Madrone Art Bar

Top choice bar in The Haight & Hayes Valley

Drinking becomes an art form at this Victorian parlor crammed with graffiti installations and absinthe fountains. Motown Mondays feature the Ike Turner drink special – Hennessy served with a slap – but nothing beats the monthly Prince/Michael Jackson throw-down dance party. Performers redefine genres: punk-grass (bluegrass and punk), blunt-funk (reggae and soul) and church, no chaser (Sunday-morning jazz organ). Cash only.
