The watering hole, drinking spot, smasher, the pubpit, kegg-ery, pass out point, drown town, suds packer, harm-drinker, and many other catchy terms for a place to ingest large quantities maybe be applied to this legendary pub.
The historic Brady St. area provides a great opportunity to experience the lower east side of Milwaukee. Restaurants, shops, lounges, taverns, specialty shops and chain stores all reside harmoniously in this neighborhood.
The Lower East Side's most popular strip maybe Brady St. Brady street is notorious for providing shops for those who travel their own path. Un Common Items is just one of those store for the hipster in the know.
It has been difficult to find a consistent place to get a "real deal" Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. NO, I won't have the Cheese-wiz, onion, and\or green pepper argument either! Just check out The Philly Way.
The Lower East of Milwaukee gets a special nod for keeping it open-minded on wine. I am a Pinot Grigio, Vodka, and Tequilla type of person, but thanks to Elli and Rock Dee I added Merlot to my mac daddy repertoire of sipping wine. If you want to speak wine go to the Waterford Wine Co and get intellectual about wine.
I recommend if you are curious or a hard core lover of suds visit the World of Beer. Milwaukee touts a mystique of being a place to drink beer. What better place to put a place called World of Beer. Its classy because the beer is served in proper glass not a plastic cup or can...message!
If you are looking for place to work hard, access a never ending variety of bars and people by foot or bike. This may be the neighborhood for you. This community rocks with artists, musicians, cops, college folk, techies, seniors and blue collar rebels.
The Eastside wins every Sunday night. Why? DJ Marcus presents some of Milwaukee's best and most eclectic DJ's; JDL, Jack Master D. Marcus, Wolf D, Doc B, Old Man Malcolm... I have been informed the Nomad has the shortest Happy Hour and the best Sunday nights in the city.
