It wasn't busy for a Saturday night and we came across this place by chance on a weekend away. Beautiful building and decor. Loved the Last Train to Fremont drink especially if you like something on the sweeter side. Sat in the high top tables...More

We went to Distil for first time during Milwaukee's Downtown Dining Week. What a find! We'll definitely be back. This is a beautiful restaurant/bar - like the vibe there. Both our food and waitress were outstanding. We both had the Classic Old-Fashioned - very good.

Good service except our "mixologist apprentice" (?) had no clue as i watched a "senior mixologist" painstakingly show him how to make our special drink. When it was finally done, the martini glass was only half full and the drink was luke warm. And that...More

The place is so seductive and the drinks are made with care. Do yourself a favor and go on a Friday evening to hear love music then be sure to order the Moscow Mule which is served in an ice cold copper drinking cup and...More
