Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

#52 Bryant's Cocktail Lounge (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

New to our list this year, Milwaukee’s oldest cocktail lounge is a must-visit. Exotic lighting, plush velvet walls, and exceptional cocktails has made Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge a popular watering hole since the 1930s. Originally opened as a Miller Brewing “tied house,” its namesake Bryant Sharpe opened the Wisconsin spot as a beer hall in 1936 and then switched to cocktails two years later — the rest is history. There isn’t a cocktail menu here, Sharp thought cocktail menus limited the choice of the customer. Instead, bartenders discuss the possibilities, all 450 of them, with patrons.
