    Maxims: LOUCHE

    by johngayton Updated Sep 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Louche" is one of my favourite words, and perfectly describes "Maxims"

    If you don't understand the word - read on!

    "Louche" means classy - with just a hint of, not rough, but close to a word i'm looking for - and not degenerate either - at 3 a.m. words are dificult to find - that's Maxims!

    This is a piano bar just off Liedseplien - and is a brill place!!!

    Ask the piano man to play a song - put a note in his jar ( small change not a good idea! ) and he will serande you and your partner ( whoever she may be! )

    And the drinks aren't that expensive either!

    Dress Code: Didn't notice any formal code but, as usual - women wearing as little as weather will allow will always be welcombe!

    Blokes - don't have to suit themselves!

    The pic is actually a photo of a detail from a poster which is from Maxims (visit to see a very interesting poster - either me or Maxims (see 1st dress code preferably!!! LOL :))

    Cool Calm and Relaxed.from the moment you hang your coat up from the very friendly all tall female the moment you sit down with a beer as a Dutch man plays on his guitar.After a heavy night drinking this is the best place to come and relax.

    Dress Code: No dress Code required
