  • John Hawks Pub
    In the 14th century, John Hawk was becoming an English maritime legend. Because he was one of the greatest soldiers of fortune, Rome, Pisa, Milan, and Florence all sought his services. In 1972, he became the slice of English history that set the tone for John Hawks Pub. Appropriately, the venue overlooks the waterfront, with its dining patio jutting out several feet over the river. There, guests tuck into a newly revamped menu of English-style pub grub and stateside favorites. The menu includes Ward’s prime-rib sandwich, an import from new owner Brian Ward, whose prime rib won acclaim from the Travel Channel’s Big Beef Paradise. Dangling wrought-iron chandeliers surround a massive stone hearth, enclosed in walls paneled with wood stained so darkly it almost appears black. Above, a circular stained-glass ceiling displays English heraldry and scenes from John Hawk’s life, depicting him captaining a storm-tossed ship or beating Poseidon in the Sea-Doo race that won him the ability to drink ocean water.

  • Catch 22 - Downtown
    They've got 22 televisions. 22 barstools. The Catch 22 owners' penchant for the number 22 nearly rivals their enthusiasm for all things sports. Nearly. Despite its posh decor—exposed brick walls, loft-style beams, and gleaming wood floors—the downtown space is a sports bar through and through. There’s “not a bad seat in the house,” even the men’s bathroom has a TV, and even that TV has a TV. Revelers with tickets to a game can often grab a free shuttle to a local stadium or arena. Those who stay to watch the match munch a new menu of traditional bar fare with a modern twist, such as hand-cut sweet-potato fries with curry and basil dip, or a burger slider topped with gorgonzola, creole sauce, and caramelized onions. At the full bar that stocks a dozen on-tap brews, 25+ bottled beers, premium liquors, and memory-scrambling “bombs”, patrons wash down savory dinners or toast half-court double plays.

  • The Irish Pub
    About 200 feet from the storied Milwaukee River, The Irish Pub's founding family emulates the Emerald Isle with an oak-topped bar and Irish paraphernalia. Brews served in 20-oz English pints such as Stella Artois and Guinness join cocktail fixings and wines behind the wood-inlay bar, where a chalkboard menu announces nightly specials and which waiters get detention. During the winter season, customers may also enjoy spiked hot caramel apple cider. The pub's kitchen whips up wings, half-pound burgers, salads, soups, plates of fish 'n' chips, and other quintessential comfort food, as well as corned beef sandwiches and curried-chicken-salad wraps. Flat-screen TVs dot the dining room's exposed brick walls, where they broadcast sports games and other major events.
