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.

Entering the luminescent ballroom of The George, you’ll feel like you’re stepping into a decadent soirée of yesteryear. Surrounded by 19th century architectural elements and luscious décor you’ll revel in modern finery with touches of vintage flair. Whether you’re looking to host an intimate celebration or a grand party with up to 225 guests, you and your guests will be delighted with the customs bars, crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows covered in plush velvet drapes, and curated vintage and contemporary art by Wisconsin artists.

With space for up to 20 guests, the Celebration Suite makes the perfect pre-or post-event space to give you a respite from your adoring audience. Primp and lounge on the plush seating and magnificent dressing mirrors. Enjoy a private powder room and a well-stocked refrigerator while you take a moment to yourself from the festivities. The Celebration Suite is complimentary with The George booking perfect as a bridal suite, wedding showers, and après gift openings.

Looking for a sumptuous event space sans the formal ballroom; look no further than the Madcap Lounge. Located within the National Block Building just one floor below The George is this not so hidden gem. The Madcap Lounge can accommodate up to 200 guests and features a reception area, intimate seating vignettes, handsome library, billiards room, and convivial bar area. You’ll want to don your smartest smoking jacket while traversing through the London club inspired rooms sipping champagne and bourbon.

From corporate meetings to rehearsal dinners, weddings, cocktail parties, and showers, there is the perfect space for you at The George and Madcap Lounge. The event opportunities are endless and we can’t wait to help you discuss your opinions on Voltaire and celebrate in style.
