Hotel Madrid in Walker’s Point Debuts Bar Food Menu

Along with seasonal cocktails, the hotel bar makes its own vermouth and serves sangria on tap.

The two suites at Walker’s Point development Hotel Madrid (600 S. Sixth St., 414-488-9146) are projected to open in February, but the hotel’s restaurant, Bodegon, is up and running. Its menu includes house dry-aged steaks and  Strauss veal chops, along with “feasts” (meant to serve 4 diners) of rack of lamb, suckling pig and Iberico de Bellota tenderloin.

This Sunday – Packers Sunday – they roll out a food menu in the hotel bar (which is called Vermuteria 600) of comparatively affordable items like empanadillas, potato churros, two kinds of burgers, a house-smoked suckling pig sandwich, a charcuterie plate, and Manchego mac and cheese ($7-$14). The bar is also offering game day drink specials. Open daily at 5 p.m., but it’s opening this Sunday at 2 p.m.
