The University Club of Milwaukee prides itself on its extensive wine cellar and specialty cocktail offerings. Members and guests can socialize and enjoy a beverage while dining at 1898 or the Sixth Floor. For a more informal experience, the 1898 bar features beautiful décor, a lively atmosphere and a television for enjoying sports games.
The Club’s spirits programs is focused on “turn of the century” classic cocktails with a modern twist. The cocktail list changes seasonally to reflect fresh ingredients and the newest spirits available. Some member-favorite cocktails include the “Prohibition Manhattan” using a Buillet Frontier Bourbon 10yr, sweet vermouth, orange bitters and Amarena cherry juice, and the “Milwaukee Mule,” which uses Central Standard Vodka, bitters and ginger beer with a fresh squeeze of lime.
The University Club’s wine program is focused on giving members access to wines that are not readily available in the market and at a price that they cannot receive anywhere else. We strive for a balance between new and old world, and work to ensure the wine list and reserve list are conversation pieces and blend with Chef Matt’s menu. Our beautiful wine cellar on the second floor is stocked with wines from all over the world and we continue to grow our offerings. Private wine tastings are available.
