Went for drinks with a group of friends. Had a good selection of imported beers on tap and service was good at the bar.

Try the patio, the place is nice and the staff can make good recommendations on what to drink. Cool part of town with a great vibe!

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.

We just walked in and out after asking for food and they said they didn't have any. We neglected to look at the chandelier that came from the Pabst House. I wish I had. It was probably as tasteless as everything else on the interminable tour of the "mansion" that had us corralled and unable to use the powder room... More

This is an excellent bar for fans of German food and beer. Excellent selection, great food, and wonderful atmosphere. Not cheap, this is for those wanting an experience, not to party. Would go back for sure.

Just seeing the inside of this place is like stepping back in time. The building itself is amazing and offers all that old world charm. The staff is helpful and the beer is like going to old Germany!! We had a great time with great food and music!!

In a great location. Been here twice, most recently this past weekend. Service was great both visits. Great place to have a drink in a relaxing, dim lit atmosphere surrounded by old world charm.

This is one of my go-to venues when I am in the Milwaukee area. The beer selection is superb. Constantly rotating with the season, new releases and complimentary snacks. It cannot be beat! In talking to the service staff, food service is about to start back up with appetizers. I can’t wait to get back and see what they come... More
