MadHappy Lounge Moving Out of Downtown

The MadHappy Lounge, one of Bend's most popular night spots, is moving.

Posted By on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 11:53 PM

Tonight, Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles are playing at the MadHappy Lounge on Brooks St. in downtown Bend. This is interesting in and of itself -- a very cool band in a cool place -- but the sad thing is that this could very well be the last show at the MadHappy's downtown location.

According to the popular dance spot's bartender/marketing manager, the MadHappy is moving into the Innovation Theatre Works space off of Reed Market Road at the south end of Bend. The MadHappy will operate more as an art collective and other details about the move aren't yet known -- including when they'll actually close down the Brooks St. spot, which was previously the home of the Bendistillery Martini Bar.

For Bend's nightlife contingent, this is a major bummer, especially considering the awesome slate of shows that have been rolling through the MadHappy as of late. Also, this has always been a reliable middle-of-the-week party spot, thanks to the constant innovation from owner Reggie Martinez, who bought the space last spring.

But knowing Martinez, you shouldn't expect the MadHappy crew to be quiet for long. We'll keep you posted on their move.
