That is the main reason for people to come to south Mau’i.
Thusly, the majority of people aren’t here to party until the “wee” hours of the morning. For those that want to do some dancing and drinking, there are a limited number of bars. Hotel guests, in Wailea, are surprised to find that all the major hotels close their bars at 11:00pm. If they want to continue drinking, they have to go “off-campus”..
Mau’i County has some archaic liquor laws. Package sales of alcohol stop at 11:00pm. Bar close is at 2:00am and don’t forget your ID. To buy any alcohol on Mau’i you must present a valid, government issued, ID, regardless of your age. You may be 97 years old and look 120 years old but without a valid ID you will not be served by the package or by the drink. Be forewarned.

The closest bar to the hotels is called “Mulligans
” and is at the 19th puka on the Wailea “Blue” Golf Course
. It is Mau’i’s version of an Irish Pub. They have opened a second location, this summer, on Front street, in Lahaina town.
