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 calls the music “Razzamofunk”, a combination of Rock, Rap, Jazz, Blues & Funk. The sound is what you might expect from a kid growing up on New York City’s Lower East Side (now the East Village). It was a culturally diverse neighborhood once considered the “melting pot”; full of poets, artists, musicians, junkies, punk rockers, winos and families of modest means. From this beginning it seems only natural that Milo Z’s music would have a gritty, funky, soulful and unique edge, hence – Razzamofunk.

In March 2010 Milo Z released his 5th album entitled Throwback. This latest release has the retro sound and feel of a funk and soul record that for a moment, may just throw you back to the 1970’s. Milo Z’s first album Basic Need to Howl produced the single “Dog” which was featured in the Warner Brothers film See Spot Run and in the hit TV show Baywatch. The follow up was Live & Bumpin, recorded live at the famous and now defunct club Tramps in NYC. Next came Sweet N’ Nasty and Up On The Hill, a CD/DVD which was recorded and filmed live at the historic Lykabettus Theatre in Athens, Greece. For this incredible concert Milo Z brought with him a troupe of 13 NYC musicians, complete with dancers.

Milo Z is currently working on a documentary film which recounts this journey and captures the experience of coming from the Lower East Side of NYC to headlining at a famous amphitheater atop the highest point in Athens, Greece. Milo Z has toured the world and his dancin’ shoes have spun on many a stage. Milo Z has shared bills with the Neville Brothers, Al Greene, Chuck Brown, Maceo Parker, Massive Attack, The Average White Band, Spin Doctors, and Robert Randolph, just to name a few. 

During a performance as the house band for the NBC television show Last Call With Carson Daly, Carson dubbed Milo Z “A New York Institution”. While this may be true, Milo Z looks forward to continuing to bring his music to the universe.
