From the decor to the drinks, the lounge is amazing. Drinks are amazing and the bartenders make them so neat; presentation is great. It’s a dark establishment but it fits the mood with always a nice crowd (& I️ was alone). It’s hard to spot...More

We went very early and sat at the bar which I think was the greatest idea. We got to see the bartender (who was so nice and funny) make all the drinks. We had about 4 drinks and they were all amazing. Some way too...More

You would never know this bar on a side street of Milwaukee's River West neighborhood was a Tiki Bar. Outstanding decor, great staff, very nice drinks. One of a kind. Worth the trip away from downtown. Check it out.
