The place looks great with a really individual and unique look for Austin. The capitol has streets dedicated to institutions that sell alcohol and almost all of them look the same and have similar names. This is always made it hard for me to remember where they are because they're all the same to me but not with The Madison. Wavy carpets, black lights, couches, black and white tiled floor. These are ingredients that makes Madison look like Alice's grown up and more fun sister from Wonderland.
I have been here twice and loved it both times. Loved the dramatic elements in the place. Staff was friendly and everything was fun. We came a little earlier than standard weekend 6ers, but loved having someplace to have a drink and unwind a bit before the the excitement of the evening got underway.
