Kihei resident and local bartender Russell Snyder, 33, needed a way to keep track of the many happy hours and daily deals happening at Maui bars and restaurants.
“Maui is home to some of the best restaurants and bars in the world. Some are a little on the pricey side, but most have a good happy hour that makes it super affordable. We wanted to create a way for people to find these awesome happy hours, and also to draw attention to some of the amazing, locally-owned Maui restaurants that might be off the average person’s radar. So we launched the Maui Happy Hours app”, said Snyder.
The free app, appropriately titled Maui Happy Hours, features happy hours and deals from over 100 Maui restaurants. Users can browse happy hour deals by city, place, time, or search for specific items like “vegan”, “dog-friendly”, or “ocean view”.
The app includes happy hours from all over the island including Kihei, Wailea, Lahaina, Wailuku, Kahului, Ka’anapali, Paia, Makawao, and other areas of Maui.
For those who don’t know, “happy hour” is a term for a period of time, usually in the afternoon or evening, in which a restaurant or bar serves alcoholic drinks, appetizers, and other food items at a reduced price. Sometimes “happy hour” is only one hour, but usually it is two to three hours in duration, with specific times varying from place to place.
Snyder said the Maui Happy Hours app was downloaded over 1,000 times in just the first six weeks since its launch.
“We’ve gotten some great ideas for improvements from our users, and we’re always adding and updating our happy hours,” stated Snyder.
“The response we’ve received has been absolutely phenomenal. It seems this app is something Maui people have wanted for a long time. And visitors love it, too,” he said.
