Built in the 1930’s in a quiet Milwaukee neighborhood. This is a one of a kind find. Easy to find but cozy and dark in side. Definitely not a place for anyone under the legal drinking age. The expert bartenders will mix you anything your...More

This bar is old school, dark, dim, and quiet. It has a real lounge feel. The music is great, not too overpowering, it adds to the atmosphere. They do not have menus, you tell the server or bartender what you like to drink and they...More

Fabulous bartenders who know how to make 400+ cocktails. Daily specials. Great ambience--although very low light levels take awhile to get used to. Somewhat shabby neighborhood, but well worthwhile seeking out this gen,

It's dark and quiet. You are asked what tastes you like, and you are brought a drink they recommend. All 4 of us received different unique cocktails, and the 2nd drink was different again. It's not cheap, but it is much more of an experience...More

The old fashions that were on special for $5 were great. My wife's chocolate martini was terrible. Must have been a bad night, the couple next to us left about 3/4 of their drinks on the bar and left.

We finally made our way to Bryant's after being on my Milwaukee to do list for a while. It was all it promises. Atmosphere was great. Drinks were great too. I went with the traditional Old Fashioned and every sip it got better with the...More
