Founded in 2004 in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, High Noon Saloon is a live music venue that features many different styles of music, including rock, alternative, metal, indie, alt-country, pop, punk, bluegrass, folk, jam, hip hop, world music, and more. We host large national acts, smaller touring bands from around the world, and lots of local music. In addition to live music seven nights a week, High Noon Saloon also has bar games, Glass Nickel pizza by the slice, and a wide selection of liquors, craft beers, and wines.  In warmer months, we offer cocktail service on our spacious outdoor patio.

Join us for Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4-6pm, and enjoy 2-for-1 rail drinks and select tap beers!
