A long-running Nostrand Ave institution, Maximilian Bells caters to a crowd of faithful locals drawn to the bar’s island influence. There’s a dusty, tin ceiling and a functioning pay phone, but the real draw here is the warm vibe and sleepy, old-time Caribbean radio tunes. Saturday's karaoke showcase is a highlight, but regulars have been known to break into pitch-perfect sing-a-longs regardless of day or time; neighborly gossip backed by the music of another generation flavors the space each night.
