Check in early and stay late during OnMilwaukee's "Hotel Week" sponsored by VISIT Milwaukee. These seven days will be packed with stories about historic area hotels, reviews, history, food and drink, staycations and more. Find out what it's like to be a tourist in this town. (Chocolate on your pillow not included.)

Hotel bars have an air of excitement and romance, and are fun to visit even if you’re not staying the night. For chatty types like myself, hotel bars are often populated with people from all over the state, the country and the globe who might have a few stories they’re willing to share.

Here’s a guide to local hotel bars to keep in mind for your next date night or holiday meet-up – or just as an alternative to your usual spots. "414 let’s have one more," Milwaukee!
