Little Moir’s recently opened Maxi’s Lineup, next door to its popular Foodshack. Touted as a “tropical tapas bar,” Maxi’s is a welcome addition to Jupiter’s short list of places for live music and karaoke. It’s also a good place to have a drink and appetizer while waiting for a seat at Foodshack.

Smartly decked out in murals with an open kitchen, Maxi’s small room provides a stage for performers and an area for dancing. Seating is offered at two bars and in booths along one wall, with plenty of room to mix and mingle when the place fills up.

The tapas menu ($3-$10 average) changes daily and is as creative as that offered by Foodshack. The night I stopped by, BBQ Chicken Cigar Roll, Hot Tuna Poke with Macadamia nuts, and Panko Crusted Eggplant Fries joined an ample selection of other small plates on the menu. The eggplant ($5), served with a feta lemon honey aioli, proved to be a tasty start to the meal I had next store.

Maxi’s, reaching out to a younger crowd after 9, will also attract Foodshack fans of any age.
