There are no bad seats in my opinion of this venue. So close to everything. Stayed in the Intercontinental and it was very convenient.

We went to a concert recently at the Pabst and it was fabulous! The concert and the venue. It is an old historic theater that has been reconditioned, very beautiful and ornate, charming. The folks there were all friendly, and the concessions were very reasonably priced compared to many venues. Would definitely return, and would like to see a concert... More

Nothing to say except great things about this venue. I come all the way from Colorado because this venue is so... More

So beautiful you should walk in just to check out the place. Grand and worth a stop. Centrally located in Downtown Milwaukee. Great for architecture buffs.

We went to see a comedian at the Pabst. We were on the floor and pretty far back. I was very happy with the two gigantic screens which made you feel like you were in the 5th row, and after 15 minutes I did not even think of where our seats were! Really not a bad seat in the house!

We're from Chicago and have decided that we will skip the Chicago theaters and just drive up to Milwaukee for concerts from now on. Both the Pabst and Riverside are some of the best venues I've ever been in for concerts. These make the Chicago theaters look (and sound) like dumps.
