Downtown

Milwaukee's downtown district is broken into 4 major bar streets or areas: Water Street, Old World Third Street, Cathedral Square and Milwaukee Street. Of course, there are also many bars off the "beaten path" from these entertainment districts as well, and we'll do our best to feature as many of them as possible over time.



Upper 90 Sports Pub PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

a photo of Upper 90 Sports PubThe term gastropub is becoming more commonplace as a number of them continue to pop up across Milwaukee, but what does it mean when a place bills itself as “Milwaukee’s First Gastro Sports Pub?” After stepping inside the Upper 90 Sports Pub, the idea becomes clear. It’s blurring the line between sports bar and restaurant.

Housed in an old Schlitz brewery tavern that dates back to 1886, the location is one of the longest continuously-running bars in Milwaukee. The interior definitely shows this history, from the classic tin ceiling design all the way down to the wooden beer cooler. The decor is sports-related, but it’s more about vintage sports equipment and posters than framed jerseys. Along with the flat screen HDTVs, this makes for a great alternative setting to watch a game.

a picture of Old German Beer HallWant an authentic Oktoberfest experience without having to hop the pond to Germany? Look no further than the Old German Beer Hall, located on Old World Third Street. The traditional Bavarian imported brews and live polka music will have you stumbling out of the door at the end of the night wondering whether you’re just leaving a bar in Munich or if you’re still in good ol’ Wisconsin.

The first Old German Beer Hall was founded in Munich, Germany by Wilhelm V, the duke of Bavaria. Not a fan of the taste of Munich’s then-current beer offerings, the duke decided to build a brewery to create a tastier version of the beloved beverage. Over time, the Hofbräuhaus in Germany has become a destination for tourists worldwide. The Milwaukee Old German Beer Hall imitates the legendary look and feel of the original, featuring replica tables, benches and décor. To enhance the historic atmosphere, a server delivers your beer wearing a traditional beer garden-style German dress known as a dirndl.

a picture of This Is It!For those of you looking to grab a drink at the area’s local lounge or to simply get away from it all for a night, stop into Cathedral Square’s beloved, hole-in-the-wall gay bar This Is It!—that is, if you can find it. With no sign posted outside of the venue’s door, This Is It! maintains an air of mystery about not only its location, but about its secret to staying in business for more than a few decades. The establishment has a steady following of regulars, so forget about social media (although, surprisingly, they do have a website)—This Is It! attracts new customers solely by word of mouth.
