Smyth is inspired by the days gone by term for blacksmithing. We honor the blacksmith and his craft by creating cuisine that reflects the handcrafted, soulful trade of transforming raw materials into works of art. We draw seasonally from the bounty that Wisconsin and the Midwest have to offer. Smyth is an intelligent balance between the playful and the traditional. Enjoy soups, salads, appetizers and entrees as well as plates meant for sharing.

The Library is our hotel’s communal office and lounge – and an actual library, too! The Library offers communal tables to spread out and read the paper, open up your laptop, hold an informal meeting or strike up a conversation among fellow travelers at our Milwaukee boutique hotel. Feel free to grab a coffee or cocktail to enjoy while you work or lounge.

The Library also makes an exceptional location to host private events, weddings and corporate dinners for small groups, from 40 seated to 80 reception style. Please contact the Sales Department for more information.


Beneath the soaring Sixth Street Viaduct, you’ll find The Yard, our popular, pet-friendly outdoor patio dining in Milwaukee. The Yard offers an unforgettable venue for nontraditional Milwaukee corporate meetings, social gatherings or Milwaukee weddings and is available for private catering events. If you’re looking for a more intimate space, our private Pergola overlooks The Yard and is perfect for groups of up to 50. For more information about private events in The Yard, contact The Iron Horse Hotel Sales Department. The Yard is the perfect summer spot to grab a cocktail  while you sit back under the colorful overhead sails that provide the delicate balance of sun and shade.  

We hope you’ll hang out with us indoors at Smyth Restaurant, The Library or Branded.
