Hula Grill Kāʻanapali marks 29th anniversary
In recognition of its 29th anniversary, Hula Grill Kāʻanapali will make a donation to a local hālau hula, and relaunch its popular bar menu.
“We are so incredibly grateful and excited to be celebrating 29 years of service to the people of Maui,” said Hula Grill Kāʻanapali General Manager Amber Compton. “As we prepare for our big 30th anniversary, we wanted to give back to the community and expand our offerings to say mahalo for dining with us since our opening in 1994. Guests can now choose some fun and casual selections from our Barefoot Bar menu or more elevated dishes—like fresh fish, steaks and seafood—from the dining room menu.”
The Hula Grill Kāʻanapali marked its anniversary with a $1,500 donation to Hālau Kekuaokalā‘au‘ala‘iliahi, led by Kumu Hula ‘Iliahi and Haunani Paredes. Students, leaders and parents from the group were invited to a special anniversary event at Hula Grill, where they enjoyed food and drinks including Maui-made Roselani ice cream and cocktails crafted by Koloa Rum and Ocean Vodka.
Hālau Kekuaokalā‘au‘ala‘iliahi has performed for spectators from near and far, participated in the annual Merrie Monarch Festival and helped to nurture the next generation of hula dancers. Funds from the donation will be used to support the hālau as they head to upcoming keiki hula competitions, ensuring the tradition of hula can be passed on by many generations to come.
In addition to the donation, the popular Barefoot Bar menu has returned and is available every day from 4-9:30 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy longtime favorites like Surfing Goat Cheese or Thai Chicken Flatbread, the Hula Cheeseburger, Fish Tacos and more.
