The Barrymore Theatre is primarily a music venue in the beautiful city of Madison, Wisconsin. We've been operating as such since about 1988.
The Barrymore opened in 1929 as the first talking pictures movie theatre in Madison. Over the years it has gone through many changes, but we seem to really have hit our stride as a premier music venue, while also bringing in comedy acts and a wide variety of other events.
There's plenty of fun to be had on a trip to the Barrymore. Amazing local restaurants and bars are located within walking distance in the Atwood/Schenk neighborhood. We're also very close to the famous Willy St. neighborhood and a short drive or bus ride from downtown Madison and the University of Wisconsin campus.
We serve beer, wine, wine coolers, mixed drinks and shots at the theatre. We currently have 12 different beers on tap. And we're not just talking about Miller Lite or Bud Lite. We have some of the best beer Wisconsin has to offer as well as some very good brews from the rest of the country and beyond. Don't be afraid to try something new!
