We went here because we saw they had karaoke on Wednesdays. Well we got there and there was none. BUT Jordan and Andrew I believe his name was let us rock out with the microphone anyways. Granted it wasn't on, but it was still a good time. Nice clean and neat place.

They offer out door seating as well as inside. Old city décor. Neat to see old street lights and pictures. Fun place to go for drinks. No trashy people just good clean fun.

Love their Raspberry Lemon drop Martini. Great for parties. Love the outside set up. And they're chicken pizza is divine.

they could use some guest DJ's and play more hip hop music, but overall a really great bar. They make a great cocktail, the bar food is pretty good and the outside patio bar is awesome. In the winter, the heated outdoor shelters are great. They make you feel welcomed and that they want you to stick around. Great southside... More

This used to be a great bar with a great atmosphere, delicious martinis, microbrews, and a very nice outdoor patio. However, since the new ownership took over, the experience at City Lounge has significantly declined. If you like your martini glass only filled 2/3, this is the place for you. If you like waiting almost an hour for your food,... More

The City Lounge has been under new management for a bit over a year, and has become a great place in the neighborhood to stop by for so many reasons. They have a huge selection of unique beers and a beer club to keep track of your tastings. They have something special going on everyday of the week, from Taco... More

City Lounge is NOT a restaurant, but you can get great pub type food here, to eat while you try some of the many interesting beers they offer. Tuesdays they serve great tacos for $1 each, and addt'l ingredients are just 25 cents. They have a team trivia game that starts at 7:30 and is lots of fun. We were... More

OK, so we stopped here going north exploring the shore of the Lake. This place made our "stop here" list because they advertise a good beer selection & growler refills. We like to explore new places and try new things, so let's stop for lunch & beers (fill our growler), and continue on the road to Port Washington & Sheboygan.... More

We didn't have wheels but hotel shuttle would drive us within 3 miles of the hotel. Has been found this because it had a lot of microbrews on tap. We both order the white pizza with different toppings and they were fantastic. Though it was a club because we were there on a weeknight and semi early it wasn't too... More

Cool decorating inside and a lot of space for any get togethers or reunions. Huge outside patio area. One of the first bars to ban smoking indoors (when it was still legal) so they are ahead of the curve in some sorts. Drink prices are typical, being in Cudahy, prices are higher than anyplace on the miracle mile (Packard Ave.).... More

With reconstructed, and refurbished antique décor mixed with new age tech, City Lounge has something everybody. Amazing drinks from famous Martinis and Wine on tap, to some of the finest craft beers on the market line our selection, topped with nominated best bar food in Milwaukee. Inside you take a stroll through the streets of Old Milwaukee under painted star and sky murals, accented by real working street lights, signs and more. Outside you can relax in our huge beer garden while you sit by our wood burning fireplace, watch our dual 80" outdoor tvs, and sip top notch drinks from our full service outdoor bar.
