It's the little ... er, big things that matter at Camp Bar.

Milwaukee's best bar atmosphere, 2017

"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is brought to you by Miller Brewing Company, calling Milwaukee home since 1855.

Camp Bar

Once again Camp Bar, which has locations in Shorewood, the Third Ward and Wauwatosa, has topped the charts in the Best Atmosphere category, nabbing the title for the fourth straight year.

And it's no wonder. Despite their differences, each Camp Bar location possesses an unmistakable up north lodge feel, showcasing warm wood accents, tasteful (and fun) taxidermy, cozy lounge spaces and plenty of nooks in which to cozy up, even during the coldest of winter months. Outdoor patios, including a particularly tricked out version in Wauwatosa, make Camp the perfect spot to grab a drink with friends all summer long.

OnMilwaukee editors' pick: Barnacle Bud's

Runners up:
2. The Outsider (at the Kimpton Journeyman)
3. Barnacle Bud's
4. Foundation Tiki Bar
5. Bryant's Cocktail Lounge

This year we also asked a variety of prominent Milwaukeeans to weigh in on their pick for specific categories. For this category, we consulted Ian Abston, president of Millenian LLC.

Abston's pick: Foundation Tiki Bar

Surfboard tables, punch drinks and pufferfish hanging from the ceiling, with lights shoved in their blow holes. Where else would you want to share an extra stiff punchbowl drink with that special someone?
