It’s officially 2022. But the new year has ushered in not only champagne toasts and resolutions, but also a brand new wave of COVID cases.

The wave of cases has put even more stress on the bar and restaurant industry, which is already grappling with labor shortages, supply chain issues and increased food costs.

As a result, we’re also seeing a fair number of (hopefully) temporary bar and restaurant closures as venues continue to work to keep both customers and their (increasingly small) staffs safe as the virus continues to spread.

In an effort to keep you apprised of these closings, we’ve created a list of current closures impacting the city of Milwaukee.

Please note: While we are working hard to keep this guide up to date, things continue to change quickly. So please take the time to call ahead before you head out. Also please note and follow any masking regulations and safety precautions set forward by venues which remain open.

Know of a spot that's closed that we've missed? Let us know!

As always, stay safe, be kind and let’s continue to take care of one another.
