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 Galway Hooker Band

The Galway Hooker Band

The Galway Hooker Band is named after a traditional Irish fishing boat—of course … and shame on you for assuming otherwise. Also? Thank you very much, says bassist Paul Wilson. “That’s what makes the name perfect.” Wilson founded the Galway Hooker Band in 2007, basically by posting an ad seeking the kind of punky-metally-indie-rocky musicians who were into bands like The Pogues, The Chieftains, Flogging Molly and The Fenians and wanted to play gigs in places with names like The Auld Dubliner, Gallagher’s, Liam’s—and for purposes of this story, “In the spring, a fiddle player answered my ad,” recalled Wilson. “In June, a drummer and guitarist called. We had a little meeting and a band was born."
