Bay Club Restaurant

-A A +A
1977, David Stringer. 1 Bay Dr.

Overlooking the Pacific at the tip of a rocky peninsula embracing Kapalua Bay, this building epitomizes contemporary Hawaiian informality. Lava-rock veneers, lush plantings, and dark-stained wood combine with creamy cantilevered concrete, while large hipped roofs with overhanging eaves shelter the whole. Double bifold windows expand the warmth of the wood interior to the horizon, providing a splendid shelter and prospect experience. Opening several months before the now demolished Kapalua Bay Hotel, Bay Club was designed to be a private dining club, but became the hotel's premier restaurant.
