Von Triers is my favorite bar in Milwaukee because of the decor and service. All of their servers are top notch! I am always treated like part of their family when my friends and I grab drinks there.

Went to recreate my first date with my wife in 1990. We just had drinks and shared a pretzel, but will come back for a meal next time. Great ambiance!

Fantastic selection of beers in an ornate atmosphere. Leave your accordions and lederhosen at home. This boutique cocktail lounge plays jazz and European classical music, has very knowledgeable bartenders, and a pleasant wait staff. Try a variety of wurst from their simple menu. Great place for a date, a work gathering, or even for the weary traveler.
