Milwaukee - swanky rehearsal dinner venue suggestions?

mios Mar 17, 2010 10:12 AM


I'm looking for a wedding rehearsal venue for my upcoming big event in August.
I'm from Madison, so any local insider opinion you could provide on Milwaukee restaurants would be a great help!

Here's what I'm looking for:
* Good for party of 20-25.
* Semi-fancy/upscale - currently I'm looking at hotel Metro's zen on seven, cuvee, hinterland, etc
* If the restaurant has private dinning or nice lounge place that'll be a great plus.

Thanks for your help in advance!

    I'm also from Madison, but we were looking for wedding venues and learned that coquette cafe, one of my favorites in milwaukee, does have a private room. The capacity was only 60 so it was too small for our reception, but it might be worth investigating.

      Bacchus has a nice room facing the lake but the rest of the restaurant has a bit of an old-money feel (some of your other choices seem sort of modern, though the windows make this room not as dark). It's more of a 40-50 ppl space but could be really nice.
