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.

John O'Callaghan

 Irish trance A-lister John O'Callaghan describes his 2010 as one featuring "a lot of new adventures". With his Subculture label thriving, John's crew took to staging Subculture nights, with the homecoming gig at the Tripod in Dublin a particular highlight.

John also describes Argentina and South America in general as "immense, with really welcoming crowds in really special places".


His tracks 'Striker' and 'Desert Orchid' were big in trance this year, and his Subculture double-CD mix album has just hit the stores. John also has a new studio partner of sorts - his one-year-old son Jack, who he lovingly describes banging the keys in the studio.

"He loves it," he beams.

John considers the state of trance as still very strong.

"I could play out different tunes every week, and there's a new breed coming through who will smash it in the next five years - Ummet Ozcan from Holland and Ben Gold, especially."
