Champagne Hale at Montage Kapalua Bay
Montage Kapalua Bay launched its Champagne Hale at Cliff House on June 29, and will last through Sept. 3, 2017.
Champagne Hale features a pop-up bar and lounge for guests and locals to experience the finest Maui sunsets throughout the summer while enjoying a variety of Champagnes perfectly paired with an innovative dining menu.
The opening event coincides with the launch of Veuve Clicquot Rich in Hawai‘i, the newest Champagne innovation inspired by mixology in the Veuve Clicquot portfolio.
Champagne Hale is open Thursday through Sunday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., and kama’āina receive a 25% discount.
Montage Kapalua Bay says the event was created to encapsulate the natural beauty of the surrounding area and the spirit of Maui. The luxury hotel adds, “A historic venue nestled on the cliffs of Namalu Bay, Champagne Hale at Cliff House offers the perfect spot to unwind after a day at the beach, pool or exploring the island; the lounge is filled with lush greenery and celebrates island living with a Veuve Clicquot twist.”
“We are excited to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to Montage guests, residents and Maui locals,” said Richard Holtzman, managing director and vice president, Montage Kapalua Bay. “The historic Cliff House is beloved on the island, and creating the Champagne Hale allows us to offer new programs and amenities, and another location to see the beauty of Maui while enjoying a refreshing cocktail.”
Montage Kapalua Bay created a perfectly paired menu of Champagnes and light bites for the event.

Additionally, Veuve Clicquot’s signature Yellow Label, Rosé and La Grande Dame will also be available by the glass and in a special “sunset tasting flight.”
