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.

he southern-stained Americana project from journeyman Aaron Kyle, Geronimo Getty is a starkly honest and personal voyage inward for the former Le Switch frontman. Though it may be his most assured work, it's certainly not Kyle's first rodeo—as the vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Le Switch, Kyle and Co. quickly rose to prominence over the past several years within the L.A. ranks as one of the town's finest indie bands. A barroom brawl of nicotine'd vocals and boozy country-rock guided by moody popcraft. And when Le Switch danced its last waltz in 2011, Kyle quickly set his sights on something a bit more quietly intense and personal: Geronimo Getty. A means by which to the explore the Venn Diagram of roots genres—country, Americana, and folk—that have always spun in the periphery of his music, GG finds Kyle's musical background and history coming into full bloom over a warm and whiskey-soaked loam of distinctly American music. Darkness Hides is the first salvo of this new project. Mostly recorded within the confines of Kyle's basement with Le Switch bandmate and guitarist Christopher Harrison (with a few touches from the home studios of Radar Bros.' Jim Putnam and Le Switch's Joe Napolitano), along with Seb Baily (Division Day; Imaad Wasif) on bass and Brian Soika (Les Blanks) on drums, the disc was mixed by Jeff Halbert (Nick Cave, St. Vincent, The Californian) and produced by Kyle and Harrison. "Aaron Kyle has dialed it back, but in no way should the Los Angeles singer-songwriter's new approach be considered a retreat. As frontman of the swampy Americana outfit Le Switch, Kyle's big, boozy vocals were fit for a New Orleans saloon. Now doing business as Geronimo Getty, he brings tempered, tremulous tones to the table on his new EP, "Darkness Hides." Geronimo Getty's country-fried stylings are more Man in Black (or Waylon and Willie) than Mardi Gras, and a host of local players bring their talents to EP, including ex-Le Switch guitarist Chris Harrison, who takes up that instrument as well as mandolin, banjo and lap steel. Morgan Germar contributes strings, with Seb Bailey (bass), Brian Sokia (drums) and Valerie McCann (background vocals) joining in. "Darkness Hides" arrives on Tuesday, and it'll make you glad Kyle didn't." -BuzzbandsLA
