How often do you really seek out a hotel bar? The Hilton Milwaukee City Center’s Monarch Lounge (509 W. Wisconsin Ave.) just might change that. A classic cocktail menu is a plus, but the real draw is the 1920s-era, art deco surroundings.

At a time when it’s trendy to be retro, it’s refreshing to see the real thing.
