Cafe Lulu
2261 S. Howell Ave.
(414) 294-LULU

Part bar, part restaurant, Bay View's Cafe Lulu is as a great a place to stop for a drink as it is for a sandwich, salad or slice of pie. Lulu spans two storefronts on the corner of Kinnickinnic Avenue and Howell Avenue -- one part cafe / diner and the other bar.

Menu: The drink menu is a typical combination of liqour, beer and wine. Find local and regional beers on tap as well as a large selection of bottles. Don't miss the great food menu as well-- better selection and better taste than your typical bar grub.

Price: This is a neighborhood joint and prices reflect it. Beers are standard $4 or $5 and cocktails run between $4 and $6.

When to go: Happy hour specials ($1 off rail drinks, tap beers and wine) run weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m.

Dress: Casual.

Don't miss: Don't miss "Two Wheel Tuesdays" with motorcycle racing on the big screen.  And every Wednesday, Lulu treats wine drinkers to "Wino Wednesdays."  Get $10 off bottles of wine after 5 p.m.

Parking: There's a small lot just south of the building, otherwise metered street parking is available.

Maureen Post Special to staff writer Maureen Post grew up in Wauwatosa. A lover of international and urban culture, Maureen received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

After living on the east side of Madison for several years, Maureen returned to Milwaukee in 2006.

After a brief stint of travel, Maureen joined as the city’s oldest intern and has been hooked ever since. Combining her three key infatuations, Milwaukee’s great music, incredible food and inspiring art (and yes, in that order), Maureen’s job just about fits her perfectly.

Residing in Bay View, Maureen vehemently believes the city can become fresh and new with a simple move across town.
