Outdoor drinking guide – onmilwaukee gas vs electric dryer


These days, outdoor patios come a dime a dozen. That’s not a bad thing, but it would be futile to try to list them all here in a comprehensive guide. Instead, we’re picking a few of our favorites that will help you take the party to the patio this summer.

This place is great for so many reasons, perhaps No. 1 being that so few know where it is. That’s because it’s nestled behind Skipper Bud’s on the north side of Bay View, and you have to drive through a few parking lots to find it. Once you do, you’ll see a totally unique view of the city, with converging rivers and a backdrop that feels more Key West than Milwaukee. The bar is far from fancy – it’s good for greasy bar food, Coronas and margaritas. In terms of vibe, it’s filled with people who’ve docked their boats, as well as landlubbers who just came to adjust their latitude.

With spacious rooms and bars designed for large parties as well as more intimate settings, the newly remodeled Bierhaus is sure to have a spot perfectly suited for your drinking desires. Let’s not forget Heidelberg Park just outside the historical building, which serves as a lovely spot to sip one of the numerous taps available behind the bar.

What’s not to love about a beer garden on the site of the historic Pabst brewery? Get your PBR on tap, take in the old world charm and hang around for one of the regular weekend music acts. You can even take your picture with Captain Pabst himself (or a statue of him, anyway).

The outdoor space at the new Boone & Crockett, which will be executed based on plans laid out by Vavra Design, will sport a fantastic view of the Hoan bridge (and, incidentally, any fireworks being set off at the lake), will also house Chef Mitch Ciohon’s Taco Moto truck, which will enjoy new digs, complete with a four-seasons enclosure that will allow customers to eat tacos even on the coldest winter days without freezing.

The word "camino" translates out to path – and you should follow this Camino into its fenced-in backyard beer garden space. Opened in 2016, it’s the perfect place to soak in some sun while soaking up Camino’s wide selection of tasty American craft brews.

As soon as it opened, Camp Bar became the coolest place for a cocktail in East Tosa. Now, there’s a patio out back and a deck above, as well, making it the coolest place in East Tosa for an outdoor cocktail, tied perhaps with its neighbor, Red Dot.

Major renovations transformed one of the city’s best Middle Eastern restaurants – and one of the Milwaukee’s best buffets – into a destination hot-spot for the late-night crowd, too, thanks to a second floor deck that juts out over the sidewalk to offer views along Brady Street.

The East Side’s newest brewery has a sunny patio located just to the west of the taproom and adjacent to the brewery’s substantial fenced-in parking lot, which will serve as the site for a brewery pig roast, concerts and various events celebrating future beer releases.

A lounge area to the left of the inside bar comes complete with a gas fireplace and humidor containing a collection of cigars which can be purchased and smoked out on the Explorium patio. The patio space also features an outdoor bar and fire-pit along with a dining area.

One of the city’s top seafood restaurants boasts a fine view of Lake Michigan, literally right outside the windows. But it also has an outdoor patio with a range of seating offering views of the lake, of Milwaukee Art Museum and of the changing Downtown skyline.

With a name like "The Fountain," you can bet this outdoor drinking spot has them in spades. There’s even has one in its indoor dining area, but the patio is where it’s at. Enjoy one of the signature margaritas (heck, grab a pitcher) and a taste of Mexico right here in Milwaukee.
