Whiskey is Our Focus at Max Downtown

Since our reopening in September, Max Downtown has been focused on collecting the most exciting and exclusive whiskies available in the market. With the extraordinary demand for this category of drinks, we have seen great response from our guests and the trend continues.  One of the most exciting aspects of our whiskey program – aside from the addition of the Whiskey Wall – is the addition of Whiskey Flights. This is a great opportunity for anyone to taste a range of items in a comparative manner, really get to know the differences between the styles and learn a bit about various whiskey categories.

To start, we will be featuring the following combinations for whiskey flights through the month of December:
