The exposed wood beams and brick hint at the industrial past of the building that now hosts Branded, a bar inside the Iron Horse Hotel voted best decor.

Milwaukee's best bar decor, 2011: Branded


"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, bartender profiles 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.

Sometimes it's nice to have something a little more than a glowing neon beer sign and a dart board adorning the walls of your chosen watering hole.

And whether you are into a more polished and sophisticated look or something kitschy and fun, Milwaukee has plenty of bars that put as much thought into how they look as they do into how tasty your drink is. But for OnMilwaukee.com readers only once bar was branded as having Milwaukee's best decor.

Branded, located off the main lobby inside the Iron Horse Hotel, 500 W. Florida St., exudes a rugged chicness that embraces the site's industrial past. A giant pool table, exposed brick and wood, and a long bar with shelving to the ceiling gives Branded an edgy yet distinguished look.
