In Bars & Clubs

Look at that view across Downtown and out across the lake. How can you resist?

Milwaukee's best view, 2012: Blu


"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com – brought to you by Hornitos, OR-G, Party Armor, Red Stag, Absolut, Fireball and Malibu – 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 and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

The votes are in and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best: Bars & Clubs, 2012. Find readers' results in 50 categories, including an editors' pick, in this series of articles that run daily in the Bars and Clubs section of OnMilwaukee.com.

When last year Blu, atop the The Pfister Hotel, was named bar with the best view in town, it had unseated perennial favorite Roots. This time around, you, the readers of OnMilwaukee.com have given Blu a repeat victory.

Roots – which also offers a one of a kind view of the city – came in second both this year and last.

We agree that Blu is pretty awesome. If the great martinis, comfy chairs, live jazz and free cashews aren't good enough on their own – and they are – Blu offers a panoramic view of the eastern end of Downtown and out toward Lake Michigan and the southeast.

Roughly half of you also know that the ladies' room at Blu offers a similarly amazing view to the west.

For our editors' pick this year, we selected newcomer 106seeboth, in Walker's Point – or the Fifth Ward, depending on your preference – for its views of the Milwaukee River and the Downtown skyline.

OnMilwaukee.com editors' pick: 106Seeboth

Runners-up:

2. Roots
3. Barnacle Bud's
4. Friday's Front Row Sports Grill
5. Milwaukee Ale House
6. The Harp
7. 106seeboth
tie. Water Buffalo
9. The Yard
10. Stubby's Pub & Grub
11. Bel Air Cantina
12. Taylor's
