Mixed review

The first time I went to MaxBar I thought it was fun. There was no cover, the crowd seemed ok, and the music was good. However, the next time I went there it was pretty bad. They were trying to charge a cover at the door and the door guy plus the people inside were all really rude and not much fun at all. Hardly anyone was dancing even though the music was decent, so it was basically a boring and unfriendly atmosphere. I probably would not go back unless it was really late and I was trying to find somewhere to go in Lincoln Park

This is the worst establishment in the Lincoln Park/DePaul Area

Rude Staff, Pretentious Attitude. Bad music. The people who work at this place are horrible human beings.

Horrible service

Never going there again. A man by the name of PJ was extremly rude to us. Don't waste your time or money!

A refreshing place in the middle of Lincoln Park

Maxbar seems to be out of place amongst the college-style locales that stretch up and down alongside the DePaul campus. It offers a rather interesting decor of wood and soft lighting in the front with a seperate, more trendy club atmosphere in the rare. The dancefloor isn't the largest, but it works for the crowd. The doormen are quite courteous, which seems to be the norm in that neighboorhood and the bartenders know how to mix. I'd recommend a flight of 3 martinis for $12, although try to do early on. And while they do offer bottle service, most of the tables are simply reserved for parties of four or more.

Good place. Horrible restroom setup.

I would have had a lot better time if it wasn't for the stupidest restroom layout I've ever seen for a nightclub of this size.

The front bar is cool to hang out in and the rear dance area is a good time. The DJs are good and the bar staff is at the top of their game. Good drinks, strong pours and quick service even when busy.

However there are only two unisex bathrooms that are at the front of the rear dance area. Be prepared for long lines and disgusting restrooms with plenty of people cutting in line.

I won't be going back.

This place was truly awesome!

I loved the decor. The bouncers are cool and the bartenders were more than courteous. The bars are big and the mirrors are huge. It is rich and the lighting is dark very dark but that adds to the atmosphere. The dance floor is adjacent to the bar and is very modern new age looking with concrete and steel. Looks like a factory with plenty of room. The drinks were good and cheap as hell I got so drunk there I could barely stand up. I was there about three hours and I sincerely regretted leaving early I wanted to stay all night long and I would have if I had been the one in charge. The DJ was a cool guy I liked him alot too. I definitely recommend that if you are in Chicago you visit there no BS.
