To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon to Zenden Lounge, located on the first floor of the InterContinental Milwaukee Hotel. Upon entering this modish cocktail lounge, the eyes are instantly drawn to the magnetic glow of the vivid lighting from the tables and bar, while taste buds are distracted by the array of alcoholic possibilities. Lively house cocktails ($6–$11) include the White Lotus, a meditative melding of Tanqueray 10, Cointreau, litchi, and egg white; the Rosemary Cosmo, with Belvedere Orange, Cointreau, cranberry, and rosemary; and the Redemption, containing Earl Grey-infused Corzo tequila, canton, fresh mint, and passion fruit. The lounge is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights for elixir-accompanied end-of-the-week celebrations.
- And he's right -- it is sexy. A step through the door greets you eyes with the soft orange glow of the swirling marble top bar, which runs the entire length of the east wall. Perfectly spaced tea light candles provide tiny dots of flickering light throughout the room and huge, cushy couches encircle small tables, creating several intimate areas for conversation. – Julie Lawrence, OnMilwaukee.com
- Sweet lounge-style bar with great music and lightup bar & tables. good atmosphere. – Brian G., Yelp
