We found out about this place from our uber driver during our stay in Milwaukee. We very much enjoyed the experience. It was a definite throw back to the days of cocktail lounges during the 70s. The wait staff could not have been better. They...More

We have been wanting to go here since we saw it on Esquire’s Best Bars in America. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is dark and relaxing. We sat at the bar and Tom was our bartender. He was great. We did as suggested on...More

Out of the way—and unimpressive from exterior—but a hidden gem once inside (and you get accustomed to low light levels). An authentic 1950s cocktail lounge, with great decor, drinks, and very knowledgeable bartenders. If you’re into cocktails this is a must see—one of the best...More

Love this old school lounge. The crowd was a mix of hipsters and older. The drinks were good. Our group had a Grasshopper, ET, Banana Banshee and Forever Amber. Delicious. We had our drinks upstairs in the velvet lounge. Black flocked wall paper, amber lights,...More

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

The martini was fantastic but the bartender was abrupt with another customer and later told me to “stop chasing dragons” when I didn’t like their version of the old fashioned which was non muddled using three ingredients and topped with an orange and cherry. We...More

We lived in the Milwaukee area for over 25 years but never knew about this place until we came back to visit. Stopped in after touring the Art Museum, and had a wonderful time! The five in our group all ordered something different, a couple...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,

Milwaukee has always shown us a great time, but Bryant's is far and away one of our favorite bars in the country, alongside At Random (not far from Bryant's). Walking in feels like a step back in time. The bartenders are incredibly knowledgeable and are...More
