Kihei, Hawaii, United States
The Manini Bar is the home tiki bar of Scott Taylor (a.k.a. Tikipop, Beachbumz) in Kihei on the island of Maui. Scott owns Beachbumz Tiki & Gift Shop nearby in Kihei, where he sells tiki mugs and other tourist-friendly items. The bar was created on the covered lanai on the side of their house in March 2014. "Manini" means small in Hawaiianthis teeny bar seats only three people comfortably, four if they squeeze in. The bar was mainly built to house Scott's growing rum collection, but it has become a gathering spot for friends visiting from the mainland in search of a good Mai Tai. The bar has shelves, lights, and sounds, to give it a vintage tiki feel, and vintage-inspired tapa fabric in the bar top.
