Exuding an air of industrial chic, the Griffin Restaurant will make you MAD happy with crazy good farm-to-table food and service as well as free live entertainment every Thursday on our cabaret stage.
Located in El Dorado, Arkansas, a community with a rich history and reputation for eclectic cultural programming, MAD will contain 6 venues spread over 3 city blocks. The venues will consist of a 2-acre contemporary children’s Playscape, an 7,500 person outside amphitheater, a 2,000-seat music hall with a Broadway production capable-backstage, a 250 person cabaret/farm-to-table restaurant, an 8,000 square foot art gallery, a renovated 1920’s-era 850 seat theater with balcony and bar, along with two outside plazas. The Playscape, free to the public, is one of the largest play areas for children in the state. There is also a 14-bay Farmer’s Market adjacent to the amphitheater operated twice a month in the growing seasons.
