Madrone is memorable for its arty weirdness. The comparatively small bar showcases art of all kinds, including painting, mixed-media, video, photography, sculpture, and more. That creative ethos spills over into its monthly calendar, which features events like nude model sketch parties ad open-mic Sundays. Beyond the whimsical, thought-provoking decor, the dance floor is uncommonly unpretentious. Acts range from string trios to blues to piano rock. Check out Garage O’Clock, where the tunes cover reggae, rocksteady, and surf jams; Bae Slaps, which relies on soul, funk, and dancehall; and the ever-popular Motown Mondays—the best way to kick off your week.
