PLACE TO DANCE
505 Front St., Lahaina; 808-661-9873;
Long ago, our associate editor vowed to never again ink the word “swank” (ugh… so overused!)–unless, of course, it’s in reference to Timba. Located upstairs at the shops at 505–and open only on Thursday through Saturday nights–there’s nowhere else on-isle with a vibe so perfectly plush. From theme parties to internationally renowned DJs to mainstays like DJ Calcul8 and Ross Q, Timba brings the beats to get your booty on the dance floor. Oh, and the view’s to die for. Even from the balcony view, the ocean’s so close you can lick it–but you won’t because you’re too busy making out with your libations and the hottie you’re nuzzling. However you’re making out, just make sure you arrive early. Like any good nightclub there’s usually a line–though it’s one worth waiting. in.
