It had a very nice atmosphere. Surprised by how quiet it was when we got there about 7 PM, but as the night went on, more people came in. We left before the entertainment. I thought it was a dueling piano bar, but then I guess it would have been called "176 Keys." Fun place, would go back. Didn't care for the old, creepy foreign movies though.

88 Keys was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere and staff were both welcoming and offered a relaxing atmosphere to talk. The martinis were delicious and the fondue excellent. The friends that I introduced to the place have already gone back with their other friends. Plan to frequent 88 Keys again. Ladies night is also fantastic!!

From Our Editors

Every night the notes of renowned jazz, blues, and R&B performers echo through the glimmering walls of 88 Keys Piano Martini Lounge, where martinis and small plates meet beneath mood-setting blue lights in West Allis’s downtown stretch. The relaxed spot was conceived by co-owners Greg Barczak and Suzy Ball who, as West Allis Now reporter Mark Schaaf notes, “hope the city is turning a corner and want to make something more of the downtown” by attracting a younger crowd and lending the area an intimate, upscale nightlife option.

Inside the low-lit lounge, glass windows open and close to bathe guests and performers in a cooling breeze. Artwork and Wisconsin gangster memorabilia, including John Dillinger photographs and high-school report cards, beam down upon pots of fondue and gourmet pizzas. Behind the glowing bar, master mixologists blend a lengthy list of 28 specialty martinis and fill glasses with wine and beer.
