This eatery was near our hotel and after travel we needed a good stiff drink and supper/snacks before retiring. This was the right place. The mixologist here is excellent and we enjoyed the cocktails we ordered. Before retiring we ordered the local cheese tray along with sliced salamis that were from San Francisco. A shout out to our stellar waitress... More

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. The only downside was difficulty finding the place (their door is barely marked). I enjoyed their cocktail menu, which featured drinks I like but often have to special order. They did a magnificent job with the my sazerac. Beer and wine selection was respectable. Much of the menu is tapas. We ordered... More

Although Distl serves great food, the menu isn't extensive. It is at its best as a high end bar before or after dinner. If you are still hungry after dinner or just can't wait for dinner, stop at Distil. The drink list is the best of the city. Milwaukee is a drinking town best known for beer. Distil, however, has...

Good service except our "mixologist apprentice" (?) had no clue as i watched a "senior mixologist" painstakingly show him how to make our special drink. When it was finally done, the martini glass was only half full and the drink was luke warm. And that was 14 bucks. I like my Martinis full and icy. Food was creative and very... More

The place is so seductive and the drinks are made with care. Do yourself a favor and go on a Friday evening to hear love music then be sure to order the Moscow Mule which is served in an ice cold copper drinking cup and packs a kick! In the mood for a bite? Distil has you covered from cheese... More

It is an absolute must if you can appreciate what it takes to be a top end bar! Ended up being a 'End of Prohibition' party the fist and only time I'v been there, Will be back with Friends!

This a a place you must go to! This place has 2 mixologists on staff whom make many homemade drink recipes such as grenadine to blackberry infused vodka. They also had live music which was not overly loud but it was not soft either. And the atmosphere in there would be perfect for a night out as a couple or... More

My wife and I went here on a week night. The second week night in the last couple of months. Both times, the place was pretty empty. Very cool looking place. The food is unique small plate and full plate gastropub type food. The stuffed dates, pork belly, and scallops are all excellent. Both times we have eaten here the... More
