A popular downtown restaurant will be adding a new location on Monroe Street near the Trader Joe's sometime late this fall.
The business partners who own the Brocach Irish Pub on the Capitol Square decided to add the new location when they noticed a for-rent sign in what is currently Spirals, a vintage furniture shop on the 1800 block of Monroe Street.
"We've seen the level of activity that goes on over there," McDonald said. "We weren't really thinking about doing something new, another Brocach, but this is such a fantastic location."
McDonald and his business partners are near west Madison residents themselves and are very excited to continue to grow their brand.
"This would be our third overall location. We've got a restaurant in Madison and Milwaukee and we also run a catering business primarily out of Milwaukee," said co-owner Cliff McDonald. "So this would be our third retail location."
