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.

Lily Maase & the High Life Band

Lily Maase & the High Life Band began their tale as JP & the Gilberts, but changed their name after JP and the rest of the Gilberts clambered out of their trusty van and back into the real world. The transformation began in a barn outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, in which guitarist Lily Maase and drummer Adam Loudermilk (distant cousin of the Louvin Brothers, no less) attended a birthday party where many guns were fired, much whiskey was consumed, and at the end of which Ms. Maase found herself carrying Mr. Loudermilk home on her very own back, lest he remain in the barn for the foreseeable future rather than home in Austin, Texas, where he belongs. (It might be worth mentioning at this point that the barn party was, in fact, held in honor of Ms. Maase’s birthday.) What followed was an epic journey across the United States, in which the band won many fans but managed to be paid at first only in cases of Miller High Life, which made them both very happy and very poor. Nevertheless, the band became known among its followers as the “Champagne of Country Music,” and continues to traverse the country to this very day. Fronted by champion Tele slinger/mandolinist Lily Maase, the High Life Band consists of bassist & singer Brian Singhas and the aforementioned Adam Loudermilk on drums. Because they have been playing together for so long, Adam and Lily now know over 250 songs, most of which they will be happy to play for you if they are asked. We’ve been assured that Brian knows most of them.
