Pandl's in Bayside
8825 N. Lake Dr., (414) 352-7300
Take a drive along Lake Drive, and you'll hit Pandl's. Banquet space for up to 250 and great views to boot.
Riverfront Pizzeria Bar and Grill
509 E. Erie St., (414) 277-1800
This bright, airy space on the Milwaukee River has a party room and a comfortable back area that can be "roped off." Great pizza and pastas too. Smoke-free, as well.
777 N. Water St., (414) 431-3106
Solid food in an eclectic setting make for an interesting mix.
714 N. Milwaukee St., (414) 224-7253
Upstairs from the contemporary Japanese and Korean restaurant Sake Tumi is the Kai Buddha Lounge. It's a nice space for a bigger bash. Call for details.
The Pump House
2001 S. 1st St., (414) 744-7008
Need an eclectic spot? Try The Pump House. This two story original pump house was gutted and remodeled to serve as a bar and restaurant along the Kinnickinnic River. The upstairs mezzanine overlooks the downstairs lounge and is a perfect location for a special event or company party.
Water Street Brewery
1101 N. Water St., (414) 272-1195
The Water Street Brewery space seems to keep going and going, and once you get to the back area, it's prime for a gathering of less than 50 people.

Blue's Egg is only open until 2 p.m. and then available for completely private parties in the evening-- no room rental and plenty of menu options.
My husband and I just had our wedding ceremony & reception at Swig in the third ward. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything went. We worked with Joseph and he went above and beyond setting up the event and even on the day of the event to please our every needs. The food was amazing and I got so many compliments about the food and the venue.
Bryant's Cocktail Lounge has a second floor lounge that is a swanky place for private parties. The walls are covered in black velvet wallpaper.
My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Roots Cellar this summer. The food, as usual, for Roots was outstanding. The service was impeccable. Chef John Raymond runs a fantastic spot, the event planner was excellent. The food possibilities that are offered for an event are nearly endless. The room was beautifully decorated, with minimal input from the two of us. If you have an event for 60-70 people, you can not beat Roots. I highly recommend it.
Chez Jacques on South 1st Street. Had a party there with about 40-50 guests. They bent over backward to meet my needs, food and beverage was excellent, all the guests raved. They have a private party room and outdoor patio.
