Jo-Cat's Pub

For seven years, Lucielle's Piano Bar won this category by a landslide. Lucille's closed last year, so it was exciting to name Jo-Cat's Pub as the new winner. 

The family-owned Jo-Cat's is a Brady Street staple with a down-to-earth environment featuring good music, affordable drinks and a friendly, upbeat vibe. What more do you need when rallying with your favorite females?

2. Safe House
3. Victor's

5. Hamburger Mary's

This year we also asked a variety of prominent Milwaukeeans to weigh in on their pick for specific categories. For this category, we consulted Elizabeth Kay, WMYX morning radio host. 

Elizabeth Kay's pick: The Outsider - at the new Kimpton Journeyman Hotel

I'm a sucker for rooftop bars because it makes me feel "on top of the world" so to speak. The view at this bar is incredible, especially at sunset. The cabana-style seating and gas fire pits give this indoor / outdoor bar a relaxing, resort feel. The drinks are always good and you can even play shuffleboard!
