The Top Party Spots on Maui
Between its stunning sights, myriad of outdoor activities, and vibrant atmosphere, Maui is an ideal place to spend your Hawaiian vacation—especially if you plan on hitting the town at night! We put together a brief list of some of the best places to party on Maui. See them for yourself below!
Maui’s Best Nightlife
Where your journey into Maui’s bar and club scene will take you will all depend on what sort of atmosphere you’re interested in.
If it’s a laid-back, fuss free night out that you’re looking for, go where the locals go: Kahale’s. While this bar won’t impress you with its looks—it’s a dive bar, after all—it’s a popular place with residents for its friendly vibe, insanely long happy hour (from 10:00am to 5:00pm), and its live Hawaiian music offerings. Another dive bar worth going to is Moose McGillycuddy’s in Lahaina. Simultaneously serving as a bar and nightclub, this pub gives off a sports-bar type feel, yet also has a dance floor.
While it’s not a dive bar, Haui’s Life’s a Beach bar is an ideal beachside bar for relaxing and hanging out with a beer while munching on basic bar food. Their enormous cocktails, such as the 32-ounce mai tai for $6.00 during happy hour, are a steal.
For that classic tiki lounge experience, Maui has a number of spots you can check out. South Shore Tiki Lounge borders on kitschy with its décor, but also serves up fantastic tropical cocktails and fresh-spun tunes from DJs starting at 10:00pm. Lahaina Mai Tai Lounge and Dining is another tiki lounge, but is often cited as one of the most elegant tiki lounges in the area, with rooftop dining, incredible sunset views of the Lahaina Harbor, and of course, excellent mai tai cocktails!
Those in search of a drink with a view (without the tiki atmosphere) should try Mulligans on the Blue in Wailea. An Irish pub setting on Maui’s southern coast, Mulligans has an authentic pub interior, live nightly jazz music, and stunning views of the ocean from their lanai.
Club-goers will greatly enjoy the inventive cocktails and electric ambiance of Maui’s many nightclubs. Some of the best in the area include Ambrosia Martini Lounge and Charley’s Restaurant and Saloon, as well as the upscale club located inside of the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua called Alaloa Lounge. Just be sure you dress up for Alaloa Lounge and enjoy their creative cocktails and variety of beer!
