Grab a locally brewed pint and relax out on the patio of the Ale Asylum Riverhouse! Located directly on the waterfront, this updated tavern provides fantastic views of the Milwaukee riverfront. Sit outside on the patio on a warm summer night (or ask for a seat inside near the windows if its chillier) and take advantage of the spectacular river views. Before heading over to an event at the Bradley Center, head to Ale Asylum Riverhouse and hang out on the patio during happy hour Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m. Be sure not to miss their Crab Rangoon Nachos.
A corner bar where the peanuts and beer flow liberally. Order the Milwaukee Burger, which won the Travel Channel’s Food Wars contest against Sobelman’s in 2010. Make it a meal with a side of “frickles” and cheddar cheese curds.
