PLACE TO DANCE, Winner Timba Maui Address: 505 Front St., Lahaina, HI 96761 Phone: 808-661-9873 Website: http://www.timbamaui.com Long ago, our associate editor vowed to never again ink the word “swank” (ugh... so overused!)--unless, of course, it’s in reference to Timba. Located upstairs at the shops at 505--and open only on Thursday through Saturday nights--there’s nowhere else on-isle with a vibe so perfectly plush. From theme parties to internationally renowned DJs to mainstays like DJ Calcul8 and Ross Q, Timba brings the beats to get your booty on the dance floor. Oh, and the view’s to die for. Even from the balcony view, the ocean’s so close you can lick it--but you won’t because you’re too busy making out with your libations and the hottie you’re nuzzling. However you’re making out, just make sure you arrive early. Like any good nightclub there’s usually a line--though it’s one worth waiting. in.

I don’t feel qualified to write about the best dance spot, since I can’t dance. My brain gets so embarrassed that I even attempt it, that it shuts down every syntax in my body, stopping me mid-movement. In a sea of beautiful gyrating bodies, I’m feebly trying to raise the roof. Even Timba’s great music, amazing beach view and outright gorgeous and relaxed interior can’t put me at ease. I’m the girl that volunteers to hold my friends’ purses. But if you’re kinetically blessed, you will love Timba’s. Go ahead, move your booty on the dance floor—I’ll watch your stuff. 505 Front St. Ste 212, Lahaina 808-661-9873
