Maykadeh is a Persian name that means Tavern. Persian Sufi poets traditionally use wine as a symbol for Divine intoxication. The wine seller is seen as the Giver of Divine Grace. Madness, or drunkenness, is merely a reference to the inner ecstasy of communion with God. It is a delightful paradox that the Sufis use worldly imagery to describe that which is beyond the world.
"Whoever had found his way to the tavern's block
Would have to be insane if on another door knock
Fate never crowned any with drunkenness, except
The one who considered this the highest luck.
Whoever finds his way into the tavern
From the bounty of the wine, temple's secrets unlock.
He who read the secrets of this wine,
Found the secrets in the dust upon which we walk." Hafiz
