great place to see a show – just a hop over the hudson on the path and couple blocks down washington and poof you are maxwells. I love this place to see a concert. it is so small and intimate. the shows here always rock.
never eaten here so i cant vouch for the food.
Great touch of NYC in Hoboken! – The history here is so great & good food.
The staff has been consistent and always friendly - highly recommend!
Hoboken's rock oasis is a small, savory escape. – The Scene
With the loss of booker and indie-rock impressario Tod Abramson in 1996, the club sagged a bit in presenting local and touring indie-rock bands before they hit big. After a period of different ownership, mediocre bands and microbrews, Abramson returned to helm the club alongside Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and musician Dave Post.
The little wooden room and small stage still provide a surprisingly good venue for excellent rock music, and the sound system fulfills its duty, but the club has moved with Hoboken in general toward a more mainstream ambience. But there's still good beer, warm atmosphere, decent pub grub and enough intriguing sounds to make Maxwell's worth a bus or PATH ride cross the Hudson.
Indie Rock Shrine – This legendary bar and music venue is still going strong. The same bands that end up selling out larger and trendier venues in the city (Bowery Ballroom, NorthSix, Brownies, etc.) invariably end up playing here either just before or after their gig in the city. The difference is, you'll often be able to get in to see them here. The Hoboken address still freaks out enough city-dwellers to give people willing to make a 5-minute PATH trip and a 10-12 minute walk a chance of seeing great bands in a tiny little space. The front bar and restaurant are always good for hanging out in before a show. And the back room were bands perform is a great space for live music. It's just a tiny black box, but the sound is good and the intimacy often inspires a huge amount of energy tin the performers and the crowd.
