Matthew "Sherm" Sherman will open Junior’s Hook at 1517 S. 2nd St. The space has been home to The Parlor, The Bomb Shelter and The Monkey Bar in recent years.
Sherman spent the last 10 years working at Champion’s Pub, 2417 N. Bartlett Ave., and has been in the industry for 15 years.
The name of the bar is a tribute to his father, a former Air Force boxer whose nickname is Junior.
"It’s going to be an homage to boxing, but not a ‘boxing bar,’" says Sherman. "More punk rock."
The exact opening date is uncertain, but most likely in two or three weeks. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee.com for a first look when the bar opens.
