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.

Open Hand

Open Hand formed in Hollywood when singer-guitarist Justin Isham wanted to take his music in a different direction. Although he appreciated heavy music as a member of hardcore outfit I Awake, he wanted to create sounds in the vein of his musical hero Peter Gabriel. Thus, Open Hand was born in 1999 and Isham made his new band a full-time project, recording demos and even embarking on a West Coast tour when the group was just five months old. Following the release of their Radio Days (1999) and Evolutions (2000) EPs, the band received some label interest and continued to tour with heavyweights like Thursday, MxPx, From Autumn to Ashes, Grade, and The Juliana Theory. After signing with new management and enduring some member shifts, Open Hand eventually signed with Trustkill Records and released their debut album The Dream, a collection of their EPs, in February 2003. In the summer of 2003, following a European tour in support of The Dream, Open Hand entered hiatus after several band members abruptly quit. Although the group's future was uncertain, Isham was determined to reinvent his musical vision; he spent the summer of 2004 recording at The Blasting Room in Ft. Collins, Col., with producer (and former Shiner bassist) Paul Malinowski. The result was You And Me, a 14-track tour de force filled with atmospheric rock, progressive metal, beat-heavy ballads, and a sultry rock n' roll swagger. Open Hand released You and Me in February 2005.
