BEST LADIES NIGHT
Who else on Maui can claim casual deli/coffeehouse by day, romantic Italian restaurant by night, and all-out dancetastic nightclub soon after? Casanova, that’s who. We love Casanova—even late night when it’s packed to full capacity, there’s something intimate about the place, a warmth that isn’t just emanating from hot Euro bods. Ladies’ Nights are popular at most nightclubs, enticing females in with preferential treatment, with the lesser sex in hot pursuit. Sometimes, the meat market vibe of these nights can be overwhelming and somewhat intimidating. But the charm of Casanova—its location in sleepy, cool-at-night Makawao, as well as its cozy, smaller-than-the-average-nightclub interior—is that it takes a layer of pretentiousness off an otherwise sexploitative evening. With DJ Blast, $5 cover. Every Wednesday, 1188 Makawao Ave., Makawao, 572-0220.
