MERCHANT

Since 2010, Merchant has been Madison's energetic industrial-chic cafe, craft cocktail bar, and late night destination specializing in no-nonsense, affordable, seasonal offerings steeped in the classics.

Merchant is an ongoing endeavor, a restaurant that is a teaching kitchen, a place for an expression of our craft, and most importantly, a convivial space to dine, drink, and toast to what is possible here in Madison, WI.

 

Here we honor classic cooking with a commitment to sourcing the finest ingredients around.  We celebrate our growing city, innovative industry, and our thriving neighborhood, with a mission to create a space for treating each other and ourselves well.
