Website

It is definitely self-serving for the Shepherd Express to list its own website, expressmilwaukee.com, as the critics’ choice, but it’s become the premier Milwaukee-focused website for tens of thousands of people in the area. Since the website received a complete redesign and upgrade two years ago, it has grown at a...

Yoga Studio

It’s hard not to be proud of yourself when you complete a yoga class at Bikram Yoga Milwaukee on the corner of Commerce Street and Humboldt Avenue on the city’s East Side. It is a challenge, to say the least: 26 yoga postures book-ended by two breathing exercises over the course of an hour and a half in a room...

Dojo

If all you’re looking for is a quick lesson in kicking some ass, the Futen Dojo isn’t the martial arts school for you. The dojo, with locations on the East Side and in Bay View, offers training in Kobudo, the ancient martial arts of Japan. Under the guidance of Kyoshi Michael Coleman, students learn ninpo, jujutsu and...

Farmer's Market

An oud player serenades passers-by one week and a trio of young cats plays ’60s jazz the next. The South Shore Farmers Market, a Saturday summer tradition in Bay View, is a social gathering for the neighborhood as well as an opportunity to buy locally grown produce, organic eggs and meat, artisanal...

Grocery--Ethnic

Like the country it’s named for, Indian Groceries is a sensory overload, starting with the scent of spices filling the air. The aisles are crowded and stacked high with curry powder and dried chili, bottled chutney, coffee, tea and bulky bags of basmati rice. A frozen-food section pushes against the produce aisle. You can...

Doughnuts

The precise definition of “doughnut” is a ring-shaped piece of baked sweet dough—yet the word, like so many others, has only expanded in scope. In Milwaukee, a doughnut doesn’t necessarily have a hole in the middle. It may, however, have a hollow center filled with sweet jelly—one of many wonderful developments...

Beer Selection

It’s not that Whole Foods’ beer selection is the largest in the city; it’s where the beer selection can be found that’s notable—on a long aisle of refrigerated shelves in a grocery store that offers an expansive variety of high-quality natural and organic food products. The store stocks a solid roster of imports, including a...

Open Mic Night

Few open-mic nights in Milwaukee have the history of Linneman’s long-running Wednesday night event, a magnet for talent from Milwaukee’s folk, rock and alt-country scenes. Many of the city’s finest songwriters proudly cite this open-mic as one of their first public performances, and the event continues to attract novice...

Cocktail Lounge

Milwaukee’s oldest cocktail lounge also features what may be the most extensive list of drinks in the city. At least 450 adult beverages—from the flaming to the simple classics—can be mixed to order. But that’s only part of Bryant’s charm, of course. Stepping into this South Side institution is like walking into a time...

Brewery Tour

So it isn’t a brewery, but we felt special mention had to be made of the fun 45-minute tour available at Great Lakes Distillery in the Menomonee River Valley. When the craft distillery began producing its award-winning Rehorst Premium Milwaukee Vodka in 2006, it was the first Wisconsin distillery to open its doors...
