For the second year in a row, Bryant's Cocktail Lounge has held off Elsa's on the Park and Hi-Hat Lounge to win the Best Martinis category.
Low-key swanky and cozy with excellent service and an endless array of signature drinks, the speakeasy has endeared itself to Milwaukee spirit-lovers in its corner spot on South 9th Street and West Lapham Boulevard. Bryant's is a place to try something new and creatively concocted, or simply order an old favorite and know it'll be made right. The latter is clearly the case for local martini drinkers.
For the last few years, this category has bounced between Bryant's, Elsa's and Hi-Hat. OnMilwaukee staff chose Elsa's, but really you can't go wrong at any of them.
