“Unique spot with great dining & shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We loved the fact that we could get there on the River Walk. Each shop was different & unique & many, varied places to eat.

“This is where the night life is.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are visiting Milwaukee and want to know where the people are this is where you will find them. Walk down Water St. to the Public Market. From there you will find block after block of food, drink and music. If is very safe at night, even walking along the riverwalk is safe. Fun places are the Ale House along the river, Cafe Benelux has rooftop seating, across the street is Wicked Hop. What is so unique about the area is the old features. The lights, the cobblestone, the old police call box. Go to on Milwaukee.com and you will be amazed at how much there is to offer in such a small area.

“Very cool, trendy area to spend time in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Didn't have nearly enough time to fully enjoy this part of Milwaukee but I plan to come back! Very cool "vibe," lots to see and do, great shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Loved seeing the redevelopment of great, old buildings.

“Nice Area Check Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a nice little area of Milwaukee with plenty of restaurants and bars, as well as coffee houses. We visited the Public Market which is small but amazing. Stop by the Wicked Hop across the street for a great Bloody Mary! You can catch a Pedal Bar in that area as well. Never been on it but looks to be a blast!

“Great place for visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Third Ward is a great area to walk around and tour the restaurants, shops, galleries and bars. I highly suggest St. Paul Seafood, and the Wicked Hop.
