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.

Emily Gatzke is an artist that creates hope through music. Emily writes simple songs about complex things- love, family, home, heaven. Phrases turn, emotions connect, and melodies become thoughts. Emily's music sounds familiar and relevant. This evolving songwriter writes from a perspective of distances, of interludes between lives and the roads that lead her from small towns in rural Wisconsin to Los Angeles. Emily's experiences thus far have been captured in her debut release, "Finding Lighthouses". This 6 track Album carries the sound and mentality of Emily's music - that there is hope for those that believe, and that everyone may find peace within. A live show is the perfect opportunity to experience Emily's collection of original music, as well as a collection of her favorite songs re-imagined and made her own.
