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;

1. 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!)

Address: 605 Lipoa Pkwy Kihei, HI 96753


2. 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


3. 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 on your Maui happy hour.

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


4. 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. 5 Palms Restaurant

Can't beat their ocean view + umbrella drinks!

Number 5 on our Maui happy hour list... Is number 5, of course

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


6. 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! Add Monkeypod to your Maui happy hour tour.

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


7. Mulligan's On The Blue

Sunset view from Mulligan's lanai

Last up on our Happy Hour Maui 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!

Meet The Author
We are Laurie (Lali) & Jeff, owners of Kihei Akahi unit DG13. Owning a home on Maui has been a dream from the first time Laurie set foot on the island more than 20 years ago. Year after year we have traveled here to enjoy all that Maui has to offer. It’s a magical place that calls us back time after time. Laurie’s affinity with the Hawaiian islands extends beyond just vacationing and goes back two generations. Tutu, Laurie’s grandmother came to Oahu with with her husband Robert in the 1940’s, invited by Elizabeth Arden to open her first salon at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki. Leilani, Laurie’s mom, was born in Honolulu in April of 1941. Later that year, on the morning of December 7th, while her father was golfing at Pearl Harbor Golf Course the bombing of Pearl Harbor started. Tutu and baby Leilani stayed in Honolulu while Bob returned to San Francisco and began work as a civil servant. Transportation from the islands to the Mainland was restricted and Tutu and Leilani were unable to return to their previous home on the mainland for months. Tutu had spunk and was tenacious! She wrote President Roosevelt repeatedly imploring him for help on their return passage. Eventually, she received a letter from President Roosevelt’s secretary and was granted passage back to San Francisco. It wasn’t until 2004 when Leilani was able to make Maui her second home. She also owns a condo in Kihei Akahi! In 2017 Laurie followed suit. There’s just something about Maui that is magical and keeps drawing this family back. What we do when we’re not on Maui family photo Our full-time home is a small farm in Calistoga in the Napa Valley, California. Jeff is a 7th generation Calistogan. His family was instrumental in the formation of our town. He is a realtor specializing in the wine industry and his business focus is on Pinot Noir vineyards, wineries and high end wine country estates. He spends much of his free time fishing and camping in our 1968 Airstream trailer. Laurie is an artist and dabbles in a variety of media. Fiber arts and textiles occupy most of her artistic endeavors and includes spinning wool or silk on one of her many spinning wheels, weaving, knitting or dyeing fibers. When not playing in the fiber arts world, she practices yoga, swims and is an avid gardener and beekeeper. Married 28 years, we have two adult children (Kara & Casey) and one very spoiled Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix named Frankie.
