This place takes you back to Milwaukee's past. It is a fun place to see live shows. A wonderful piece of history.
the seats were uncomfortable, and the bathrooms inconvenient and small. It's showing signs of age, and should be better maintained for as lovely as it could be.

Lot of history at the Pabst; seeing a show like Martin Short in a venue with a aura of when entertainers came out and put on a show, it doesn't get any better than... More
