Last summer, Clai Green â€“ along with business partners Robert Smith, Pat Smith and Elizabeth Atkinson â€“ opened The Point, a private event venue located at 906 S. Barclay St. in Walkerâ€™s Point.
After a successful six months of hosting weddings, parties and corporate events, the owners decided to develop the 5,000-square foot patio attached to the north side of The Point into an open-to-the-public sangria bar called, aptly, The Sangria Bar.
The Sangria Bar will offer 20-25 different kinds of sangria, including pitchers, half pitchers, fish bowls and more. Cocktails and craft beer will also be available and it will specialize in Latin music, including live bands on certain evenings.
"We will have great happy hours, too," says Green.
Green, who also owns Luci Boutique, says he and his partners wanted to do something different with the space, especially because of its remote-feeling location and waterfall pond.
"We had a lot of feedback from people this summer and fall saying they felt like they were in a different city â€“ a warmer, tropical climate because of the tranquility," says Green.
The Sangria Bar will be open spring, summer and fall. According to Green, a second bar will open in the future which will be connected to the north parking lot.
Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more information about the grand opening when it becomes available.
"Walkerâ€™s Point is the perfect place for this," says Green. "The neighborhood is filled with diversity and innovation."
