Trinity Three Irish Pubs PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

Written by Chris Eckert

Why stop at just one Irish bar, when you can have three Irish bars in one? Impossible, you say? Bull hockey! Trinity pulls it off with class! Foy’s starts off the trio with an array of food and drink specials. One of the managers, Jesse, tells us that Foy’s is an Irish bar that’s Americanized. It offers delicious corned beef, sandwiches and marinated steak along with other popular USA dishes.

In the middle of the pack is Gallagher’s. Known for it’s large crushed stone patio with drink service outside, it’s a great area for those that smoke or just want to enjoy the nice summer weather. Inside, Gallagher’s hosts local music and Irish entertainment.

The last bar in Trinity is Duffy’s. This bar is the “most Irish” of the three with its décor and and coziness. It’s also the smallest of the three and has the corner bar feel to it. There are TVs to catch sports and entertainment offerings. The nice thing is, you can take your drink to any part of Trinity and check out what’s going on. This is definitely a great place to go if you want to have three different experiences without having to go to three separate bars to get it.

The Harp Irish Pub PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

Written by Chris Eckert

Just past Water down on Juneau a bit, you’ll find a bar huddled next to a bridge on the Milwaukee River. This is home to one of Water Street’s many Irish-themed bars, Harp. Harp has definitely nailed the Irish bar atmosphere. There’s an old, cozy feel to the place when you walk in. Dark, old wood makes up the bar and tables in the place, with a nice dinner menu and drink specials to choose from. It’s a sleepy, groggy tavern that brings a bit of Ireland to Milwaukee with its interior decoration.

The staff at Harp keep up with that Irish spirit in their service. Bartenders tell us Harp is a Guinness-and-Jameson type of establishment, but they can create whatever it is you’re wanting. If you’re not up for the dungeon-like old world feel to the interior, Harp takes great advantage of the Milwaukee River by offering a beautiful outdoor deck with covered and uncovered areas. In total, there are two large bars, with the second one winding to the outside covered area, which makes for a nice place to throw your next party.

Duke’s On Water/Scooter’s Pub PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

Written by Chris Eckert

One of the more unique places to stop is Duke’s/Scooter’s on Water and Juneau. It’s two bars in one, separated by a doorway. Duke’s décor is worth a look. If you were allowed to build a bar in your own basement, this is how awesome it would turn out. Their cream brick walls scream of Milwaukee’s rich drinking heritage, while big screens showcase all of the sports you want. Throw in a couple of surf boards, college banners, sports photos, and some pirate paraphernalia, and you’ve got what makes up Duke’s. There’s no specific “style” to the place, but it flows really well when you see it and creates an inviting atmosphere. Bartender Sara says that’s what they’re going for. “It’s a laid-back place to spend time with your friends,” says Sara.

Their main drink is “The Birthday Shot,” also known as the 7 Seas. You pick a bottle of liquor, and the first 7 bottles next to it are filled in a rocks glass, topped off with cranberry, and served with a side of water. “The main rule is ‘slam it, don’t sip it” according to Sara. It’ll mess you up, but if you don’t throw it all back at once, they’ll make you do it again, which sounds pretty painful.

Scooter’s Pub is like going from a bar decorated by college kids to one decorated by your parents. A beautiful wood bar and laid-back green walls greet you when you walk in. Old Summerfest and band posters grace the wall to give it a retro feel. Scooter’s carries pool tables, darts, Golden Tee, Big Buck Hunter and more. This is the more trendy, relaxed part of the bar. Both places offer daily drink specials and are great places to meet up with your friends.

Red Rock Saloon PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

Written by Chris Eckert

YEEEHAWWW! Welcome to Downtown Milwaukee’s first ever country/rock-inspired bar. Think of an old western saloon with a modern twist. With the polished wood décor all around the building, it definitely has a big Texas bar feel to it. The atmosphere is like a log cabin or a barn with a party going on inside.

If the barn’s a rockin’, it’s because there’s plenty of live music going on. Not only do they host local acts, they even wrangle up some national acts as well, including Adam Craig and Chasin’ Mason, to name a few. You can catch their live music every Friday night. Check their website for a list of acts or follow them on Facebook or Twitter to find out more.

Did I mention the mechanical bull? If I didn’t … mechanical bull. The only one in Milwaukee, too. If you’re a brave (or drunk) enough, buckaroo, to attempt to tame this robotic beast, then by all means, have at it. Be warned though — the cockier you are, the harder the staff will make you fall!

If you’re not feeling the call of the wild bull, then saddle up to some of their award-winning food. If there’s one thing I know about country folk, it’s that they know how to cook. Their wings, chili and barbeque are all dishes that not only have won competitions, but also the hearts and stomachs of many a cowboy and cowgirl. To wash that all down, try one of their double Jack and Cokes in mason jars. You can also check out their daily food and drink specials. Their friendly staff knows how to treat you to some southern hospitality. Red Rock Saloon is definitely worth checking out for a nice southern atmosphere.

Coyote Ugly PDF Print E-mail
Bars & Clubs - Downtown

Written by Chris Eckert

Ah, yes. The bar based on a movie based on a bar. If you haven’t seen the movie Coyote Ugly, let me give you a brief synopsis. Hot girl goes to work for a bar where you can dance on tables and pretty much do whatever the hell you want. I think there was some conflict, maybe love … who really knows? Either way, there were hot chicks and boobs. The End!

You’re greeted as you walk through the door as if you were late to a party at which you were the guest of honor. There you may find dancing on the bar Kelly, one of the waitresses. Kelly accurately describes Coyote Ugly as “a sorority house throwing a party.” With activities such as hula hoop competitions, bra collections, body shots where they tie you up, beer pong, flip cup and bags going on, right away you can tell this isn’t your average bar, which is what Coyote Ugly is going for. “We do things normal bars won’t let you do,” says Kelly. Every patron there is your friend, and the bartenders are there to make sure you have fun, not just mope around and get lost in the shuffle. Patrons are allowed to go up on tables and dance (I did not, however. Didn’t want to make the staff jealous of my awesome moves. Mickey Mouse Club represent, yo).

Coyote Ugly offers three floors (including a rooftop, which should be ready by mid-to-late June) of fun for all of your friends. Daily drink specials and happy hours will keep the party going all night. The staff here isn’t just supplying the alcohol for the party — they’re partying right along with you, and it makes for a unique experience you’ve got to check out for yourself.
