Maui’s bar scene is as rich and diverse as our community. We have neighborhood bars, swanky speakeasies, cultivated resort cocktail lounges, and local taprooms. The libations come in all flavors, shapes, and sizes, as do the people creating and drinking them. MauiTime talked with bartenders, beverage managers, and mixologists around the island to give you a glimpse behind their bar’s atmosphere and drinks.

KO BAR AT FAIRMONT KEA LANI
“All of our cocktails are fantastic and draw inspiration from different cultures and time periods. However, I would say our Shiso Sour is most of our most dynamic cocktails. It utilizes our Kea Lani Patron Single barrel tequila, fresh shiso, citrus, and tajin. One of my favorite pairs would be our Cane Fire with our Kobe Beef Poke. The Cane fire is a cocktail that utilizes our Ilegal Mezcal, papaya, citrus, and pipi kaula rub. These flavor profiles of acid, sweet, smoke, and compliment the umami and rich flavors of our Kobe Beef Poke. At KŌ Bar, our bartenders focus sharing stories from the plantation days of Maui through the combination of flavor profiles in our craft cocktails. This homage to Maui’s past invokes a lot of pride and passion in our colleagues.” -David Villanti, Food and Beverage Manager

“We have a wide variety of spirits behind the bar here at Lineage with a focus on small batch craft spirits. Elevated bar culture to me is using all house made syrups and utilizing culinary techniques combined with modern bartending. Innovation and balance of flavor are key! Our sweet and savory poi mochi bites from the kitchen pair fantastically with our Oh Yeah! cocktail. The tropical guava jelly in the poi mochi come together with the liliko‘i and pineapple notes in the cocktail. The addition of Campari helps to combat the richness of the chicken liver pate and gets your digestion going, preparing you for your next dish! You can serve great cocktails, but it’s going to be the personality behind the bar that truly makes your experience exceptional. We have a fantastic team behind the bar that deliver memorable experiences that keep our customers coming back.” -Natalie Hansen, Senior Mixologist at Lineage

Mai tais are the most obvious tiki drink, and our signature mai tai with black strap molasses rum doesn’t disappoint. However, our Zombie is something you don’t get at most bars and is a serious drink for tiki lovers. So serious we limit two per customer. For something simple try our Endless Summer cocktail… a mix of vodka, pineapple, and mango.
