Charley's is my kind of place - Willie Nelson

 

Take a step back in time and find true Aloha.

Charley's Restaurant and Saloon, established in 1969, is an award-winning, Maui Landmark.

Charley’s is a reflection of the culture of Maui, the essence of its foods, and the warm spirit of entertainment and Aloha.

We welcome you to a favorite community gathering place and celebrated destination spot.

Charley’s is located in Paia, Maui, Hawaii; a former sugar-plantation town that serves as the crossroads to the North Shore of Maui.  Known for its large waves and ideal conditions for surfing, windsurfing and kite-boarding, the North Shore of Maui is a water playground. The North Shore is also known for its rainforests, waterfalls and hiking.

Paia maintains its small-town, old Hawaii charm, and is now a bustling destination with restaurants, bars, shopping, coffee and gelato.

At Charley’s you never know who might be sitting next to you. It’s long been a favorite hang-out for surfers, adventurers, writers, hippies, rock stars, artists, business leaders, celebrities, and all types, looking to get away and find the ultimate in Maui hospitality.

With looks to kill and a voice to match Lacy Younger sings songs about life and life's lessons. The singer-songwriter's debut CD on Big Deal/Hyena Records proved to be quite successful, hitting the top 40 with AC single, 'Something You Do'. Still Wild is an open rockin' book on life, love and surviving the ride. A Scandinavian descendant born in San Diego, California Lacy grew up with the sound of the surf and the Stones. "I was always a big Keith Richards fan, I always go for the melancholy, comin' down kinda thing....the way he plays guitar, those dirty, hooky riffs just inspire me like crazy." Says Lacy, "I wanted to be Mick Jagger or Paul Rogers, not Janis." Keith, Bonnie Rait and southern rock may have influenced Lacy but much of her natural ability came from her mother who was a gifted singer. She had a beautiful voice and played the piano a lot when I was young, music was always in our house. A powerful presence on stage, Lacy is no stranger to the spotlight. "I started taking requests at age three. My Grandma, Goldie would come grab me out of bed, stand me on the coffee table in my footie pajamas and insist I belt out 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' for a house full of martini clad party guests." By age five she began writing songs on the piano, "I was never a great piano player, I played by ear but I was addicted to creating early in my life." Says Lacy, "I tried to ignore music for awhile but was always called back to it." "Writing and performing have always been my favorite form of self expression," says Lacy, "I was around 15 years old walking home from the beach one day when I heard a band playing, I followed my ears to this building where I found a group of guys in their twenties, they asked if I could sing and I jumped in!" "That was it, rehearsal twice a week, and singing in some of the local clubs by age 16." From there Lacy never looked back. She moved to Los Angeles at 17 where she began singing and arranging background vocals, demos and the occasional jingle. Whatever it took to make a musical buck. Lacy forged ahead on her path paying her dues along the way and preparing herself for what lay ahead. Being a songwriter first, Nashville was a natural progression for Lacy. In the 90's she spent time honing her craft where the 'song is King' and a Viking princess felt right at home. During her time in Music City Lacy was offered several publishing deals but there was also interest in her as an artist. She chose to avoid tying up her songs while holding out for a record deal. The short wait paid off and she accepted an offer which called her back to Los Angeles. Soon after Lacy experienced the heartbreak of professional dreams not realized when her 1998 release was dropped. This sent her into a hiatus of sorts. But her downtime didn't last long as soon after she returned home to San Diego and the musical landscape that shaped her childhood. "I'm one of those who believes things happen for a reason, so I knew there was something better around the bend I just was a bit impatient about getting around the proverbial corner!"
