The best of the daytime? Drinking at Barnacle Bud's!

Milwaukee's best bar for day drinking, 2014


"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com – brought to you by Absolut, Avion, Fireball, Pama, Red Stag and 2 Gingers – is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

Believe it not, for as popular as day drinking is in Milwaukee, this category has not been a part of the OnMilwaukee.com Best of Bars voting since The Nomad won in 2009.

We brought it back, and you responded in force.

Barnacle Bud's won the category for Best Day Drinking for obvious reasons. Located at 1955 S. Hilbert St., there are few places in the city that, on a warm, summer, weekend afternoon, beat sitting out on the edge of the river, drinking a beer and listening to the pluckings of Jimmi T.

Many say that Barnacle Bud's patio "feels like Florida" and, whether or not that is true, the seclusion, proximity to water and overall good vibe definitely give it an "on vacation" feel.

The OnMilwaukee.com editorial staff felt the readers got it right, choosing to imbibe in the daylight hours at Barnacle Bud's, as well.

OnMilwaukee.com editors' pick: Barnacle Bud's

Runners-up:

2. Horny Goat
3. Nomad World Pub
4. The Wicked Hop
5. Leff's Lucky Town
