We stayed a few blocks from Brady Street for our time in Milwaukee. It's a lovely neighborhood with many fun restaurants, coffeeshops, and bars. It seems to be LGBTQ+ friendly, which was a plus—many Pride flags around and displayed in most businesses—and was convenient, with...More

There are many restaurants, bars and shops, It is a fun area to roam around for a couple of hours. I did the Brady Street Food Tour and learned so much history about the area, and had a great sampling of the food.

Lots of coffee shops and yummy places to eat with interesting mix of people. Beware though it is lived in so a little dirty at times but it is still fun to visit!

Great, eclectic neighborhood with every food and drink option imaginable. Accidentally stumbled upon Brady Street Fest, which was really awesome! Local community was great, and the brunch options were fantastic. Really enjoyed The Garage, Dorsia, and Rochambo!

I expected a lot more from Brady Street. It's just a relatively-short stretch of restaurants. Most of them are dive bars and other scuzzy restaurants with people smoking outside. It's a good place for a bar crawl, and there are a few appetizing places among...More

the area is eclectic, old, DIRTY, and it generally smells like a dumpster everywhere. Its labeled as trendy, but maybe only in a weird way, think modern day hippie with artsy touch. Its uncomfortable and you leave feeling like your cloths need to be laundered...More
