Milwaukee's best Riverwest bar, 2011: The Mad Planet


"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com 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, rapid 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, 2011. 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.

For the first time in the history of the OnMilwaukee.com Best Bars & Clubs survey, readers did not pick The Tracks as their favorite Riverwest bar.

Instead, the top prize goes to The Mad Planet, a dance club and live music venue that has enlivened Center Street for more than 20 years.

The Mad Planet welcomes indie local and national bands, hosts a wicked '80s dance party on Friday nights and features other regular events like The Get Down, a funk and soul dance party.

The Mad Planet continues to appeal to a diverse group of Milwaukeeans and, consequently, is one of the city's best places to people watch.

OnMilwaukee.com editors' pick: Stonefly Brewing Co.
