Modern, relaxed Japanese gastropub on the Capitol square

Tavernakaya offers a unique yet familiar experience where American tavern meets Japanese izakaya (informal Japanese gastropub), located right on the Capitol Square in downtown Madison.

Experience the lively, fun, and casual pub atmosphere while you unwind with friends and enjoy good food and drinks!

Their “rustic modern” decor captures both the tavern and Japanese pub ambiance with inspirations from Asian night markets. The menu and dishes vary depending on lunch or dinner service, which include popular Asian-inspired small plates and large plates, sushi, sandwiches, rice, and noodles.

To complement their food, they offer an extensive drink menu consisting of local and Asian beers, wine, sake, craft cocktails, and both traditional and Japanese whiskeys.
