Bar Scene
There is no shortage of bars in a city that seems to revolve around the beer scene and a drinking culture. There is something for everyone, from swanky craft cocktails to countless dive bars. Here are some of the more unique standouts...
Upscale cocktails with a great view of the city on the Kimpton Journeyman rooftop.

Yes, we Milwaukeeans call it "Victim's" but it is the best place to people watch on the weekends from the comfort of large black booths under the year-round Christmas lights. It's the only place you'll find your grandpa on the dancefloor with the bachelorette party, the motorcycle gang, your suburban aunt, and the well dressed men that came from the Bucks game. Trust me and join the party already.

All the Milwaukee German character you can imagine and more. It's a cozy space where you can get tap beer, specialty cocktails, and the best hot toddy's in town. Nice outdoor beer garden in summer.

It's a cafe and bar (parents!) but mostly a large gaming and hangout space. Picture things like a giant Operation game table alongside classic game tables like billiards and foosball, plus classic and novelty board and card games. There's also snacks, loaded waffles, and bakery. All ages welcome.

We really enjoyed our weekend brunch here — the food was top notch and it was not too busy (yet) and a lot of space. Plus, there's the bonus of all those beers to go with your brunch booze. A potential for some easy-going live music as well. https://www.haciendabeerco.com/hacienda-north-ave

Milwaukeeans all have their custard preferences, and we say Kopp's is the Cadillac of custard. And they have one of the tastiest burgers in the city as well. A pro will order ahead — on busy days you will wait. There isn't really indoor seating, but there is outdoor park space or just grab takeout.

The Wisconsin butter burger is stuff of lore. Solly's is one of the originals serving up butter with their burgers since 1936. It's a small diner with counter seating and fills up fast. But if you love a greasy burger this joint is worth it. Have it with a chocolate malt.
