Charley's, Paia

142 Hana Highway
Paia , Hawaii
Tel: 808 579 9453's insider take:

This divey saloon and pool hall, ceremoniously decorated with pictures of its patron saint, country singer and local resident Willie Nelson (who is rumored to be part owner), throws down a makeshift dance floor on the weekends. It's a haphazard sort of party, but the locals love to let their hair down here, making it the perfect spot to begin an island-style lost weekend. On occasion, Nelson does play here, sometimes with friends like Bonnie Raitt, who might be in town to perform at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. It's unlikely you'll get into one of these private shows, but just stand in the parking lot for a free concert.

Open Mondays through Saturdays.
