Maui Time provides insightful analysis and in depth reporting. We believe some issues are so important they require thoughtful consideration. We are not a “paper of record”—a daily journal of government meetings, ribbon-cuttings and corporate announcements. We decide what’s interesting and newsworthy and then do whatever investigation is necessary to get the story. We do not wait for official press releases to appear at the office before deciding what constitutes “news.”
We feel that even important stories need to be interesting and easy to read. All the work our reporters did will go to waste if no one reads them. For that reason we don’t write “inverted pyramid” stories where as much information as possible is jammed into the first, dry paragraphs. Indeed, even the Associated Press is now moving away from that, offering customers optional narrative leads for its important stories.
We write our features, essays and stories using all the color, dialogue and structure usually reserved for novelists. When possible, we also try to break away from traditional formats by incorporating interviews, quizzes and lists. We take our time when preparing stories so the writing crackles on the page. We want to intrigue, entrance and sometimes even infuriate our readers.
That means we’re often satirical, opinionated and sarcastic. Our voice is anything other than the bland omniscience that comes from daily newspapers. We don’t pretend to have all the answers, and we believe our readers are sophisticated enough to understand that.
We’re human beings just like our readers, with loves and hates, and we’re always honest about our biases. But we also look at our subjects fairly and honestly. There are more than two sides to every story, but when we feel something is right or wrong, we will not hesitate to say so.
Ambrosia represents sophistication, comfort, and intimacy. By setting a new standard of ambiance and class for Maui, we are the premier upscale nightlife destination on Maui, where music lovers, professionals, and visitors alike can mingle, network, and listen to great music with other elite party-goers.
With daily entertainment and drink specials, we offer an affordable alternative to the usual “sports bar” themed venues on Maui. Ambrosia boasts state-of-the-art lighting, advanced sound technology, an incredibly unique décor, and some of the best air-conditioning in the tropics, making us second to none. This classy, full-service martini lounge and bar is the only place on Maui for ambiance and sophistication. Indulge yourself in a relaxing atmosphere to lounge the night away in style. Our “top shelf” well drinks, exotic martinis, as well as our fine wine selection enable our experienced staff to provide the utmost in service and class.
Ambrosia is open 7 days a week from 5:00 pm to 2:00 am and is always ready to organize a special event to fulfill any corporate or individual needs one may have. We offer one of the latest happy hours on Maui running every night from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm with $2.00 off martinis and absinthe and $1.00 off all beers and well drinks. At the end of the day, one can only learn so much from a website. You really need to spend an evening here to experience Ambrosia ambiance for yourself. We look forward to meeting you and providing you with a unique nightlife experience!
