Article: Willie Nelson, Charley's Saloon and Maui
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.
