ALOHA [??l??hä] – Aloha embodies a deep spiritual and social ideology at the heart of Hawaiian culture.
It is used to say hello, good-bye and best of all… Love.
In 2004 I was given a surprise vacation to Maui for my birthday (Thanks Mom!). I immediately fell in love with the spectacular beauty and the Aloha Spirit that embraces the island. I loved it so much that I decided not to catch my return flight and stay indefinitely. Fortunately, my extensive background as a bartender and corporate hospitality trainer for a large restaurant chain in Florida helped me to attain bartending positions at several premier restaurants on Maui including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago at the Four Seasons Resort, Chef Yamaguchi’s Roy’s (formerly in Kihei) and Capische?, located at Hotel Wailea. I have also had the yummy pleasure to work at the only gourmet cheese & wine boutique on the island…Guava, Gouda & Caviar(formerly Who Cut the Cheese?) for several years. These experiences have broadened my knowledge of pairing fine wines with gourmet cheese and Pacific-rim cuisine as well as allowing me to think outside the box in creating cutting edge, island-inspired cocktails.
My passion for entertaining and making delicious drinks actually made me a bit of a local celebrity on Maui, and after repeated requests to cater numerous weddings and private events I started realizing that this is the business avenue I was meant to follow… and Aloha Bars Maui was born! Since then I have been focused on filling a very important niche within the Maui wedding & event industry… clients who want a high quality, professional mobile bar service that gives their guests a real “taste of Maui”, while staying within your budget. I’ve accomplished this by developing amazing business relationships with local organic farmers and unique product vendors from various islands so that I can buy directly from them, thereby supporting local businesses and avoiding costly store mark ups. The result is a surprisingly affordable, yet extraordinary drink & cocktail menu that uses the freshest ingredients available in stylish & innovative ways!

10/5 stars for Kristy and her team! They handled the bartending for my wedding this past Sat (Aug 24) and wow they were so great. My guests were RAVING about them (and Chandra -sorry if I am butchering her name-was a fan favorite).
I had decent expectations from them due to their obvious pre planning organization and reviews but was still just so so happy we went with them for our bar! We are big cocktail/spirit snobs so wanted something upscale and they really delivered on all aspects. Their attention to detail was spot on (remembering random things I had mentioned in a survey, keeping an eye on "possible overdoing it guests", asking if our drinks were made exactly how we liked them, the list goes on).
I was also very pleased with what was included in the package- the bar (that is a big rental savings by itself), bar decor (same- we chose their light up letters-this made me happy because I looked into renting this and it was a little pricey), wine service and champagne toast at dinner (we supplied the alcohol they did everything else), and last but not least the glassware was very nice- I was pleased to see the wine glasses were modern and elegant and not your typical run of the mill basic wine glasses. A simple thing but something that made me happy. Also- the included drink menu was AMAZING. It was an LED screen that had illustrations of what our signature cocktails looked like. Seriously so cool.

Kirsty made the process very easy! Once we got our guest count down and chose our signature cocktails, Kirsty gave us our list of alcohol to purchase for the event. She even recommended a store that would deliver the liquor to our venue. Aloha Bars provided all of the drinkware, mixers, and garnishes. The staff on our wedding day was unforgettable! Our bartender was extremely accommodating and fun. Chandra, who was running drinks, made sure she knew everyone's name, drink of choice, and was sure to keep everyone with a drink in hand. Aloha Bars made our night that much more fun and memorable. I cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 06/21/2019
