A place for exciting drinks, neighborly networks, and exceptional service – Duluth’s newest bar is the other half of the Four Forks Restaurant. We invite you to stop by for a drink or two with a friend or three. Located just around the corner from the Red Clay Theatre, Madcap’s is the perfect spot to stop in for a quick bite before or after a show. Just head downstairs to enjoy a modified bar menu, featuring cuisine from four regions of the United States. You can also sample hand-crafted cocktails and view a curated selection of artwork from a local artist. The artwork in the bar will rotate periodically, so be sure to check our our events page for any art shows in the coming months. Madcap’s will be open late as long as you want to hang out. Just give us a call if you’re curious about our hours of the day.
About the Owners
Four Forks Restaurant and Madcap’s Bar are jointly owned by Marsha Anderson Bomar, Billy Jones and Bruno Taillefer. Marsha and Billy have known each other for quite some time, having met while serving on the Duluth City Council together sine 2009. Marsha owned Chocolate Perks, downtown Duluth restaurant and community gathering spot. She wanted to get back into the restaurant world since selling that business in 2012. Billy has played around with the idea of owning a bar for awhile. Bruno is a downtown Duluth business and property owner who really believes in the City and wanted to be part of this new venture as well.
In 2017, the owner of Piatto Fresh Kitchen was ready to sell the restaurant to spend more time with his family. The wheels began turning and in October the transition become official.
When Marsha and Billy first began working together on the City Council, they recognized how different they were and worked hard to understand each other’s perspectives. Along the way, they’ve developed a great relationship and have been able to help initiate change and progress in the Duluth community, laying the groundwork for their partnership as owners of Four Forks Restaurant and Madcap’s Bar.
