Former Location –

Parts of the music video for Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” were filmed here on May 28, 1985.

While on tour supporting their debut album Bleach, Nirvana appeared at Maxwell’s on July 13, 1989. Early in the day, before the show, photographer Ian Tilton took several pictures of the band, the picture of Kurt Cobain has since been used in dozens of magazines, newspapers and websites before and after his death.

Maxwell’s initially closed its doors on July 31, 2013, and opened as “Maxwell’s Tavern” a year later under new ownership. It closed permanently in February 2018.
