“What's Not To Love”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Third Ward is an easy choice especially on a warm day, when all the boutiques and bars have the doors and windows open (very inviting). In the Third Ward variety is king! I am personally drawn to the bustling City Market to enjoy a bite to eat and a cocktail to sip.

My family and I love the Pizzeria located at the end of Jefferson which sits right on the river and offers a great and tasty gourmet pizza menu in addition to my favorite Greek salad with tender scallops.

Most recently my husband and I have received individualized hair and spa treatments at a new salon named DART. The customer service is great! The list of services offered is quite impressive and walk ins are accepted.

All in all, there is always something to do and see in the Third Ward and part of the draw to this location is the thrill of finding something unexpected and unique. Love that it is diverse and eclectic in the City of Milwaukee.

“Fun place to drink,eat and walk around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

We headed for the Milwaukee Ale House down the Riverwalk from our room at the Hyatt. Wanted to check out their beer offereings which are great, try the Soloman Juneau beer, littly citruisy, but on a warm May day tasted good. Nice service, great view. Walked out onto Water Street and over to the Milwaukee Public Market...way cool place to poke around in. Places to eat, buy wine, gifts and cooking stuff, Brewers shirts, and candy! The interesting little store fronts are plentiful, would love to go back and walk around when we have more time.

“The Best of Milwaukee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

This is the "fun downtown area" of Milwaukee. A few blocks from Lake Michigan...on the river! Wide variety of restaurants and clubs.
