There's something about purple velvet booths and a sunken lower bar that prompts a high class ladies night out. So, it's no wonder the Hi-Hat Lounge is the 2009 readers' pick for the best bar for a girl's night out in Milwaukee.

Whether it's cocktails after work or a hot Friday night on the town, you'll find groups of ladies packing into the upper level booths or flooding the long bar downstairs.

From a lengthy martini menu littered with chocolate and fruit filled delicacies to deals on wine each and every night, it seems the menu at the Hi-Hat was made just for the ladies. editor's choice on this one is the Third Ward's Cuvee. Located on the upper level of a Broadway Street retail building, Cuvee is tucked out of the way to provide quiet tranquility -- and of course quite a bit of champagne. Perfect for the girl's night out, Cuvee features dozens of champagnes, small plate appetizers and tasty desserts. editor's choice: Cuvee
