Milwaukee's best bar in the western suburbs, 2012: Leff's Lucky Town


"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.

The western suburbs encompass a lot of municipalities and neighborhoods, so we know this was a difficult category. But, OnMilwaukee.com readers made no bones about their favorite watering hole west of the city limits.

Leff's Lucky Town, across from Hart Park in the heart of good ol' Tosa trounced the competition garnering about twice as many votes as runner-up Cafe Hollander, just up the road apiece in Tosa Village.

Mo's Irish Pub finished just a tad behind Hollander; good for a third-place finish.

Located in a historic building that once housed a silent movie theater and a shoe store that fronted a Prohibition speakeasy, Leff's – which claims to have one of the world's biggest urinals – has become a landmark Tosa watering hole and is especially popular before and after Brewers games.

A couple years ago, owner Chris Leffler took over an old gas station next door to build a patio that allows Leff's to offer outdoor dining that – hey trainspotters! – offers a great view of passing Amtraks and freighters.
