The Kihei Youth Center provides recreational activities, educational programs, cultural enrichment/ appreciation programs, leadership projects and family-oriented community events. They help over 500 kids from 8 to 17 years old in a year. In partnership with Maui Thing clothing company, the South Shore Tiki Lounge is holding an all day benefit on June 10 to raise money for this wonderful organization. Erin Smith is also donating her talent and will be performing from 8-10pm.
A donation of any kind on June 10 will be priceless to the families and kids of Kihei!
South Shore Tiki Lounge in Maui Time Weekly’s Ono Kine Grinds this week. Kate Bradshaw writes, “While many of us would be happy just to sit in the shade huddled over our small vats of jungle juice, it’s good to know there is at least one place that recognizes the importance of community—and more importantly makes some tasty grub.” Click here to read the article.
Art & Culture on Maui May/June 2009 issue published an article entitled “Reinvisioning Tiki.” Covering the history of the Tiki subculture, the piece also touched on the South Shore Tiki Lounge and the new artwork that adorns its walls.

Carla Tracy, editor of the Dining Section of the Maui News had never been to the South Shore Tiki Lounge, so we invited her to try our food and she quickly took us up on the offer. Some may look at our menu and think, “Oh, it’s just bar food.” But we are very proud of the little things we do to make our food a bit healthier and more gourmet than most. Sounds like Carla took notice!
South Shore Tiki Lounge won a silver ‘Aipono Award for Best Bar this past Friday at the awards gala! The ‘Aipono Awards recognizes the best in restaurant and culinary achievement and we were so proud to be among such fabulous company. The reception drinks flowed and phenomenal dinner impressed us all. Big love for everyone’s support.
We’ve been getting some recognition lately and the people below (as well as a few missing from the picture), deserve all the credit.
