Located in downtown Augusta, Charlamagne’s has an upscale, cosmopolitan feel and offers a relaxing place to enjoy good food, wine and spirits, and live entertainment - a warm and welcoming atmosphere to share with friends.
Our goal for Charlamagne’s is to be a home away from home - a place where you can listen to music, watch a game, laugh, meet old friends and make new ones.
Charlamagne’s exposed brick wall shows the character of the 125-year-old building, while the boldness of its polished cement bar and subtly hung Tiffany lamps shows a uniqueness not found anywhere else in Central Maine.
The letter “C” from Chernowsky’s department store is still engraved in the beautiful stone tile on the ground at the front door. This played a major part in choosing the name Charlamagne’s.
"I was born and raised in Augusta and remember very well the bustle of Water Street when I was a child. My parents have told me countless stories about this city in their day, when downtown Augusta was a thriving business and entertainment community. I am honored to have a proactive part in breathing life back into downtown, and I hope that the contribution of Charlamagne’s will help do just that." ~ Tina Charest, Proprietor
