c.1880 begins work on a private dining room

c.1880, 1100 S. 1st St., has begun construction on a private dining room that will accommodate groups of four to 14 diners.

The room, which will have a rustic feel similar to the restaurant's décor, will make use of a darker color palate and a hand-crafted rock walnut table made by local craftsman Matt Connell of Bay View. Audiovisual equipment, including a projector, screen and audio, will be available for use.

Design for the room is a collaborative effort between Chef and Owner Thomas Hauck, General Manager Joshua Wolter, and Designer Kerry Shannon, of Residence Milwaukee.

The dining options for the room, which is expected to be completed by mid-May, will be based on course dining and contracted minimums.

The room can be booked by contacting Joshua Wolter at or by phone at (414) 431-9271.

In the meantime, while you're waiting to experience private dining at c.1880, you might just want to call to make reservations for tomorrow evening's wine dinner featuring MacPhail Family Wines.
