Our Story

Maxwell’s Group is a collection of nine unique restaurants, clubs and event venues based in Central London, committed to delivering exemplary hospitality, great quality food and memorable experiences.

In 1972 Maxwell’s Bar & Grill was the first restaurant in the group to open its doors, quickly becoming famous for its authentic American diner style burgers, shakes and cocktails. Since then, the company has grown to include a variety of venues located across Central London including Covent Garden, Soho and Kensington. From classic French Brasseries, to American diners, our restaurants offer a style of food and ambience for all customers. From circus and cabaret glamour, to tropical island beach partying, our nightclubs and event venues offer more than a good night out, they offer a unique experience that you won’t find anywhere else in London.

Our diverse venues mean that there is a Maxwell’s Group venue for all occasions. Whether it’s a meal for a family day out, a boozy brunch with friends or a sit down romantic dinner with wine perfectly paired, we have something for everyone.


At Maxwell’s Group we are dedicated to making our staff and customers proud to be part of the Maxwell’s family.  Whether that’s through the quality of our food and beverage, the sustainability of the services we are providing or just by making sure our staff feel safe and happy in the workplace.


Here at Maxwell’s Group we have partnered with many charities over the years including The Albert Kennedy Trust, Mind Charity and Crisis. Currently we are partnered with Global Radio’s Make Some Noise, helping to raise money for a select group of local charities covering several topics close to our hearts from homelessness to mental health.


We are dedicated to doing our part to make this world a cleaner and healthier one for us all to enjoy. We’re taking big steps to reduce plastic usage across the group, starting with being one of the first venue groups in London to ban plastic straws in 2018. All of our marketing and brand products are 100% recyclable or reusable, such as our Maxwell’s Group branded, metal water bottles. We have a strong ethos of serving locally-sourced and sustainable meat and fish, as well as offering both vegan and vegetarian menus too.

Our Food

Quality Produce

We’re passionate about food at Maxwell’s Group. We ensure all of our dishes are created and served with the freshest ingredients, quality produce and refreshed seasonally, while keep the beloved favourite dishes. We pledge that, to our knowledge, all of our produce has been sourced sustainably and carefully chosen to provide the best in taste and quality.

All Tastes

We have menus and dishes to suit all dietary requirements, tastes and preferences. We ensure that all of our menus have great vegan options, even our American diner venues, with dishes like our Cajun cauliflower ‘chicken’ wings and Moving Mountains vegan ‘bacon’ and ‘cheese’ burgers.

Corporate Events

Your guests’ dietary requirements are of the upmost important to us and we want to ensure they have something equally as tasty and exciting to eat at your event. We accommodate all dietary requests, so to help we have recently made changes to our event menus to make as many items as possible suitable for both vegan and gluten free customers.

Our Head Chef is here to ‘Make your Event an Experience’ so why not take advantage? If you are looking for a bespoke event menu or have a particular theme in mind, we are fully equipped to offer this service to you at no additional cost.
