The Knick

The Knick, ¬†aptly named as it is part of the Knickerbocker Hotel, has a very delightful happy hour. Good cocktail, wine, and beer deals (delicious cocktails, by the way), and a decent menu to boot. Every weekday from 3-6, the Knick opens for happy hour. During the summer, they have a pleasant outdoor patio that... Continue Reading →

Tin Widow

New favorite bar alert! From the outside, this Walker's Point bar looks like it would be a dive... but step inside and you've got a speakeasy-esque cocktail joint. It specializes in gin cocktails but has spirits of all kinds.... and if you think all whiskey sours are made equal, then you are wrong. I could... Continue Reading →

DiModa Pizza

Apparently it is the age of fancy pizzas, and that means it is a fantastic time to be alive. More and more restaurants are popping up offering unique and artisan flatbreads and pizzas, or at least that is what I've noticed in Milwaukee. This includes a new place called DiModa. DiModa is located where Trocadero... Continue Reading →

Ale Asylum Riverhouse

Ale Asylum is a popular Madison-based brewery, but that of course does not stop them from staking out some prime property in Milwaukee. The Riverhouse sits, predictably, right on the river in downtown Milwaukee, and boasts beautiful picture windows and a nice patio to enjoy the scenery. Beer, of course, is their gig, but they...

Story Hill BKC

Tucked away, kind of in the middle of nowhere on the west side of Milwaukee, is a little place called Story Hill BKC. The name sounds magical, and dear reader, this place is. It's quiet, it's quaint, and it's attached to a liquor store that has a seriously impressive selection. The BKC in the name... Continue Reading →

Balzac

Yes, most people do a double-take when reading or hearing the name for the first time. And yes, some people giggle. However, Balzac is nothing to laugh at - this Brady Street restaurant and wine bar has got it all, and it shows. They were actually voted best wine bar 5 years in a row,... Continue Reading →

La Masa Empanada Bar

I so wish I had a picture to go along with this post, because La Masa (on Brady Street) is one of my favorite Milwaukee restaurants so far. It's such a gem - delicious food, always open when I need them to be, and there's never a wait to get in! It's not infrequently that... Continue Reading →

Burnhearts Bar

It's kind of upsetting to me that I don't really enjoy beer - after all, I live in a city who has a baseball team called the Brewers. Milwaukee, as we all know, was built on the backs of brewing companies... and there is an absurd amount of beer/beer pride/beer related activities here. I've been... Continue Reading →
