High Noon Saloon was founded in 2004 by Cathy Dethmers, former owner/manager (1994-2001) of Madison’s revered O’Cayz Corral. On January 1, 2001, O’Cayz was destroyed in a fire that started in a neighboring bar, thus ending its twenty-year reign as Madison’s most infamous and beloved rock club. Sometimes called “the CBGB’s of the Midwest”, O’Cayz became a live music venue in 1980, and hosted a veritable who’s who of burgeoning rock, punk, and grunge bands.

A few of the greats who graced the O’Cayz stage over the years include The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Nirvana, Firehose, Killdozer, Soundgarden, D.R.I., Queens of the Stone Age, Nashville Pussy, Fu Manchu, At The Drive-In, The White Stripes, and Elliot Smith. Immediately after the fire, Cathy began an arduous search for a new space. After three years and many obstacles overcome, Cathy found a new home for the club in the old Buy and Sell Shop building at 701 E. Washington Avenue. In May of 2004, High Noon Saloon opened its doors, finally bringing about the rebirth of the spirit of O’Cayz Corral, and adding a much-needed piece to the puzzle of the Madison music scene.
Now firmly on its feet after 7 years in business, High Noon Saloon has become well-known not only as a premier live music venue, but as a comfortable and welcoming space for fundraisers, community events, music festivals, kids’ shows, craft fairs, wedding receptions, and private parties. Since its inception, the venue has won several annual awards for “Best Live Music Venue” via various media organizations in Madison.
