Classic Tavern Meets Modern Izakaya
on Madison’s Capitol Square

Tavernakaya a.k.a. “TK” offers a unique yet familiar experience where American tavern meets Japanese izakaya, located right on the Capitol Square in downtown Madison.

Owner and General Manager, Michael Ding shares his favorite comfort foods from his heritage and travels to Taiwan, Japan and across Asia through the Tavernakaya menu. TK offers a lively, fun and casual pub atmosphere so you can unwind with friends and enjoy good food and drinks!

Our “rustic modern” decor captures both the tavern and Japanese pub ambiance with inspirations from Asian night markets. Our menu and offerings vary depending on lunch or dinner service, which include popular asian inspired small plates and large plates, sushi, sandwiches, rice, and noodles. To complement our food, we offer an extensive drink menu consisting of local and Asian beers, wine, sake, craft cocktails and both traditional and Japanese whiskeys.
