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.

A few years ago I answered an ad on Craigslist for some folks looking for a guitarist. The thing about that ad was that it seemed to have been written directly to me; as if they already knew me. I replied, and we agreed to get together. We played music that, at the time, was new to me - a mix of country and roots and Americana, yet recalled the music I loved when I was a kid, and I had more fun playing than I had in a long time. But, as it turned out, geography and life prevented me from joining them. Then, a year later, they approached me again. They had a name, Bleu Skyes, were looking for a guitarist, and they had a new singer, Sandra Macat. From the first time I heard her voice, I knew Sandra was the singer I wanted to make music with. Bleu Skyes was her first band experience, but her voice possessed a warmth and richness that reflected a lifetime of experience, and revealed her deep passion for singing. Time went by and I left Bleu Skyes, but it wasn't long before we began this project. It's been slow going, progress made in fits and starts; members coming and going, songs learned and set aside, but it's been a labor of love all along. With Ed Esposito on drums, Andy Batwinas on guitar, and Gene Williams on bass, we'd like to invite you to join us on our musical journey.  -Doug Reichert
