The Top Places for a Maui Happy Hour
Best Locations for Happy Hour on the Valley Isle
A great way to finish up another day in paradise is to gather with friends and family at one of Maui’s many popular Happy Hours. Not only can you find incredible food and drink specials if you know where to go, but Happy Hour on Maui can be a special time where locals and visitors gather together to talk story, listen to live music and share local wisdom.
Of course, on a place like Maui, you are likely to enjoy Happy Hour no matter where you go, but for the best combination of food and drink specials with a lively fun atmosphere, here are our picks for the best Happy Hours on Maui.
Maui Brewing Company & Tasting Room
Maui Brewing Company’s restaurant, bar, tasting room, and brewery tours are one of the top things to do in South Maui. If you’re looking to fill your afternoon with some Maui made beer education, tasty food, and awesome happy hour specials, definitely head to this hot spot in Kihei.
The reason why we love this happy hour so much isn’t just because of the specials. It’s also because their craft beers and libations are made on the property. There are so many tasty beers to try, and yummy locally infused menu items to enjoy. During happy hour, there’s also live music with Maui musicians and DJs!
Happy Hour at Maui Brewing Company in Kihei happens every day of the week. They have a Traditional Happy Hour (3:30-5:30 pm), and a Late Night Happy Hour (9:30-11 pm). Happy Hour specials include $1 off House Beers, $3 off Culinary and Classic Cocktails, and 50% off select Appetizers. For the Late Night Happy Hour (after 10:30 pm), Pizzas are just $10.
Three’s Bar & Grill
Three’s Bar & Grill is a fantastic South Maui restaurant and bar. The environment is lively, the menu items are tasty, and there’s always something cool going on. During Happy Hour at Three’s, guests can also enjoy live music in the outdoor seating area with a rotating selection of local Maui musicians.
They also have two daily Happy Hours; 3-6 pm and 9-10 pm. The Late Night Happy Hour is only available in the Surf Lounge. What makes this Maui happy hour so great is their huge Happy Hour menu! Guests can choose from over 20 menu items like Kalua Pork Nachos, Hurricane Fries; Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs, Sweet & Spicy Lettuce Wraps, freshly shucked Penncove Oysters, and a variety of Sushi Rolls.
Happy Hour Drink Specials at Three’s include discounted well drinks, draft beers, red and white wine-by-the-glass, and craft cocktails like Mai Tai’s and Margarita’s.
The Dirty Monkey
The Dirty Monkey is the go-to place for all things cocktails, food, karaoke, and entertainment in Historic Lahaina Town.
Visitors and residents love to go to The Dirty Monkey for live music, dancing, an award-winning whiskey selection, sports games, bar games, and the best happy hour in West Maui.
During Happy Hour at The Dirty Monkey (3-6 pm daily), guests can enjoy $6 well drinks and Mai Tai’s, and $2 off local draft beers and select wines. The Happy Hour menu is 50% off of their Small Bites menu, which includes: Famous Monkey Pub Chips, Wisconsin Cheese Curds, Jalapeño Poppers, Ground Beef Mini Tacos, Chili Cheese Fries, and Garlic & Parmesan Fries.
The Dirty Monkey also has mid-day and early evening music throughout the week. If you’re there for Happy Hour, you can stay a bit longer to enjoy tunes by local Maui musicians. Live music times are typically 4-7 pm or 5:30-8:30 pm.
Please note: Happy Hour is excluded during major sporting and UFC events
Milagros Food Company
Hands down, the best Happy Hour in Historic Paia Town is at Milagros! After the lunch rush, and winding into dinner hours is one of the best times to check out this corner location on Baldwin Avenue and Hana Highway.
Whether you’re headed back from a day trip to Hana, or looking for a refreshing cocktail after a day at a North Shore beach, Milagros has you covered.
Happy Hour (3-6 pm) specials include $5 House Mai Tai’s, $5 House Margaritas, $4 Draft Beers, $4 Modelo or Tecate in a can, plus $5 wines-by-the-glass. Menu item specials are just $6 each and are announced daily.
Milagros is a great spot to check out to socialize with North Shore folks, surfers, and visitors. The energy is inviting, fun, and full of camaraderie!
Colleen’s Bar is one of the newest additions to Maui’s best Happy Hours. Located in the Haiku Cannery, Colleen’s Bar is located right next door to the restaurant.
Here is a swanky Happy Hour spot on Maui’s North Shore. Upon walking in, you almost have to brace yourself while you look around because this classy joint looks like Colleen picked it up in Manhattan and dropped it off on Maui! The lighting is low and candlelit, the custom-built bar is gorgeous, and the decor is perfect.
Craft cocktails at this establishment are beautiful to look at and even better to taste. Without a doubt, a lot of creative energy went it to developing this fine Maui mixology-infused cocktail menu.
During Happy Hour at Colleen’s (3:30-5:30 pm), guests can enjoy $7 Happy Cocktails (Aperol Spritz included!), $4 Draft Beers, $4 Bottled & Canned Beers, $4 Hard Cider, and $6 wine-by-the-glass (red, white, rose and sparkling).
Kahului Ale House
The Kahului Ale House is the best bar to spend time in Central Maui! It’s Maui’s favorite place to play pool, watch sports games, and eat a meal with a cold one in hand. The service is always friendly, and the environment is full of sweet aloha vibes.
We also love their sushi menu, and that they always have a variety of local Hawaiian musicians playing on their center stage. If you’re visiting Maui and looking for a place to kill time before heading to the airport, Ale House is the perfect place to be.
During Happy Hour (3-6 pm) at the Ale House, guests can enjoy $1 off draft beers, $6 house wines by-the-glass, and some delicious bar food items. Happy Hour Menu Items include an $11 10” Happy Hour Pizza, Mini Nachos, Ale House Sliders, Edamame, French Fries, or an Onion Rings basket.
