This brew-pub belongs to a national chain that usually lays a powerful claim to leadership in every region it comes to. Freshly brewed beer flows like a river in this large space, which serves Bavarian food. The parties, thriving on the German know-how of good time, are loud and last well into the small hours to the accompaniment of live music. Maximilian’s books top Russian rock acts all the time, including bands that usually play to much bigger audiences.  Maximilian’s offers a diet menu, designed for those who cannot handle heavy Bavarian food (such as sausages and sauerkraut), but are otherwise ready for the beer, the music and to party all night.
