3 Reasons to SHOP SMALL this Year

South Shore Tiki Lounge is a locally-owned business and we are proud to be a part of Shop Small Maui. If you’re interested in supporting local this holiday season, click here to find other participating local businesses. Here’s why it matters:

What’s Earned Here, Stays Here
Local shops employ local residents, which means more job opportunities and income within our community. When you SHOP SMALL instead of online, more sales tax is generated by your favorite local stores, which can then be used to improve our own community. By shopping at independently-owned small businesses, you are also supporting other local businesses such as attorneys, tax preparers, architects, printers, etc., who support our small business owners.

It’s a Kākou Thing
When our local businesses thrive, the entire community thrives! From hosting book groups to craft classes and free keiki events, Maui’s small businesses serve as community hubs that bring friends and family together. They also keep our economy humming by supporting local artists, food producers, and manufacturers.

Mālama Mother Earth
Shopping locally helps cut down on processing, packaging and transportation waste, leading to less pollution. Also, locally grown food is likely to contain more nutrients and has less packaging.

We’re On a Boat!

The hectic holidays are upon us and you don’t get many days off if you’re in the service industry. We decided to take a day off before the busy time hit and enjoy a sunset sail on Trilogy Excursions as our staff holiday party. If you’re looking for a boat trip on Maui, we recommend Trilogy! We’ve used them on a few occasions over the years and have always had a great time. Captain Katie and her crew on the Trilogy II were attentive and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for a better day on (and in!) the water.

If you’re looking for a place to host your staff holiday party, choose the South Shore Tiki Lounge with the friendliest staff on the island! We will make sure your staff has a blast. Check out our menu and learn more about us here.

South Shore Tiki Lounge was acknowledged by the State of Hawaii and our representative Tina Wildberger. In her personal letter, Wildberger says, “As a fellow small business owner, I understand the struggles that you have overcome to get this far. Mahalo for all your hard work and contributions to the South Maui community.”

Voted Best Pau Hana on Maui

Maui Time Weekly’s yearly “Best of Maui” issue is now on newsstands and we’re thrilled to be recognized again for Best Pau Hana on Maui! We are also mentioned in the top 5 for Best Mai Tai. Sending out a big thank you to all our patrons and fans that voted for us. Being the place you love to go to after a hard day of work for some music, cocktails, and company means so much to us. We’ll see you on the lanai! Mahalo!

Memorial Day Weekend

We have a fun lineup this Memorial Day Weekend and we hope you join us at the South Shore Tiki Lounge! DJ Gemini kicks things off on Friday, May 24th and we’re really excited to have DJ Collelo join us for the first time on Saturday May 25th. We added DJ Love for Sunday night since you hopefully don’t have to work on Monday and want a place to dance. Great specials all weekend long. Don’t miss it!
