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.

The Ultimate Bear Hug

The  name  simply  being  a reference  to  their  hope  that  their  music  “will  hug  you.”  Doll  Knight  and  Barrett Johnson’s  impromptu  conversation  evolved into  a  late  night songwriting  session  with  immediate musical  chemistry.  Their  debut  full length  album,  Just  South  of  Los  Angeles, brings  together  ten exquisite  songs,  including  three arrangements  for  a  string  quartet.  The  album  bridges  the  gap  between  timeless  Folk  and  Indie/Pop,  all  anchored by Doll’s  uniquely  expressive  and  haunting  vocals and Barrett’s  intricate  songwriting  which  have  elicited  equal  praise  and  have  drawn  numerous comparisons  to  Billie  Holiday  and  Madeleine  Peyroux.  As  they’ve  proven, sometimes  a  moment  is  all  it takes  to  find  a  perfect  symbiosis,  and  just  a few  minutes  with  the  music  of  The  Ultimate  Bearhug  has  the power  to  cast  a  similar  spell  between  artist  and  listener.
