West Maui Night time Life
The place ought to we go tonight?
I’ve been a bartender on west Maui for seven years now and I can’t inform you what number of occasions I’ve been requested that query. Often it comes from a gaggle of “singles” that’s caught on a household journey or younger couples in search of a enjoyable night time in town. Maui is a small, mellow place. Nearly all of individuals visiting are households or retirees, not get together animals. However don’t unfastened hope there are many singles, 18 -35 who come to work the eating places and resorts right here. They’re a number of the most enjoyable, free spirited individuals you’ll ever meet.
This text is designed as a information for Maui nightlife from a locals viewpoint. The next is supposed as a information (not a strict algorithm). Bars are always opening and shutting and crowds all the time change. However use this for starters and also you gained’t be disillusioned.
Monday Night time
Arduous Rock Café
Monday has been Arduous Rock night time for so long as I can keep in mind, which is humorous as a result of there’s not any rock on this night time. It’s Reggae night time, that includes music from Marty Dread (an ideal native entertainer). You’ll discover a combination of vacationers and locals filling the bar. There’s a 5-greenback cowl cost, however there are some nice drink specials and also you’ll discover it’s value your cash.
Tuesday Night time
Tuesdays go off and for good cause. It’s greenback drink night time (not simply beers all of the nicely liquors too). That is undoubtedly an area scorching spot, I recommend you get there earlier than ten otherwise you’ll danger ready in line (it barely strikes as a result of nobody leaves, so get there early). The environment could be a little “robust” inside. Don’t fear although, present respect to the locals and also you’ll have an ideal night time.
Wednesday Night time
Santa Fe Cantina
Weds have all the time been a mellow night time on Maui (everybody’s hung over from greenback night time). A brand new “off the map” Mexican restaurant referred to as Santa Fe Cantina is altering that. It’s a small venue and doesn’t actually get going till after eleven (that’s when all of the locals get off work at numerous eating places). When you can’t wait until eleven to start out your night time, head down the road to the Kimo’s bar. Kimo’s is a restaurant, with an awesome locals bar scene, the meals is okay. Truly it’s a terrific place to start out any of those nights, you’re positive to satisfy some cool locals and strike up some good conversations.
Thursday Night time
Sansei’s Sushi Bar
Able to sing some karaoke? No? Then lay off the sake otherwise you’ll in all probability end up on stage. Sansei’s is a sushi restaurant in Kapalua (northwest Maui) that re-opens for the late night time on Thursday’s, it’s an ideal enjoyable, stylish scene! There’s ½ off sushi (which is scrumptious) from ten until shut. They often shut the doorways round 9 thirty, a line builds after which they re-open the doorways at ten and there’s a little bit of a touch to order a desk. I wish to get there simply earlier than 9-thirty, sneak right into a desk and cocktail till ten, then order my sushi.
Friday Night time
Mai Tai Lounge
In the event you haven’t been to the Mai Tai lounge but, then you definitely’re lacking out. It’s my favourite place to watch the sundown in Lahaina (between six thirty and 7 thirty relying on the time of yr). The environment is lounge with dj’s spinning cool beats and enjoyable tropical drinks. Attempt to get one of many three cubicles on the upstairs deck (greatest seats in the home). Mai Tai is a superb place to relax and luxuriate in some good firm, so ensure you convey the correct individuals.
Saturday Night time
LuLu’s @ the Cannery Mall
Saturday’s are Lahaina’s largest night time out. A lot of locations have been scorching through the years however today the place to be is LuLu’s. This place cranks! Superior environment, dancing, eating, Lulu’s has all of it! You’ll discover an excellent mixture of locals and vacationers having fun with themselves. The perfect half is it’s midway house for these of you visiting and staying within the Kaanapalii space. However promise me you don’t drink and drive! Your greatest guess is to take a cab, belief me you’re going to finish up having enjoyable and staying longer than you assume. Apart from a cab solely prices about eight bucks. Be protected!
Mulligan’s and Merriman’s
Sunday’s is one other mellow night time (everybody partied at Lulu’s all night time). However listed here are two nice locations you must checkout – Meriman’s in Kapalua has an incredible sundown cocktail hour. The environment could be very upscale, so know that prematurely and gown accordingly. The second place is Mulligan’s on the wharf in Lahaina. Mulligan’s is an Irish dive bar that’s very informal and native, it doesn’t get going until after ten. Sunday’s are often open mic nights; you’ll hear some nice native expertise and luxuriate in actual island beats!
