Turner Hall Ballroom
Nestled within the brick edifice of its eponymous hall, the Ballroom was a popular meeting place for the city’s Teutonic community through the 1930s, regularly holding dances, competitions, and concerts. But then, a pair of fires damaged the space, prompting the Ballroom to shutter its doors for more than seven decades. Now fully restored to its former glory, the open space boasts a capacious balcony that sweeps around the rear of the room, allowing elevated views of the concerts and giving infants a brief chance to feel taller than other people for a change.
Captain Frederick Pabst contributed to Milwaukee’s status as a cultural landmark of the upper Midwest by building Pabst Theater, formally known as Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater, in 1895. According to legend, when he was informed that his theater had burned to the ground, the brewing magnate interrupted his European vacation to wire home the order to “Rebuild at once!”—and 11 months later, the stage was completed anew. Where the old theater honored German artists by having their names inscribed along the cornice of the auditorium, the new building featured an international consortium of cultural notables. The theater’s globe-spanning influences were made even more apparent with the installation of an Austrian crystal chandelier and an Italian marble staircase.
