Our new menu is constantly updating to the daily fresh produce and fine ingredients from around Wisconsin. Now we decided to pair that same great change with different live music every night we are open. Come enjoy a meal and entertainment all in one place.
Come take a seat at our huge Brunswick Bar, one of only a few left in the United States. Enjoy our crafted cocktails, an ice cold beer and our great eats from the cafe or express menus. When the weather cooperates, we can serve you on the patio.
Our restaurant and bars have traditionally open in the evening. Now we are happy to introduce our Express Location. We are serving amazing old fashioned street eats with our own Fountain Flair. Enjoy Hot-Dogs, Italian Beefs, and More all made from scratch.
Located at 122 State Street in downtown Madison, The Fountain is a family-owned, Wisconsin-themed restaurant and bar. We are committed to comfortable atmosphere and hospitality, serving some of the best Wisconsin cuisine and drinks. Our music venue features weekly events with local musicians. The 1910 oak and mahogany bar at The Fountain was rescued from its original demolition-threatened Beaver Dam location. It was transported and reassembled at its new home in Madison in 2011. The bar was built by the Brunswick Corporation and approximately only 150 survive including the one here at The Fountain.
We continually rotate our menu using the best seasonal ingredients. Please come visit and give the chef’s choice a try.
We have everything covered…3 unique spaces under 1 roof. We aim to please and each space has its very own special, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try them all no matter where you’re sitting. Take a seat on the patio or enjoy the music cafe in back.
Some new things are happening at The Fountain. It’s not just food & drinks that we introduce or share with everyone, but the new music being played by our local musicians has been a blast. Take a look or subscribe to get continual updates.
