We've eaten at Buffalo Water, the Hop Leaf and a few other places. The area offers everything from causal burgers to higher end dining.

“Milwaukee's new Uptown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Visiting the Historic Third Ward is a must! Connected to downtown, this area offers excellent local restaurants, shopping and views of the Milwaukee River. Don't forget to visit the Milwaukee Public Market--open all year with excellent seafood from the lake and other Wisconsin specialties.

“Aveda!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

This was my third visit to the Aveda Institute of Beauty & Wellness and again it was wonderful! I have always had a wonderful student assigned to me and they have always done a great job! On this visit I received a hair cut and highlights. The students and instructors take the time to listen to each client and use these opportunitites to learn and work on their craft! It is always fun to visit the Aveda Institute! I only wish I lived closer - I would definitely be a regular if I did. The Institute of Beauty & Wellness is a great place to relax and be pampered a little! There are many different services. After an Aveda visit there are many shops and restaurants in the area to visit. Keep up the great work Aveda students and instructors!
