East Town's Restaurant Row
One block west of Cathedral Square Park, the well-established Milwaukee Street entertainment district is lined with some of downtown’s most recognized and stylish restaurants. Featuring Italian and Cuban food to steakhouses and seafood establishments, it's the perfect place for lunch and dinner before a night on the town!
Milwaukee Street is also home base for downtown’s club and lounge scene, attracting a fashionable crowd that enjoys dancing while grooving to their favorite local, and sometimes national, DJs spinning their favorite jams. Located near major hotels like The Pfister and Marriott Milwaukee Downtown, it's common to find locals intermingling with visitors in this vibrant entertainment district. Refined restaurants and a trendy bar scene collide here to make Milwaukee Street a place to be seen! Plus, as of November 2018, The Hop streetcar system directly services the district as the Phase 1 northbound route travels on Milwaukee Street, making it easy to leave the car at home.
