Charley’s Restaurant and Saloon
Charley’s Bar is iconic. It’s a casual, comfortable, historical saloon in Paia Town. My two favorite cocktails are the Haiku Hippie, made with fresh cucumbers and Hendricks gin, and our chocolate martini is to die for!
We carry a number of great whiskeys including Knob Creek and Bookers–we are a saloon, after all. But for those who like clear drinks, since we always have fresh mint, we serve a lot of Mojitos. For people who like sweet cocktails, I offer the Paia Punch or the Maui Martini. Otherwise, we make a killer Spicy Menehune Margarita with fresh jalapenos.
We now have three beers on draft from the Maui Brewing Co. as well as two in the can. We also carry the Ocean Vodka (bottled on Maui) and Old Lahaina Silver and Dark rum, distilled right here in Paia. For more local punch, try the Maui Ocean Blues with blueberries, fresh lemon juice and a hint of basil. It’s real tasty. But I can’t tell you my drink recipe–like a magician, we don’t often reveal our tricks.
Open 7am-10pm Sunday-Thursday; 7am-2am Friday and Saturday. Happy Hour specials 3-6pm daily: wells $3, all whiskeys $5, all draft beer $3 and all domestic bottles $3, organic Chardonnay and Merlot $4 per glass. Free wifi.
