The George and Madcap Lounge

Historically rooted and bold in aesthetic

The George and Madcap Lounge are two unique and distinct event spaces located in the National Block Building in the heart of Walker’s Point. The sophisticated space of The George, an elegant ballroom with soaring windows and ceilings, 19th century architectural elements and modern finery. We invite you to take a tour – you will find there is nothing ordinary about The George. Adornments include plush velvet drapes, crystal chandeliers and a curated art collection featuring Wisconsin artists. The space accommodates up to 175 seated guests. Need to get ready for your event? Plush and refined, with cushy seating and magnificent dressing mirrors, the Celebration Suite offers the perfect place. A powder room and well-stocked refrigerator round out the amenities in this very special space, which accommodates 20 guests. The Celebration Suite is complimentary with The George booking and is also available for small gatherings pre- and post-event – imagine wardrobe fittings, showers and gift openings. Drawing inspiration from a London club, the Madcap Lounge is just one floor removed from The George. Thoughtfully designed to offer a thoroughly unique and intimate experience, the space features a reception area and intimate seating vignettes. Invite your guests to sip bourbon in the library, spar over a game of billiards or sample craft cocktails at the bar. Like The George, the lounge features works by vintage and contemporary Wisconsin artists.

The Madcap Lounge may be reserved with The George or on its own and can accommodate parties of up to 175. Space within the lounge may be partitioned to create the desired atmosphere. It’s a perfect setting for meetings, pre- and post-event cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners and other special celebrations.
