KaĆ±a Mojito Lounge
201 W. Mitchell St.
As Milwaukee's first official mojito lounge, KaĆ±a stands out as an original. The South Side bar offers a lengthy menu of mojitos mixed every way imaginable and no matter what your palate prefers -- sweet, sour, spicy -- there is a mojito to please it, and they all come artfully crafted and refreshingly good.
The menu offers 15 standard varieties at $8 each, but every weekend there are new creations on special. You never really know what they'll come up with next.
That's not to say you can't order a different drink there -- they've got a full bar liquor stash and Guinness on tap with more beers to come -- but one look at general manager and bartender Juan Solano's freshly made Cuban cocktails and it seems downright silly to order anything else.
Menu: Mojitos are the specialty.
When to go: It's closed Monday and Tuesday, but opens the rest of the week at 7 p.m.
Dress: Come casual, unless you are planning to partake in the free salsa dancing lessons on Thursday nights from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., in which case you might want to step it up a bit.
Don't miss: The mojito en fuego, if you can handle it. This drink muddles mint and lime juice and mixes it with Patron tequila, jalapeĆ±o juice and slices of jalapeĆ±o. It's got a real bite, but is amazingly drinkable.
Parking: Street parking only.Read more...
