Maxwell’s (Hoboken, NJ) Is Shutting Its Doors In July

by Zack Zarrillo - Jun 3, 2013

Maxwell’s, a famed and important venue in Hoboken, NJ, is closing at the end of July. The venue has been a staple for many up-and-coming bands, that are now some of your favorite bands, for the past few decades. The club is closing due to high renewal rates. You can read details below after the jump.

Maxwell’s, the corner restaurant with an international reputation, is closing its doors at the end of July.

The lease to Maxwell’s, which has been at the heart of the rock scene in Hudson County for decades, is up at the end of July. The club at 1039 Washington Street is not getting ousted by its landlord.

"We were offered a renewal with rates that weren’t necessarily onerous," says Todd Abramson, the club’s booking agent and co-owner. "But after much thought, given the changing nature of Hoboken and the difficulties of trying to run a business in this town, we decided it was time."

    This a little bit bittersweet. Mostly for the reasons that I’m too lazy and cheap. This place is only 15 minutes away...
