Bar addition won’t change identity of Cafe Max, says Mahler

April 29, 2011

Cafe Max owner Susie Mahler wants to assure customers the recent addition of a bar at the longstanding Culver institution is no cause for alarm.
“No, it’s not getting changed into a ‘hoochie bar,’” she says with a smile. “There will be no pole dancers, male or female!”
She points out Cafe Max has served beer for about 10 years and had a three-way liquor license for a year and a half. She says the bar, which was installed over two days last week during which the restaurant was closed, is largely about increasing night dining to the establishment.
