Best Hotel Bars on Maui

Alaloa Lounge, Ritz Carlton

Alaloa Lounge, Ritz Carlton

Every seat in this lobby bar faces an elaborate piece of art: The interior bar features a lava rock wall with a red, lava-inspired inlay; and the seats on the patio display nature’s art, with views across the channel towards Moloka‘i. The specialty cocktails and pupu menu are exceptional on any evening, but the live music performances held Thursday to Monday are a particular draw.

Does it get better than a sports bar set right on the beach, screening football at 7 a.m.? The nine TVs in this Ka‘anapali pool bar mean you’ll never miss the big game, and the drink specials and pitchers are surprisingly reasonable considering the luxurious setting. 4ba57feaf964a5200d0d39e3

The hand-rolled sushi and local beers on tap are enough to draw you in, but it’s the view of the ocean from your barstool that will make you want to stay. With live music every night, the classy combo of upscale and casual has made spot this a Ka‘anapali favorite.

Lobby Lounge, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

Lobby Lounge, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

It’s sexy, it’s swanky, and there’s live music each night—just what you’d expect from a Four Seasons Bar. Stop by at sunset for the evening hula shows beginning at 5:30 p.m., and stay for the food and specialty cocktails, like the Maui Elite—made with 100-year-aged Rémy Martin Louis XIII.

Paniolo Lounge, Travaasa Hana

Paniolo Lounge, Travaasa Hana

Some nights of the week are mellow and casual here, but the Thursday and Friday live music jams are as authentic as Hawaiian music gets. It’s common for entire families to entertain with their ukulele, singing, and hula, and the community atmosphere at this local pa‘ina (party) defines the spirit of aloha.
