The Mai Tai Lounge stays true to the tiki drink tradition with its Mai Tai, though the exact recipe is closely held secret. The results are the same, though, and everyone loves to tipple the Lounge’s quintessential Hawaii drink. Their ocean view rooftop lounge is also the perfect space to tie one on, too. 839 Front St., Lahaina; 808-661-5288; lahainamaitai.com
