Ivory Room Piano Bar Named 2012 Small Wonder Bar Of The Year!

Ivory Room Piano Bar Named 2012 Small Wonder Bar Of The Year!

Ivory Room Piano Bar named the 2012 Small Wonder Bar in the U.S. by Nightclub Bar Magazine & nightclub.com.

Inspired by a multitude of piano bars in Chicago, co-owners Jack Sosnowski and Julie Stoleson, wanted to bring a classy yet cozy feel to the Madison area. The duo hit the right key with The Ivory Room Piano Bar. The intimate 900-square-foot space is a classic piano bar featuring both local and national acts nightly.

Located right off of Capitol Square, it’s hard not to be drawn inside, as patrons can see and hear the entertainment as they pass by the window. This unique spot offers daily and happy-hour drink specials as well as a Martini of the month.

Filled with regulars who sing along to classic tunes as well as random adventurers, the Ivory Room welcomes anyone who is in the mood for a great melody.

Local Woman Creates "Must-Have" T-Shirt

Local Woman Creates "Must-Have" T-Shirt

Fitchburg resident Kelsey Sveum has this year's must-have T-shirt for Badger fans.

The twenty-something noticed a very distinct hand gesture that has caught on among Badger fans. At one of this season's home victories, she noticed students holding their hands up in a "W." 

At the Champs Sports Bowl last year versus Miami ("the U"), Barry Alvarez held his hands in the W formation after the Badgers beat Miami. Since then Bielema has been carrying on the tradition.

Kelsey is certain the dual hand "W" is catching on University-wide. She saw the student section doing it at a basketball game while the football team was there to be congratulated on earning a piece of the BigTen Championship.

Kelsey decided to take this idea to her computer screen right away.
