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.

Like many British rockers before him, Michael was born in a working class town – in his case, Warrington, England outside of, you guessed it, Liverpool. But then, his story took a different direction when his family moved to Canada.
There he began writing his own songs and developing his skills by performing throughout Southern Ontario. Today, Michael has emerged as a unique multi-media artist strongly influenced by his British roots. His storyteller’s heart allows him to write poignant songs that people can easily relate to.
His music grabbed the attention of Los Angeles-based producer Charlton Pettus. Signing with Pettus’ indie label Town Records in 2008 led to the release of his self-titled CD, Michael Wainwright.
In 2009, Michael was offered the opportunity to perform as the opening act and background singer for Tears For Fears and toured with them around Southeast Asia, Australia, South America and multiple times throughout the U.S. It was during this time, that he wrote his latest album, The Circus Is Coming To Town, a release noted for “straying from broken hearted to a reckless heartbreak.”
