With Autumn quickly approaching and a bar full of smiling faces on the daily, we're reminded of just how fortunate we are to have survived this past year thanks to all of you. A few silver linings emerged for us along the way...We now have a good amount of outdoor seating at both locations that we plan to hang onto for the foreseeable future; our wines are now available for retail and delivery (30% off list price & free delivery in DC for orders over $100) and weve been having a blast hosting virtual online tastings and classes - all of which we could not have imagined a year or so ago. And while our hearts go out to everyone affected by tragedy and turmoil, we're optimistic that the best times still lay ahead for us all, and we look forward to serving each and every one of you in the coming months.    

A friendly reminder to one and all that while we’re a first come, first served bar, we do accept reservations with a food & beverage minimum for seated parties of 6-12 guests. Additionally, we offer custom sommelier-led private tastings during off hours for as few a two guests. Maxwell also accepts inquiries for large groups and buyouts as well - please email us at for any and all inquiries.

Fallin’ For Fall
Maxwell Style

To Skool

October :
Mountains, Dude!

We’re Headed to the Mountains
Throughout October

We’re Back In Class
Throughout September

We’re hitting the books for the month of September to bring you an Old School vs. New School smackdown. Put your education to work and drink your way though a side-by-side comparative tasting featuring way too many Old World and New World style wines. Mix, match, compare, contrast, pass or fail - whatever your approach, prepare to get skooled! And the best part: Homework! That’s right, take a few bottles home for further examination if you’d like, and don’t worry, it’s A's for everyone around here.

It’s been a long summer, and with notes of autumn finally in the air, we at Maxwell Park are headed to the mountains, dude, to refresh our palettes and restore our sensibilities. So strap on your hiking boots, or your trail runners, and join us throughout October as we explore some of the world’s most intriguing mountain terroirs, and welcome the autumn wind with open arms. Do the  Dew/Dude.
