Washington Street Shuffle – Maxwell’s in Hoboken to Re-open?

Maxwells to Reopen in Hoboken - Buzz on the Street

Photo by Jean-Paul Picard Hoboken Photograher and Instructor

Maxwell’s, the recently closed music night spot that had served Hoboken for a 35 year stretch seems to have come back from the grave at least potentially. There were signs put up at MAxwell’s over the Labor Day Weekend that have state the bar/restaurant/music venue is looking for experienced servers and bartenders.  People interested can apply in person or email resumes to MaxwellsHoboken@gmail.com.

For those at a loss since the institution located at the corner of 11th and Washington Streets closed, there is indeed hope it will re-open. Perhaps they just needed to get rid of one of their partners Todd Abramson who was quoted on NJ.com stating:

“The culture in Hoboken is driven by TV now. A lot of the bars downtown are fighting with each other for who has the most giant TVs. That’s what Hoboken nightlife has become.”

Well that is the opinion of one of the former partners but it looks look whoever is remaining is looking at another go.  For those music fans who loved Maxwell’s I offer these parting words….  in the immortal expressions of Jessie Jackson: “Keep Hope Alive!”
