Located blocks from Camp Randall in the heart of Monroe Street, Brocach on Monroe is a purveyor of outstanding food, fabulous craft beer and cocktails and the best pint of Guinness west of Galway.

Welcome to Brocach on Monroe!  We appreciate your business, and we are delighted to host you.  Brocach, Gaelic for “badger den,” is a Wisconsin business started in September 2004 with our downtown Madison location and we are excited to be here on Monroe Street.  The great people of Wisconsin have supported us since we started our business, and we are eternally thankful.  The local community has been helpful and supportive of our Monroe Street project, and we would like to thank you for welcoming us. 

Our goal on Monroe Street with the food and drink is to stay true to our Irish Pub roots while incorporating more local options as well.  If you have visited us at other locations before you may see some familiar things ~ you will see some new options as well.  Our intent with the experience has not changed ~ to make you feel comfortable, warm and welcome.  We hope that you’re greeted with smiles and you leave with one ~ and we hope to see you again soon.
