As one of the Milwaukee-area’s largest and most unique restaurant groups, our spacious, dynamic, and lively venues offer up a Lowland European vibe unlike anywhere else in the U.S. Eight distinct venues provide a wide variety of spaces—both indoor and outdoor—paired with world-class beverage options and a culinary program lead by three-time James Beard-nominated Chef Thomas Hauck. All of this, plus a dedicated events staff committed to delivering memorable and flawless events.

OUR VENUES

Each of our locations are designed down to the smallest detail to create experiences beyond the ordinary and offer:

  • Reclaimed spaces and materials that add warmth, character and intrinsic “gezellig”
  • Street-level and rooftop outdoor spaces with compelling experiential components: fountains, bridges, courtyards, decks
  • Multi-level venues with visual connection between levels
  • Experiential bar programs
  • Convertible envelopes
  • Funky Euro aesthetics

CULINARY

Overseen by three-time James Beard-nominated Chef Thomas Hauck, our culinary program offers:
  • From-scratch menus that utilize local Wisconsin suppliers for our dairy, breads, eggs, maple syrup, sausage, honey, coffee and more
  • Flexible event menus offering sit-down, family-style, or buffet-style dining options
  • Unique menu items with European-inspired flavors and form factors
  • A strong food ethos that says “no” to things like high fructose corn syrup, rBGH, bleached white flour, and unsustainable fishing practices

BEVERAGE

Our world-class beverage program is unlike any other in the United States and features:
  • A full, robust beverage offering reminiscent of Europe’s Grand Cafés—from coffee to cocktails and wine to booze-less options
  • One of the United States’ largest offering of Belgian biers, with many only being imported exclusively for us
