Local Culture

Martin Hintz & Pam Percy, cultural aficionados

Milwaukee is so much more than beer and brats — especially when it comes to culture. The city offers oodles of drama, art, music and dance within a short gallop from The Iron Horse Hotel. Follow Milwaukee stunning Riverwalk to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater (108 E. Wells St.) for classics and cutting-edge presentations alike. Plus, there is a grand lobby bar that’s worth a visit. Walk on art’s wild side in the dowager Buffalo Building (207 E. Buffalo St.), where the palette of painters there can suggest nearby sizzling night spots for après-art, such as the on-the-down-low speakeasy Bugsy’s Back Alley Saloon. And yes, there is a glorious Stradivarius at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (929 N. Water St.), where classical music is alive and well in Downtown Milwaukee.
