Happy Hour on Maui

A few discounted food and drinks.

Liza A Pierce of “A Maui Blog”

What comes to your mind when you hear the words Happy Hour? For me it means “discounted food and drinks” The food is usually pūpū style (hors d’oeuvre or canapé). Many Happy Hour foods are found on the appetizer list. In the Philippines, it is what we call pulutan. These pulutan are meant to compliment the drinks but many are still also filling. There are numerous restaurants on Maui offering Happy Hour. Let’s check out some of the popular ones here in our Kwento-Kwentuhan:


Monkeypod is a popular choice for Happy Hour. They typically have a Happy Hour from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily, featuring discounted craft beers, handcrafted cocktails and tasty appetizers. Monkeypod has two locations, one in Wailea and the other one in Kā‘anapali. This is the home for the famous Lilikoi Mai Tai. What makes this Mai Tai so special is the delicious lilikoi (passionfruit) and honey foam floating on top. It’s soft, it’s frothy, it melts in your mouth and it’s the gateway to drinking one of the best cocktails on Maui. The recipe includes Old Lahaina light and dark rum, lime juice, house made macadamia nut orgeat, orange curaçao and their famous house-made honey-lilikoi foam.

One of the featured Happy Hour drinks at Monkeypod is called “Lilikoi Mai Tai.”
