. is a must do, especially the Kihei location where you can sign up in advance for a brewery tour. Their beautiful tap room has won architectural awards. Featuring 30 craft beers on tap, live music, pub food. Beer just tastes better when it's crafted in paradise!
South Shore Tiki Lounge, Kalama Village, 1913-J South Kihei Road, Kihei
Despite the kitschy tiki art and bamboo decor, there is a reason locals love South Shore Tiki Lounge. Feel comfortable heading to this super casual place for food and drinks right from the beach, and relish in skilled bartenders, friendly servers and reasonable prices (for Maui).
Milagros, 3 Baldwin Ave, Paia
Popular Milagros has outstanding Southwest-Mex food, but where they really rise to the top is in their Margaritas. The traditional marg with Li Hi Mui on the rim is to die for (and a happy hour fav). Or try a Jalapeno or coconut margarita. Get there early-parking in Paia is always a challenge.
Monkeypod Kitchen, 10 Wailea Gateway Place, Kihei
Monkeypod Kitchen has the best drink selection on the island. Taking a twist on tradition and served up Maui style, often with local liquor and lavish garnishes. There is also a wide selection of Hawaii craft beers and a huge wine list. Plus delicious food, ocean view and live music- what more could you ask for?
