We lived in the Milwaukee area for over 25 years but never knew about this place until we came back to visit. Stopped in after touring the Art Museum, and had a wonderful time! The five in our group all ordered something different, a couple...More

This bar is old school, dark, dim, and quiet. It has a real lounge feel. The music is great, not too overpowering, it adds to the atmosphere. They do not have menus, you tell the server or bartender what you like to drink and they...More

Fabulous bartenders who know how to make 400+ cocktails. Daily specials. Great ambience--although very low light levels take awhile to get used to. Somewhat shabby neighborhood, but well worthwhile seeking out this gen,

Milwaukee has always shown us a great time, but Bryant's is far and away one of our favorite bars in the country, alongside At Random (not far from Bryant's). Walking in feels like a step back in time. The bartenders are incredibly knowledgeable and are...More

It's dark and quiet. You are asked what tastes you like, and you are brought a drink they recommend. All 4 of us received different unique cocktails, and the 2nd drink was different again. It's not cheap, but it is much more of an experience...More

The old fashions that were on special for $5 were great. My wife's chocolate martini was terrible. Must have been a bad night, the couple next to us left about 3/4 of their drinks on the bar and left.

This place is so old timey and so much fun! No drink menus makes what you order a surprise! Just a fun place and great drinks! I love that it is in an old house and has the 1920s vibe! Totally Check it out!

I did not know this little gem existed, taking me back to the olden days of cocktail lounges. My adult children were aware of Bryant's so we decided to make a visit all together. Our waitress was superb, as was our host. Both seemed to...More
