You will feel an unmistakable energy in University Heights, one of Madison’s first suburbs. It borders the university and Camp Randall football stadium, so on game days, the streets of the Regent neighborhood turn a movable red with zealous Badgers fans hopping from tailgate parties to the many bars along Regent Street, such as Lucky’s 1313 Bar & Grille, Jordan’s Big Ten Pub and SCONNIEBAR. Notable architects, like Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan and George W. Maher, designed many older Queen Anne- and prairie-style homes in the area, so history abounds here. Monroe Street is a virtual homage to small business, as many eclectic, one-of a-kind shops, salons and eateries line the street. Mickies Dairy Bar, opened in 1946, is a pillar of the neighborhood, famous for its very large breakfasts. Go early, as the line stretches out the door on weekends.
