8 Hour Happy Hour Tonight at Madrone

Madrone Art Bar's Neon Wingback Chair. Sadly not sittable.

The second hottest seat in the house. The first is the toilet (there's always a line)

A couple times when I’ve been walking around the city I see a chalkboard in front of a random bar claiming said establishment has the “Longest Happy Hour in SF”. Now like I said I’ve seen this move at multiple bars, but I’ve never thought to actually do the math on which is the longest. Tonight, however, Madrone is extending their already cheap specials to a solid 8-hour shift at the bar, so I’m pretty sure they’ve got everyone beat for at least one night.

If you’re you’re familiar with the place, then you already know they have everything from $2 Budweiser tallboys and $4 shots of Spikesville Whiskey to $9 variations on the traditional Manhattan named after Steve McQueen movies. And to compliment what will surely turn into a rowdy Wednesday night they’ll be hosting “Saloon-style piano” and Live Jazz early on in the night, followed by a lineup of a dozen DJs to make sure you’re good and hungover at work on Thursday.

Peep the flyer for more specifics.
