Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Maui

The Shops at Wailea has a new tenant! Located in the prime location that Longhi’s used to occupy, Wolfgang's Steakhouse Maui is celebrated for their selections of USDA Prime Beef.

Kohola Brewery Wailea

The paint is still drying and the grand opening is imminent for the Kohola Brewery location in Wailea Village. This award-winning local craft brewer understands that brewing beer is an artform and takes pride in infusing locally grown ingredients such as mango, pineapple, and coconut into the brewing process. Originally founded in Lahaina about a decade ago, Kohola is excited to be opening a south Maui brewpub in the heart of Wailea.

Le Bazaar

Maui’s cuisine and flavor options are getting more and more diverse. Le Bazaar, located in Azeka Makai in Kihei prides itself on giving diners an authentic Moroccan experience. As soon as you enter this restaurant, you will be impressed with the traditional décor, lamps, and furniture that will have you feel like you just walked into an intimate eatery on the streets of Casablanca. The unique culturally-inpsired menu options further enhance your dining experience. Chef Christopher was born and raised in Morocco and has been the head chef at many successful Moroccan themed restaurants throughout Europe and Los Angeles. Lastly, nightly belly dance performances between courses cap off your memorable night in Kihei.

Spoon & Key Market:

Frequent Wailea visitors may recall The Maui Market, located directly below Monkeypod Kitchen. Well, this favorite marketplace and deli has rebranded itself as Spoon & Key Market and moved into a much larger space on the second floor of Wailea Village. Serving up handcrafted paninis, wraps, banh mis and artisanal snacks during the day, the dining establishment reinvents itself on Friday and Saturday nights with impressive dinner services. Make reservations before hand to secure a table at this exclusive dining experience that features new menus each week

Tikihau Lounge:

Craft cocktail enthusiasts will get a kick out of this new tiki-inspired lounge opened up in Wailea just above the Shops at Wailea. Open until 11pm, this is the perfect option for the pre-dinner happy hour or the post-dinner night cap. Featuring colorful drinks with clever names like “It Takes Two to Mango”, “Snoop PPOG”, “Purple Rain” and “Take Me to Monkeytown”, we bet there will be an Instagram post or two of you holding your tasty drink.

Cool Cat Café

Cool Cat Café was one of Lahaina’s treasures located just across from the Banyan Tree. The fan-favorite burger joint had served up some of the best burgers on the island for 20 years and had quite the following. The Maui community was excited to see the popular burger joint re-open in June, this time in south Maui. Stop by for a wide selection of custom burgers and their famous adult milk shakes that feature shots of peanut butter flavored whiskey and local Maui-made ice creams.
