We are a quaint yet rocking little bar with a Northwoods feel nestled in the heart of downtown Madison. We feature local bands and the occassional rogue musician Monday thru Friday nights with styles ranging from bluegrass to funk. A great deck with friendly folks hanging out on a regular basis and excellent drink specials await you. We are located a few blocks from the Capital Square, State Street, UW-Madison campus and just between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.
