If you're going to get the girls together for a night out in Milwaukee – or bring the bachelorette out for a last hurrah – there is one spot in the city where the readers say you MUST go, and that's Lucille's Piano Bar & Grill, located at 1110 N. Old World Third St.
Lucille's has owned this category, winning handily again for the seventh consecutive year.
Why? Well, the fact that it's the only dueling piano bar in the city has something to do with it, but the fact that you can "roast" your woman of honor – or a friend out of the blue – and request your favorite songs makes the night special. Also, subtle touches, like helping you plan your gathering, housing your cake and down to the fact that the bar doesn't require a drink minimum contributes to the entire experience. Plus, you never know if your evening might feature a Seth MacFarlane cameo.
Red Rock Saloon played bridesmaid, not bride, in this year's poll, taking second place with La Cage – the OnMilwaukee editors' pick – Safe House and Victor's wrapping up the rest of the top five.
