Madam's Organ has received a lot of both
positive and controversial publicity...
Madam's Mural still under fire.
The Madam's Organ
Mural, an Adams Morgan landmark, finds herself under fire by those who
basically don't like the large boobage. Officially, it's been
found to be a non-offensive work of art, so those who would try to

still remember the little people... and we still remember
when we were a little hole-in-the-wall dive down the street before we
became a bigger hole-in-the-wall dive.
Anyway, cheers to Playboy Magazine for plugging us as one
of the 25 BEST BARS in America,

Madam's Organ is featured on E
(ouch!) and her racy "Wild On" travel series has
long enough, Brooke! ...and about that night on the third floor, sorry, I
was just an animal that night..."
Anyway, check out the "Wild on Dc"
and you'll see they make a pretty big deal out of us. Of course
there are a few other interesting things they mention about Dc too. E

travel series features cool travel spots world wide and usually
dips deep into the areas most popular and exciting attractions.
Look for it on cable and try to catch the Wild on Dc episode.
If you can't seem to find this particular rotating
episode, go to the web
better yet, check their schedule
for Wild on Dc!
Top 20 bars in the US by Stuff Magazine. Yeah, we got the stuff.

lucky. Stuff Magazine's review of America's top 20 bars saw fit to
include us in the lineup and we were tickled pink about it. We
figure we must have been really really good in a past life.
you think you probably know what kind of magazine this is, you might be
close, but no, it's not an x-rated one. Go check out their site here.
