Opening in February 1998, Mad River was designed with the hope of one day becoming an unmissable watering hole on the Upper East Side. Over the years, we've built up quite a reputation for serving delicious meals, making great drinks, and never forgetting to show the game (Packers, Badgers & Liverpool FC, of course).


Mad River is the perfect intimate gathering place for an after work catch up,

pre-show cocktails, that secret rendezvous or a late night party.




We're known throughout the city for our amazing selection of great pub fare, our chefs focus on putting their own unique version to traditional favorites for lunch and dinner.


We also offer custom event catering, our team can work with you to curate the perfect meal package, or you can select from our event menu. 



We've been making great drinks for over 20 years, in that time, we've learned a thing or two and have more than a few stories to tell. 

Complimented by warm service and contemporary vibes,  our bar fuses a lively atmosphere with a relaxed environment making an everyday occasion a memorable experience. 


From birthday parties to fundraisers, to corporate events, we have the perfect place to host all of your special occasions. We can accommodate both small and large functions in our two-level bar and restaurant.


We do not charge for the use of our private spaces, however, we do require a minimum spend based on the size of the group booking. Enquire below for more info.


Please don't hesitate to reach out with a request however large or small. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, usually we get back to requests within the same business day.
