Four good reasons to visit Maui’s Warren & Annabelle’s


It’s no secret that people from all over the US and the world travel to Maui to experience the lush tropical environment and beaches of this special island. (Not to mention the luaus and varied Hawaiian cultural shows.) But to be on Maui and not partake in other forms of high-profile entertainment means depriving yourself of a lot.

So next time you’re on Maui, be sure to visit Warren & Annabelle’s Magic!, an upscale comedy nightclub on Front Street in Lahaina that offers one of the best things to do on the Kaanapali at night. side of Maui. This personal magic show in an intimate setting will amaze you with “How did he do that?” surprise. It’s never been so much fun to be stunned!

Which brings me to the first reason why you should visit Warren & Annabelle’s. Owner and comedy magician Warren Gibson puts on a great Las-Vegas-worthy show, and when he’s not performing, the venue usually offers two – count them – two incredibly talented comedy magicians per night for the price of a $92 admission ticket. The entire evening lasts approximately 3.5 hours and it is an evening to remember. Over the years, Warren has hand-picked a very select few magicians who are way above the competition – and it shows. These superior magicians up close will do incredible things – not just with playing cards, all the time, but sometimes with lemons, walnuts, and even bowling balls – that are simply impossible to figure out. All this in an extremely intimate, small room that will amaze you for a long time to come. It’s the Wow factor, on steroids! Personally, I’ve seen the shows at least seven times, and it still feels fresh and new – and very entertaining – every time I see it.

The next reason Warren & Annabelle’s Magic! is a must-do while on Maui: the kitchen. You really wouldn’t expect a nightclub like this to have amazing food, but your taste buds will be spoiled for choice. Chef Hector Lopez makes 99% of everything from scratch, and it shows in the delicious cuisine on the menu. The best value is the Royal Flush Package, which costs $59 pp and includes four gourmet appetizers, mixed green salad, homemade sauces, two premium cocktails, and this price even includes your tip.

Some of the menu items include the best coconut shrimp I’ve ever tasted, crab cakes, chicken satay, absolutely delicious ravioli in creamy blush sauce (still be my beating heart), and Kalua pork quesadillas. To top it off, there’s a choice of six homemade desserts: we love the chocolate pot de crème, but there’s also a New York white chocolate, raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake and Key lime pie. Wow! It’s a high-end, high-quality experience that is second to none. Trust me, there’s nowhere else on Maui where you can eat out for a gourmet meal like this, with drinks and tips, for just $59 pp. Dubbed “Magical Mixtures,” the cocktails include Annabelle’s Apparition, a blended alcoholic smoothie with Irish cream and butterscotch schnapps. Annabelle, by the way, is the “ghost” who entertains you with her piano playing while you’re dining for the show.

The third reason I recommend Warren & Annabelle’s is that it offers good, clean fun. Unlike many of today’s performers, and comedians in particular, none of the professional magicians here use any profanity, and it’s very refreshing. You won’t cringe at the hearing of four letter words or bathroom humor. This all-too-rare type of talent and culture is impressive and exemplary. Instead, you’ll see a show — or two — from superior, top-notch magicians who have performed all over the world — anywhere from The White House to Broadway. “They’re really great,” said Lisa Gibson, Warren’s wife and co-owner of the small 70-seat venue.

Another reason? If you are a soldier or female on active duty, serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, you will receive two comped tickets. Other active duty people get a 50% discount. Admirable and honorable.

The only disadvantage? It can be quite cold in the theater so make sure to bring a sweater.

All this makes for an unforgettable time at Warren & Annabelle’s Magic! – faster than you can say, “Abracadabra.”
