This is an expert cocktail lounge, and Milwuakee's hidden gem. They have NO menu, and only create drinks based on your preferred liquor, color, texture, taste, or similar drink.

A very special place. What all speakeasies aim to be. No menu, perfect service, and a lot of fun!

One of a kind cocktail lounge, they will make a drink based on your taste preferences. Pricey per drink but so good! Darkest bar you will ever be in.

“Iconic Milwaukee bar. If you stay till close, you get a bumper sticker that says I closed wolskis. You can also play darts and pool here FOR FREE. Like corkboard darts. Real darts. Plus a family owns this place and they are super nice. Also there is parking!”

“This diverse, offbeat neighborhood has a DIY sensibility that runs deep. You’ll find a little bit of everything here, from funky music venues to intimate restaurants, brewpubs to tiki bars. Riverwest is an eclectic neighborhood with strong communal spirit, home to a community-run bar, a community radio station, and a thriving co-op. ”
