Description [edit]
Bryant's is Milwaukee's oldest cocktail lounge, open since 1938. The light is low, the walls are velvet, the drinks are strong and the music is classic.

The two-story lounge features over 450 specialty cocktails, including classic cocktails, tiki-inspired hurricane drinks, ice cream cocktails and pre-prohibition cocktails. There is no drink menu at Bryant's. Instead, customers order by style, flavor or even color.
