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.

The Way Down Wanderers

Rapidly becoming the high energy, youthful Americana / Bluegrass / Roots band of choice for many top festival and venue buyers, The Way Down Wanderers have wracked up an impressive number of accolades. The Illinois-5-piece was named Chicago’s Best Emerging Artist in 2014, a finalist in the International Song Writing Competition in both 2015 & 2016 and was included on Songpickr’s Best Songs Spotify Playlist that same year — all before any of its members were old enough to rent a car. It’s no surprise it was selected to showcase at AmericanaFest (2018), International Folk Alliance Conference, (2019), IBMA (2016), and BBC Scotland Session (2017).

In spite of their young touring career, The Way Down Wanderers are no strangers to the festival circuit, having already played Merlefest, Summer Camp, Red Wing Roots Music Festival and Saskatchewan Jazz Fest as well as many others all across the United States, Canada and the UK. The band has also graced the stage of coveted venues such as Bluegrass Underground (TN), The Fox Theater (CO), Park West (IL), The Vogue (IN) The Station Inn (TN) The Ark (MI), and countless others.

With youthful exuberance and a lively stage show that highlights their impressive song craft and high energy blend of percussion, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo and fiddle, fans are not just singing along to one tune….they are singing along to all of them!
