7 Best Happy Hours In South Maui – Where To Find Kihei’s Best Eats & Cocktails Before Sunset

Mmmm… Mai Tai’s, Chi chi’s, Lava Flows, Pina Coladas, Ice Cold Beer… no matter your favorite cocktail or adult beverage to drink while visiting the island paradise that is Maui, you are sure to find some great deals at our local watering hole happy hours.

You’ve been soaking up the sun all day at the beach, tummy is grumbling, it’s not quite dinner but you’re ready for some *pupu’s and a nice adult beverage.  Here’s a list of South Maui’s top happy hours and a few menu samples. We’re featuring 7 top happy hours, one for each day of your 7-day itinerary!

*pupu [poo-poo] noun, From the Hawaiian word pūpū.  Polynesian-Hawaiian Cookery.
1. any hot or cold usually bite-size appetizer, snacks, small bites, often served in a varied assortment.

 

Showing 7 of our Happy Hour picks – In Blue Martini’s and the

Orange Bed is our condo location.

We’ll start at the top of the map, the northern most watering hole which is;

Maui Brewing Co.

This is a fantastic spot for happy hour, but it’s also great for lunch, dinner and brewery tours! But if happy hour is your thing, check out their Logo Wear Wednesdays where wearing any of their logo shirts or hats will get you $2 off MBC beers all-day-long! Combine that with their happy hour which runs 3:30pm-5:30pm & 9:30pm-11pm Daily and you’ve got yourself a great deal!

They have a great patio and the brewery sits up on a hill so you get a great view toward the ocean and sunset. Happy Hour – $1 Off House Beers, $3 Off Culinary & Classic Cocktails, $10 Pizzas, 50% Off Select Appetizers.

(I love their Panko Calamari with Sriracha mayo, lime & furikake!! Pair this with their Imperial Coconut Porter and OMG!)

South Shore Tiki Lounge
Gotta love Tiki Kitsch!

Next on our map we scoot over toward the beach where we find South Shore Tiki Lounge.  Recently voted BEST Bar in Hawai’i.

“The young (and young at heart) flock to South Shore Tiki Lounge, where bamboo and kitschy tiki decor complement a full bar, outdoor lanai, great wait staff, surf videos and a menu of sausages, burgers and some of the best pizza on the island.”

   – Maui Time Weekly

All Day Happy Hour 11am-6pm Daily
$4.00 Sauza margaritas, Well drinks from their premium well, Bloody Marys & Pacifico Draft,
$3.00 Primo Draft

Give their TBone’s Famous Sliders a try! A trio of local Maui beef sliders with pickles and a garlic aoili mayo on a Hawaiian sweet roll. 

Menu link: http://southshoretiki.com/menu/

Address: Kihei Kalama Village, 1913-J S. Kihei Rd., Kihei

 


Three’s Bar & Grill
Serrano Hibiscus-rita at Three’s

Located in what is locally known as the ‘Triangle’ and just a few doors away from South Shore Tiki, we find Three’s Bar & Grill.  Called the Triangle due to the location of several bars within a few meters of one another. Definitely walking distance if you wish to bar hop.

With accolades such as MauiTime Best of Maui 2017: Best Pupus on Maui 2017 and MauiTime Best of Maui 2016: Best Happy Hour on Maui 2016 how can you go wrong with Three’s!

Three’s gets it name from the 3 chefs, surfers and best friends Travis Morrin, Cody Christopher, and Jaron Blosser, owners of not only Three’s but also my favorite healthy noshing joint Fork & Salad (soon to have a 2nd location in Kahului!) and Three’s Food Truck which is generally featured at Kihei 4th Fridays.

Happy hours run 3pm to 6pm and again 9pm-10pm (late night HH in the Surf Lounge only)

Why not give their Coconut crusted fish tacos a try!

Well drinks, draft beer and house margaritas $3.50, top-shelf cocktails $6.50

Menu Link: https://threesbarandgrill.com/

Address: 1945 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753

 


Fred’s Mexican Cafe
Stellar sunsets from this happy hour hot spot!

Up next we head just a little further south down the beach to Fred’s Mexican Cafe. Fred’s is our Tuesday watering hole. Fred’s is also the next door neighbors to our condo complex and a quick 3 minute walk from our door to theirs. On Tuesdays during the busy season, you’ll find a line out the door for their Tuesday Taco happy hour special.  Fish-bowl sized house margaritas (great with shot of Cuervo on the side!) and plate of fish tacos make up their Tuesday special. But any day is a great day for happy hour because Fred’s has a great lanai that sits over South Kihei road, directly across from ‘our ‘ beach Kamaole II, where you can catch sunset just after happy hour if you time it just right.

Address: 2511 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753

 


5 Palms Restaurant
Can’t beat their ocean view + umbrella drinks!

If you’re not too tipsy by now, we’ll waddle over to 5 Palms Restaurant & Bar. 5 Palms is located just about a mile south of our condo and Fred’s and sits on the north end of Keawakapu Beach. If you don’t want to walk from our condo why not hitch a ride with our favorite $3 Turtle Tracks shuttle! Perfect for when you want to drink and not drive!

5 Palms is fantastic for it’s location, stellar views of the beach and sunset. Their happy hour is immensely popular so make sure to get there early enough to grab a seat. It’s not overly crowded, but it’s a more intimate restaurant with limited seating.

You can count on tropical cocktails with an umbrella and a garnish of pineapple! Their mai tai’s are good but hold out for our next up happy hour spot, their mai tais are my favorite. This place is all about ambiance. Tiki torches, tropical drinks right over the beach, sunset. Doesn’t get much better!

Happy Hours run 7 days a week from 3-5pm with Late night happy hour from 9-10pm.

Happy hour specials include 50% off Happy Hour Sushi & Pupus with a one drink minimum per person.  Select draught and bottle beer $6, wine $8 on up to house cocktails for $8.95

Menu link: http://www.5palmsrestaurant.com/happy-hour-food-bistro/

Address: 2960 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753

 


Monkeypod Kitchen

If mai tais are on your bucket list, then look no further. We’ve posted about Monkeypod’s mai tais before – they’re that delish! Crafted from old lahaina silver rum, old lahaina dark rum, lime, house-made macadamia nut orgeat, orange curacao, honey-lilikoi foam – they’re a departure from the very traditional but we think you’ll love it!

This is a hopping-busy restaurant so plan accordingly. Happy hour is popular as is dinner (reservations recommended)

Two happy hours each day, I recommend the earlier to catch sunset if you time it just right. Happy Hours run from 3pm-5:30pm and 9pm-11pm.

$4.75 for beers originally $9 and under, $7 for beers $9-$11, $10 for beers $12 and over.

Ocean Vodka cocktails $6, White and red wines by the glass $6, Culinary cocktails $8

50% off All Appetizers
with the exception of the raw bar mixed plate and poke tacos. Pizzas $9

Menu Link: https://www.monkeypodkitchen.com/dine_wailea

Address: 10 Wailea Gateway Place, Kihei, HI 96753

 


Mulligan’s On The Blue
Sunset view from Mulligan’s lanai

Last up on our Happy Hour train is Mulligan’s! Come experience our “Irish Aloha” on the south coast of Maui! Maui’s only Irish Pub! Mulligan’s is a happening pub well known for their daily live entertainment and pub grub!

Located in Wailea, just a hop, skip and a jump from our condo, at the Wailea Blue [Golf] Course’s 19th hole. Mulligan’s is well known for their nightly entertainment.

Head over for a pint, cocktail or Whisky and some pub grinds and hang out for the entertainment. Don’t expect three asparagus spears with a twig of thyme here, you will find decent pub fare, the food is good, filling and the beer and whisky menu will impress!

Happy Hour Beverages – Jameson, Powers & Tullamore Dew $7, Imported Bottled Beer $5, Well Drinks and House Wines $6, Domestic Draft Beer $4, Mai Tai’s & Mojitos $7, Domestic Bottled Beer $4

Mulligans’ Happy Hour runs 2pm-5pm & 10pm-Midnight, Daily.  33% Off Food Items / Beverages as listed on their menu

Kohola Brewery Lahaina Pouring Their Heart Into Craft Brew

Kohola Brewery Lahaina
Kohola Brewery Lahaina Pouring Their Heart Into Craft Brew

Kohola Brewery Lahaina.  Last week we visited Maui Brewing Co for a look at what’s on tap in South Maui – today we’ll see what’s brewing up on the West side in Lahaina.

Kohola Brewery was born of the dreams of two couples, William and Susan Ramirez and Ian and Christine Elumba of Southern California. Home brewers taking their dreams to a new level!

The brewery was purchased from the former owners, Maui Brewing Co. after they expanded into South Maui. The fit was perfect!  After much remodeling and reconfiguring of equipment to meet their unique needs, the brewery opened their doors to the thirsty in December of 2016.

From Kohola’s web site;

Kohola Brewery is a local, independent craft brewery located in the heart of Lahaina, Maui. We believe that good beer makes everything else better. Beer is one of those special things in life that brings people together. We pour our hearts and passion into a pint and share our craft to those who enjoy our extraordinary brews.  We are your local brewery. We are Lahaina-brewed.
 
Kohola beers are now served in 80 draft handles in 50 bars, restaurants and resorts on Maui, as well as several places in Oahu and Kauai.
 
All of our Beers are brewed and packaged locally here in Lahaina, Maui. Flights of 4, 6 and 8 are available. Happy Hour is 4-9PM Daily
 
For the uninitiated, Kohola means Whale in the Hawaiian language and is represented in their unique and simple logo.

Year Round Beers

Kohola Brewery Lahaina

 

Kohola Brewery Lahaina

 
Let’s take a look at what’s on tap!   Year Round Beers-

Talk Story Pale Ale – American, 5.1% ABV, A smooth, grainy, and slightly bready, classic Pale Ale. This flavor matches beautifully with the citrus, tangerine flavors and aromas of Chinook, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria and Citra hops. Locals in Hawaii love to chat — or what we say talk story. This is what this beer truly represents, good times with friends and Ohana. Malt: 2-Row, Vienna Hops: Citra, Chinook, Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic Yeast: House Ale.

Lokahi Pilsner Pilsner – German, 5.5% ABV, Our best-selling beer, a German Style Pilsner, presents a slightly grainy, pilsner malt sweetness to the nose and mouth. Its crisp hop bitterness from Tettnang hops is accentuated by a moderate sulfate rich water profile, this pale-yellow lager is conditioned for 6-8 weeks to give it a perfect flavor and aroma profile to compliment the beautiful island of Maui! Lokahi is the Hawaiian word for “in unity, harmony, and peace”. Malt: Pilsner Hops: Tettnang, Hallertau Magnum Yeast: Bohemian Lager.

Red Sand Red Ale – American Amber / Red, 5.5% ABV, Red Sand Ale is an American-style Red Ale that is medium bodied with bready, malty flavors and aromas. It has hop aromas of earth and spice from the late kettle Fuggle additions. This beer is named after the “pocket” Red Sand beach in Maui. As red ales are not common to the islands of Hawaii, this is truly a “pocket” style in paradise. Malt: 2-Row, CaraAmber, Crystal 60, Black, Vienna Hops: CTZ (Columbus, Tomahawk, Zeus), UK Fuggle Yeast: House Ale

Kohola Brewery Lahaina

The brewery has a good sized handful of Limited Release beer on tap as well, all with monikers as unique as their flavor profiles;  Shaka Island (IPA), Pineapple Lokahi  (Pilsner), Lilikoi Saison (Lilikoi = Passionfruit), Mean Bean Coffee Stout, Mr. Ukulele (IPA), Hop Aloha (IPA), Sweet Home Lahaina (Belgian Tripel) and Coconut Hula Stout!
Kohola Brewery Lahaina

 

At the moment the brewery isn’t offering up food but Ono Tacos is their neighbor and Kohola encourages folks to grab a bite at the food truck (well really food trailer) and carry it on over. Kohola offers fun games such as cards, Jenga, GIANT Jenga and more as well as complementary WIFI, and kamaaina specials for residents.

(personal fav is the Imperial Coconut Porter -delish!)
