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.

Born in Milano, Italy 1958. Started playing detergent boxes, chairs, pots and pans with spoons at the age of 3-5. Destroyed his first toy drum set on his 5th b-day which was finally replaced with a decent set at the age 14. Got interested in Chicago Blues and contribute to the start of the Mean Mistreaters Blues Band (Giancarlo Crea, Maurizio Simpsi)  back in Milano, Italy.  Came to Chicago in 1978 after meeting Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy in Milan. Tony found the true spirit of the blues at South side lounges like the legendary Theresa's Lounge, and begin to play with the likes of John Primer, Sammy Lawhorn, Ernest Johnson and later on with Homesick James, Big Walter Horton and joined the Jimmy Rogers Blues Band with Wild Child Butler, Hip Linkchain, Sumito 'Ariyo' Ariyoshi.
He opened Rosa's Lounge (1984) as a tribute to those cradles of blues tradition, and named it after his mother, Rosa, who had followed him here to help.
