      I travel for work and rarely do I come across such a fine specimen of a gay bar. Love the different levels/rooms. Something for everyone. Very friendly staff. Go Max!

      I've only been to the Max 3 times, but I love it. (Its also a bit special to me, because I met my BF there).

      Was there recently. Older guy here. 55yrs. Certainly a great complex. Liked all the different bars. Music excellent. Younger crowd for sure but people were nice enough. Seemed to be more women than men and a young crowd at that and straight couples or straight gals...all good.. BUT nice to see such a place. Certainly worth a visit. Well done Max.

      A fun time
      This can be a fun time with friends. The customers act as if they are in LA or NYC and have major attitude. It is more fun to sit back and watch and the pre madonna's go home alone.

      Yes! Yes! Yes!
      I have traveled all across the country for work and try to stop in as many gay bars as possible and give an honest (and sometimes harsh) opinion. But I have to say, this place is so far, the best bar I have been to. While I'm not Nebraskas biggest fan, other bars in the counrty could learn something from the Max. It has a lounge feel in one part, with the most comfortable, upholstered, high backed barstools I have ever seen in a gay bar, then there is an awesome dance floor and (on a Wednesday) the DJ was playing some great mixes, not just all the crap you hear on the radio, but actually good music from the past mixed in with today's top 40's. The outside patio is large and beautifully landscaped complete with a fountain. There were two other parts to the bar that were not open tonight, one part called the disco. The bartender, named Hugh, was probably the most welcoming bartender I have ever met. The clientele was literally all ages. You had a few preteintious queens but that's anywhere you go, for the most part, people were extremely nice considering I was a stranger. There was an upstairs area to get away from everything...this was a great experience for me and has somewhat renewed my faith in gay bars! Very upscale, trendy but without the attitude...

      Awesome bar
      The Max is one of the best bars in Omaha. The staff are always great and the atmosphere is always dancing and having a good time! There are five bars with different settings and two dance floors to meet everyones mood.

      It used to be fabulous!
      We have been going to Omaha for over 25 years and the Max was always the place to go. Now, sadly to say, it has really gone downhill. Way too many of the staff has horrible attitudes. Bartenders are not friendly. It is huge and has plenty of different places and rooms to go for different types of music. But it certainly is not what it used to be, sadly to say.

      Well its a great club, other then the staff. lets just say if someone doesnt like you, and starts crap with you, you will get kicked out. even if you dont do anything, and the bouncers are all str8 and homofobic. one of me female friends who looks like a boy got beat up in the bathroom by some lesbians because they thought she was a boy. and she got kicked out, while those lesbians were aloud to stay. not a safe environment. plus there alot of str8 poeple who go there, and start crap with all the gay people, it shouldnt even be called a gay bar.

      What a disappointment!!!
      I must admit, once you enter The Max u r in for a pleasant surprise in terms of appearance. The outside is very bland and plain like the rest of the city but the inside has an interesting decor. It is definitely roomy. Besides this the place has NO appeal. I am in grad school here in Omaha and believe me, after 2 years of living here I can still count the times on my hands that I've been to The Max...That is VERY sad considering that this is the only decent sized dance club in town....After one visit, believe me, u won't be inspired to return...Like I said...very bland and plain like the rest of terms of a plain piece of white bread without any butter or jelly..not even toasted...nothing to make it appealling.

      The Max
      Great bar! Two dance rooms, a lounge and a patio bar. The music sometimes sucks, but then you can just get up and move to another area to hear something different. It does have moments of high school clique-ness, but still it's a fun place to go.

      Seen it's day.....
      OH...the max. Or best known as the Maxie Pad, since all the guys have major attitude...sorta like a woman experiencing PMS. HOWEVER, very..very clean bar...big space, several dance rooms, with a wonderfull outdoor patio for the smokers. We Omahan's use to hit this place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday was the PLACE! But, the old 80's dance tunes are worn everyone out...go if you like the Gay Anthem songs, or the Cher 2hr remix.

      If you like the typical fag bars with NOTHING impressive at all, this is the place you will want to waste your time. If you are looking for something non-typical...don't waste the time...dive bar from hell with horrid techno...not one attractive person to be found! Traveled from Des Moines and went out with my was the worst bar I had been to in years!
