  • If You are looking for Live Music and Entertainment in D.C. Please Go to Madams Organ!! Sunday thru Saturday!! Great Food!! Great Drinks!! Stacy Brooks is the Best!! Wednesday's is Open Mic upstairs!! I definitely recommend!!
  • Still my favorite bar in the city, but the music has become a lot worse. Some bartenders at the top floors now play mostly aggressive music that is just a pain in the ear, in particular in the earlier hours. It's sad.
  • I freaking love this place. From the live music to All levels being opened. The food omg is always filling and pleasing. The drinks never disappoints. It's a place that is chill and fun to be in. This spot is always my go to to start off on the Adam's Morgan strip,but please do not forget to visit Tihmeri as well,but Madame Organ is a must stop...PERIOD!!
  • Good bar and great bands but Susan the bar tender ( young girl with dreds) needs a customer service class. She cusses with the paying customers and im one of them since i have never met her. But other than that great bar and food.
  • It was my first time being there and I really enjoyed myself and ur staff was awesome!!!!!
