I have been to the Rave/Eagles Club too many times to count. The last show I attended was a sold out Mac Miller show in the Eagles Ballroom. Mac himself put on a hell of a show, and I had a great time myself. I was up in the balcony, which allowed me a great view of the stage, however, pretty much wherever you stand in the ballroom you can see the stage. It was in late May, so the room became very hot and humid. Although, I was jumping around a lot so that may have been the reason for why I was so sweaty. The new ladies bathroom is wonderful. It is very nice, everything works correctly, the doors do not stick when you try to open them, and the sinks run well. When my friends and I arrived, there was a long line to get past security, however, they check you rather quickly so it moves pretty fast. It is quite simple getting up to the ballroom, following the large staircase up to the beautiful room with a large painted ceiling and wonderfully detailed trim. The room was already packed with people when we arrived. Going up one more set of stairs, we arrived in the balcony. Security checked our passes, and we were lucky to get a box pretty close to the center. When the show eventually started, Mac Miller walked out and the crowd went crazy. His performance was amazing. At one point, my friend and I got up to get a drink from the bar. The prices there are a little high, but I guess they are like that everywhere. However, the water could have been a little cheaper. I understand the Red Bull being priced high but water and soda should be a little cheaper so that people have money to buy merch and such. We took our soda up to the penthouse, which has a spectacular view over Milwaukee, with three plasma screens above the bar, so that we did not miss any part of the show. When the show was over, it took a very long time to get down to the lobby and out the door. However, I guess this is a problem at pretty much every concert venue. I was recently at Marcus Amp. for Kid Cudi and Kanye West and it took my friends and I about 30 minutes to get back to the Summerfest grounds. The only cons that I really have are: the location is not the best, but if you stay away from the West side of the building where the not so friendly neighbors live, you should be just fine. Also, everything is pretty pricey, so bring enough money to buy merch and drinks. Overall, I had a pretty good experience at the Rave. I go all the time, and I almost always have a great time there.
I have been attending concerts at The Rave for years now, and none have failed to impress me. The Rave consistently and continuously books great acts, from metal bands to hip-hop artists. The sound is always on point; there has yet to be a show that I've witnessed a malfunction of any kind. Ticket prices are never too high. The VIP Balconies, which are not unreasonably priced, offer a great view of the show without having to push and shove amongst the thousands of people on the floor. General admission is all standing, so come early for the best chances of getting your choice of standing. I've noticed many critics of the "FREE TICKET" vouchers. Personally, I use these vouchers almost every show I attend. The first time I used one, I did feel misled. I went into The Rave thinking I was getting into the concert for free, but that's not what happened. Instead, these vouchers got me a discounted ticket, and two little tickets which are redeemable for free drinks at the bar. Still a great deal worth taking advantage of. One area of disappointment is the prices of drinks. I know I'm not alone when I say that $7 for a drink is a bit pricey. Overall, I have always had pleasant experiences when I attend The Rave, and I plan on continuing to attend regularly.
I went to Lo Cash Live on Friday evening after hearing some good things about the food, music and owner. This BBQ, Beer and Bands venue exceeded my expectations! The interior is warm, southern and comfy. They also have a large outdoor patio, complete with a parking lot. I was able to try the bbq beef brisket and fried okra. The beef brisket was among the best briskets I ever ate. It was tender, great balanced sauce, delicious! If you like fried okra, you will love it at Lo Cash Live. The staff was very attentive, friendly and unpretentious. Its tough to find places that have as good of a staff. This place also has country/bluegrass bands playing music on stage every night. It was a fun, lively ambiance and it seems like everyone in the place was really enjoying themselves. I was very impressed with this place SO MUCH, that I returned the next night for their NYE celebration. Couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate the new year than listen to great music, eat bbq, and all you can drink for $20! I cant wait to come back in the summer time!

We went to crisp for the first time last night and had a great time. It was very trendy and great food. The drinks lacked a bit of alcohol but overall was a good time. The only reason I reduced a star was the service. The staff looked very confused and everything was a process to get for us. I had ordered a pineapple and Malibu and after searching the restraunt for pineapple juice 20 mins later I go my drink. I went back and ordered another and the girl said they didn't have pineapple juice. I told her I just had one so she went to ask other people who worked there. She came back and said I asked and nobody knows and they're all real busy so can you just get another drink. So all in all if crisp got new service people it would be am amzing place!
By far my favorite place to go in the Milwaukee area. The owners know how to make patrons feel welcome, and the bartenders you will feel as if you have known them your whole life. It is very difficult to find cool, intelligent, down to earth people in the Milwuakee bar scene, which is dominated by one pretentious place after another, but at Obrady's that certainly isn't the case. I highly recommend one of Kealan's (bartender) burgers, they are extraordinary. Great everday specials on beer that never change, and the ambiance will remind you of your best buddy's basement. Highly recommended.
I've been to many, many, many bars in my time and I have to admit that Jo Cat's is THE BAR where I've had the most fun with my clothes on. Great service, great atmosphere, great music, laid crowd, I mean lade back crowd, great drinks and on certain nights you might be lucky enough to meet the owner. She is quite a LOOKER. HUBA HUBA Baby. You feel like you are there to enjoy yourself and have some great fun......St. Peter
I've been there twice for family and birthday parties and the layout is outstanding for privacy with a nice social mix. Music was top rate, with volume levels perfect for conversations yet loud enough to enjoy even with a full crowd. The most incredible staff:) they take customer service very serious we did come first... Highly recommended for most any event!!!
Beautiful stained glass, radiators, and "real" wood. Charming bar!! Great food, friendly people in the heart of Stallis! Try the pizza - - what a bargain - you won't be disappointed - great burgers. Had a party there with ages ranging from 21 to 85 - everyone had a wonderful time!! Can't wait to return.
This place has a PRIME location with a great outdoor area! Their food is pretty decent and the drinks are cold. I gave this place a 3/5 because the staff is not the best. They are slow to get your food to you and they have messed up my order more than once. I will probably be back but it's not my favorite spot on Water St.
