There are a few notable and very positive things about Max's: although the neighborhood it's in is slightly off the beaten path and not particularly exciting, it's also very safe and relatively convenient to Waikiki hotels. The staff at Max's is low-keyed and pleasant, and because the gym is separate but adjacent to the bathhouse, the establishment draws a good mix of guys just looking to work out, guys looking to get laid, and guys potentially open to both things. The space is on an upper level and very private, but there's also an open-air lanai with a little snack bar. And Max's is open all day and all night, every day of the week. Because it's friendly and low-keyed yet with a devoted loyal clientele of regulars, Max's is a nice option both for inexperienced types who haven't visited bathhouses and sex clubs much as well as seasoned veterans (especially those who have a penchant for Asian guys and Islanders).
