Three’s Bar and Grill
1945 S. Kihei Rd. # G
Location: Deep in Kihei is Kalama Village. Just south of Foodland Market, this hub of activity offers myriad tasty food and beverage venues. In the case of Three’s, you want to wander south, past the shopping village, over the koi pond and out to their free-standing building.
Decor: There’s a trifecta of environments within Three’s (the name “Three’s” is actually unrelated to this — in this case, the name derives from the fact that three chefs opened this place: Jaron Blosser, Travis Morrin and Cody Christopher). Anyway, to get to the indoor dining room, enter and head right to the dark wood tables, tiger bamboo flooring and white tablecloths. This is where civilized eaters go. But if you take another right, you have the al fresco tables, with views of sunset and South Kihei road. But if you hang a left at the hostess stand near the front, you get to the more relaxed surf lounge.
Surf Lounge, defined: Not just for Spicoli types. Surfboards may embellish their large air conditioned lounge, but the surfing is done on your okole, from the comfy leather sofas or the chairs and bar stools. Grab a glass of liquid luxury, surf’s up!
Happy Hour: 3 to 6pm
Grinds: You might think three chiefs is too many to stir the pot. But at Three’s, they each represent a part of cuisine that inspires them, coming up with an incredibly diverse menu. During happy hour, all apps like the exotic and savory Japanese pancake, kalua nachos, coconut crusted shrimp and lettuce wraps are half price. Also half off during happy hour is the sushi and raw bar. Penn cove oysters are $1.50. Three’s does lunch and dinner seven days a week, and from 5 to 6:30pm you can take advantage of their $33 prix fixe menu.
Drinks: Happy Hour $3 Mai tais and margaritas, $3 drafts, bottles and wells. Their creative cocktail menu features Sake Sangria, Dragonberry Tini, Lychee Caiprinha, Ty Ku Mojito, Pear blossom and Mango martinis, all for $10. Designated drivers can sip Waiwera sparkling water.
Entertainment: The line-up changes weekly so stay tuned to the grid and calendar section. Gina Martinelli on Sunday, Laugh Lounge on Wednesdays and Vince Esquire on Thursday nights round out the standards. ■
