The Maxwell Lounge has so much to offer for everyone from the traveling business person to the locals looking for a great night of entertainment, food and drinks. You can come into Maxwell’s every night for live entertainment. Maxwell’s has the distinct honor of being one of the more hopping and off the hook with the who’s who clientele and fun places in Music City.
Every single night you can come into Maxwell’s and hear music of all genres from country to reggae to blue and rock along with singer songwriters who have written some of the hits you hear on the radio today as well as the up and coming songwriters and artists who you will hear on the radio soon. There is a great restaurant at Millennium but if being entertained while you eat is more your thing, you can order your dinner and drink in Maxwell’s and enjoy some fabulously talented folks while you eat. Maxwell’s menu features some good southern dishes prepared in good old fashioned southern ways. All in all, this downtown Nashville bar is a great venue in which to enjoy a memorable night's entertainment.
