I was pretty one of the oldest people in this bar as its a college bar. However, I was there to see my talented friend from highschool Peter Kadar play the keyboards. He rocked the house and had the crowd yelling out all kinds of requests. People are pretty friendly here, many walked up and chatted or sang along with... More

This is definitely the place to take a friend to chat, catch up over a pint to drink and also grab some food if you're not too full from the suds. I have only been here two or three times. All visits have all been during the summer warm months. I really like that this pub has a lot of... More

Went to this bar to watch my friend play keyboards on a Thursday night. Being ahem, over the college age we were worried that we would be the oldest people in the bar. However we soon found out that there were some older people there as well. However, it is mostly a college bar. We got there early to avoid... More

We stopped by this bar because we heard some people talk about it. To enter you go down a flight of stairs, there is a lounge atmosphere. There are four floors with 8 bars. The entire place is basically two houses connected and converted into a bar. Tons of people on Saturday night and the drinks were pretty decently priced... More

I was yesterday at the Bar, and I never will return. The bouncers are very violent without necessity. Threw a man pushed to the ground without even having done nothing and at closing time pushing and throwing people out acting like animals. Security is truculent and always act together. What kind of training they have for dealing with the public?

The Madison is the type of bar you go to to get lost. And literally you can. They have 3-4 floors, with a bar on each. You can eat and then explore. There is one room on the second floor which has a baby grand, and the piano man will play all the latest pop hits/classic faves in his piano-y... More
