Fun place to have a drink. We sat there and talked for hours. Everyone seemed to be doing the same. There is a pool table and live music many nights.

This friendly local hot spot in Riverwest is hits the refresher button often with new art from local and emerging talent. This artwork is typically for sale, so if your redecorating, it's a great place for design ideas. Drinks are competitively priced, dogs visit on the sidewalk, they have two pinball machines and a pool table, plus thinking games, a... More

This is a really neat, artsy, yet casual place to have a drink. Lots of interesting mixers. Coffee served all day/night. Live music, and GREAT frozen pizzas from a local pizza place.

You can't go wrong with Art Bar! They always have a great mix of seasonal and staple beers on tap. Their mixed drink list is full of super tasty martinis. I could wander around in there for hours looking at the variety of regular and special art exhibits! A must-stop!

First thing that threw me off was that there were dogs here. This is one of the few dog friendly bars I know exist. They had a great B1G1 deal on all drinks and the coffee/hot drinks come in HUGE cups! They've got pinball machines, darts, and a pool table. They've also got a wide range fof board games for...

All I have to says is 2 for 1 Tuesdays! I've had so many fun and random nights here. Get your moneys worth Tuesday nights, when drinks are 2 for 1 til midnight. Art rotates every month or so. Randomly I've come and there's celebrations, bands, a packers game, a party of some sort. Sometimes it's more dead and I'll... More

We stopped in this spot on a whim, to find Bingo going on. Guests were encouraged to play for stuffed animals, food, and drinks! Loved the décor(available for purchase). I indulged in a coffee drink( cappuccino) as did my date, so no alcohol was consumed. The place had great energy and music. Bingo host was entertaining. The bartender was fast... More

If you'd like to get away from the heavy touristy things (whatever that may be in Milwaukee) and just hide out, this is a wonderful place. Nice changing artwork, friendly people and staff, and haven't tried yet, but supposedly good food. Drinks are on the average price range. If you like pool there is a table there. Dog friendly. The...
