Maxwell’s is a legendary-status restaurant/music venue located in midtown Hoboken, NJ that has been a glowing testament to the underground NYC/NJ music scene since its opening in 1978. The club enjoyed prosperous touring and activity throughout the 80s and early 90s, at times partially owned by members of prominent artists such as R.E.M. and Hüsker Dü. The club was named “Best Club In New York — Even Though It’s In New Jersey” by the New Yorker Magazine in the early 1990s. Due to a loss of interest from the original owner, Maxwell’s was closed in 1995 and the space turned into a brewpub. However, the brewpup was a financial failure and in 1998, the club reopened with help from members of Sonic Youth.

Today, Maxwell’s is considered as vital of a staple to the independent rock community as it was in the 80s and early 90s. The full-service restaurant/bar is open to the public every night from 5pm until close, even when shows are sold out. Maxwell’s is well-known for its dark, “basement-like” 250-capacity performance space, giving an extremely intimate experience to the musical acts that perform there.

Contrary to popular belief, Maxwell’s is an all ages club unless otherwise specified.

    All Shows are all ages unless otherwise noted. This is confirmed by one of the people who works there. Don't email the booking manager, he says everything is 18+, he is wrong.
