Legend has it that Bryant Sharp, the owner of this beloved Milwaukee institution just stopped selling beer one day and started serving cocktails sometime in the 1930's. Since then, Milwaukee locals as well as tourists who serendipitously stumble in have always enjoyed a stiff Martini or Manhattan at this cool, dark bar. It is also alleged that old man Bryant created the famous drinks, "The Banshee" and the "Pink Squirrel" back in the 1950's. In addition to the lounge below, the upstairs Velvet Lounge is a great spot for groups or to throw events.

Don't want to spoil the fun by giving up all the details in my blog for Bryants. Let me just say- GO! Just GO! Music 50's-60's, but the atmosphere, the lighting, the overall feel really sets the mood. Nice place to cuddle up to your lover and enjoy the night out. Good for groups of friends who want to go and have a nice time. Tell them your choice of flavor fruit...(ie- make me something with strawberry/banana/orange?)..they will whip it up for you! amazingly good!

Best drinks around – This is by far one of the best Cocktail bars that I have been to. The service is great and friendly. Perfect place to take an intimate partner with a relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend it to all; old couples new couples or couples that can spark at the lounge bar .

a nice place for intimacy – Bryant's is a great place to go to be with someone special - it's dark, deductive and discreetly out of the way. Highly recommended.
