I toured two unique venues today: City Lights Brewing Company and Venue Forty Two. Both very different venues, they have something in common and that is beer!
City Lights Brewing offers indoor seating for 100 people in this 1902 rehabbed building, ask about the history behind the bricks! They have a tented outdoor area for 200 additional seats. The brewery runs along the Milwaukee River and they have a wonderful complex and outdoor space. Add in a great band outdoors, it makes for a fun evening!
Venue Forty Two - Is located in the heart of Pabst Brewery area and also in a rehabbed warehouse. It features five different spaces: office suites, a bar area for the office suites or it could be used for a reception and then the restaurant, Venue Forty Two event space overlooking Fiserv Forum and the downtown Milwaukee skyline and then Milwaukee Brewing Company is also headquartered in the same space. A lot of glass separate the spaces, they have a living plant wall, the roof over the event space and restaurant allow plenty of natural light to come through so it always looks bright, even on a cloudy day. They have a hidden gem, which is their rooftop patio in two different areas, both with panoramic views of the immediate neighborhood and Milwaukee skyline. Sit down dinner for up to 180 in Venue 42 and the entire space is available for a buyout for groups as well.
Consider both spaces for your next event!

Many visitors find The Third Ward area quaint and a fun place to shop or eat. For all of the locals or visitors, Milwaukee Magazine just published a Guide to the Third Ward that I thought was very interesting and a great way to explore this part of the city. You can find a link to the guide here.
Yes, you read that correctly. Of course we have the historic Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory which is called 'The Domes'. However, I'm talking about the Lux Domes that will be featured at the restaurant, Cafe Benelux in The Third Ward. There are six private, heated domes installed on the rooftop of Cafe Benelux, each with seating up to eight guests at a time. Each dome can be booked for an hour and a half time slot for Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. According to Dan Herwig, director of brand and marketing for Lowlands Group, "We've seen similar rooftop experiences in London and Boston add life to those cities in their harsh winters, so we figured Milwaukee would be a great fit for something similar." Food and beverage packages would also be available as add-ons to the dining experience. What a great marketing idea! You can read more about the Lux Domes and book your reservation through this link.
