Maui Report: Lahaina Bars and Restaurants
Got neighbor island travel plans? The Hitt List has enlisted some nightlife experts on the ground for tips. Here’s what to do in Lahaina.
On Front Street, stop by Kimo’s, an oceanfront restaurant with specialty cocktails, live music and its famous dessert, Hula Pie. Have a seat on the lanai for happy hour, which is every day from 3 to 5 p.m. with half-off pupu, mai tai and draft beer specials. Listen to live music with a mostly classic rock theme on Sunday through Wednesdays, including Maui-raised Willie K. Dress code is casual, cover varies and you can check out its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/KimosMaui) to see its weekly line up. Open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., 845 Front St., (808) 661-4811, kimosmaui.com.
Looking for a place to watch the game? Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, Moose McGillycuddy’s has over 30 TVs, a standard bar menu and cocktails that include one of my favorites, the Midori Melon Moose. In addition to darts and video games, nightly dinner and drink specials, Moose’s has music and dancing every night of the week, with either the jukebox playing Top 40, a DJ spinning hip hop, or live bands that play rock and island reggae. Locals love its Service Industry Sundays, and crowds pack Moose’s on Saturday and Tuesday nights for dollar drinks from 9pm until close. Open 7:30 a.m. to 12 a.m., 844 Front St., (808) 667-7758. Check out mooserestaurantgroup.com for its scheduled promotions.
Those wishing to venture off Front Street can experience Maui’s only microbrewery, The Maui Brewing Co. Situated in the Kahana Gateway Center, the brewpub has a happy hour every day from 3 to 6 p.m. and from 9:30 p.m. to midnight, with a special menu and discounted beer specials. And, listen to live local music on Wednesday and Saturday nights. Open 11 a.m. to midnight, 4405 Honoapiilani Hwy, (808) 669-3474, mauibrewingco.com.
