We really like Kochanski's. Great place for all types of live music, from polka to country to anything in between. The dualing stages are great, as there are no real set breaks.

What a traditional Milwaukee Beer Hall is, was, and should always be. From cozy & comfortable to wicked and wild. It all can be experienced at Kochanski's. It just depends on the night!

Kochanski's Concertina Bar is a Milwaukee institution, formerly known as Art Altenburg's Concertina Bar. It would have closed if Andy Kochanski hadn't taken over. There are nights that do have Polka music, but so much variety has been added over time. It's a great place for surf music, blues, roots rock, bluegrass and wildly popular for rockabilly. One unique aspect... More

Kochanski''s (the c is silent" ) Concertina Beer Hall is a true Milwaukee original. Hidden in a neighborhood just south of Miller Park and a few minutes from downtown, Kochanski's is the rebirth of what was once Art Altenburg's Concertina Bar. The new owner, Andy, has taken this great Milwaukee gem and breathed new life into it. You can find... More
