Located in the heart of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, Palms Bistro & Bar has integrated modern nuances among the distinctive Cream City brick walls to provide a new, yet comfortable and familiar feel. With such notable features as beautiful sky lighting, antique finish fire places and unique local artwork, Palms has a stylish yet preserved look that, on the inside, only offers a glimmer of what the building was initially designed for. Originally in 1895, architect Carl Itzel designed the Queen Anne style building to house the Hambach family on the second floor while leaving the first floor to be rented as retail space. Most recently before Palms inception in the fall of 2002, the first floor belonged to The Broadway Bar & Grill, a popular neighborhood hang-out. Today, the space has changed dramatically and the entire building is now used exclusively for restaurant patronage. Our second floor is available for special functions both private and public, while our first floor is always open to the general public. At Palms, it is our goal to provide great food and drinks in an upscale, yet comfortable and casual setting.
Located in the heart of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, Palms Bistro & Bar boasts renowned cream city brick walls, unique artwork, antique fireplaces and beautiful sky lighting. In addition to our charming atmosphere, we strive to create an ambiance that is incomparable. A full bar, optional dance floor and a wide array of music make our second level venue flexible for almost any occasion. Whether your function calls for special set up, or simply elegant flowers to add that special touch, we thrive on making every event one of a kind. From business dinners to wedding rehearsals, cocktail mixers to presentational meetings (both intimate and grand), our event coordinator and staff will work hard to ensure that your next event is truly enjoyable.
With a variety of arrangement options, we are able to accommodate 75 people on our second floor venue for a sit-down style event. If you are looking for a more casual style gathering such as a mixer with appetizers and bar service only, the space provided allows approximately 175 people. For events from 20 to 175, our event coordinator will assist you in planning an amazing event.
