one-of-a-kind private event space. To be called The Liberty Room, the
event space features the historic façade of the Madison Catholic Diocese
building first established in 1938, and will serve as a gracious and
elegant gathering space for weddings, private events and important

only the highest quality local ingredients. The Liberty Room is expected
to open by August 1, 2019 and the Hilton Sales Team is already accepting
reservations at 608-260-2363.
Additional food and beverage renovations include reconfiguring Olive
Lounge into The Audrey Kitchen & Bar. Named after Audrey Munson, who
modeled for the statue on the dome atop the State Capitol building, the
new restaurant will offer a collection of classic and progressive
cocktails, alongside a menu of lighter fare, tasty shareables and
after-five entrees. Executive Chef Jeff Orr has designed a diverse menu
of comfortable favorites infusing world flavors.
