From the moment you step inside Taylor’s People’s Park on Main Street in downtown Waukesha, you’ll be delightfully surprised by its eclectic look and feel. The intricate figurine art hanging on the wall behind the bar adds a unique esthetic to the cozy, dimly lit atmosphere. Beginning with a slight upper-hand, People’s Park was established by the same owners as the already successful hotspot Taylor’s, located in Milwaukee’s Cathedral Square. One of the first bars in recent years to take part in the nightlife revival effort of the downtown Waukesha area, People’s Park has been a welcomed addition to their nightlife scene. With great drinks and fantastic food, this upscale venue is a prime place to stop by for a drink or take a date.
Upon its initial opening roughly three years ago, People’s Park was greeted with open arms by Waukesha natives; however, their momentum came to an abrupt halt on February 8th, 2011 when a fire severely damaged the venue. Despite the devastating wreckage, owners Dan and Jim Taylor worked diligently for nearly a year to repair their digs. Along with the restoration of the first floor, the Taylor brothers took it a step further by adding a second floor and rooftop patio. As you ascend the stairs, you’ll find that the second floor offers a fully-stocked second bar with additional seating and tables with views of the first floor. After stopping for a drink at the first two floors, venture further upward to the rooftop patio, where there is even more table seating surrounded by fantastic views of the city. On cooler nights, modern outdoor heaters add to the ambiance while giving off just enough heat to help you last through the evening.
