This Restaurant In Wisconsin Is Located In The Most Unforgettable Setting
Is there anything better than handcrafted pizza made with the authentic Wisconsin cheese? Throw in one of the best views of downtown Milwaukee and you’ve arrived at the Outsider. This trendy rooftop bar is unforgettable for both the atmosphere and the menu. Whether you’re looking for a trendy hang out spot or a romantic setting for your next date night, you won’t want to pass up an evening at the Outsider.
Rising above the heart of Milwaukee’s historic Third Ward at nine stories high sits one of the most unforgettable dining scenes in town. The Outsider is a favorite destination among Milwaukee residents and visitors alike, mostly because it offers the best views of the city all year round. The luxurious dining space is located directly above the relatively new Kimpton Journeyman Hotel.
In the summer, you’ll find the garden-like outdoor patio alive with giant board games and the buzz of specialty made pizzas and cocktails. And when the weather turns frigid, retractable glass walls keep the warm air in without taking away the iconic views. You’ll also find fire pits and blankets, creating one of the coziest lounging experiences in town.
Open from 4 in the afternoon until 1 in the morning, the Outsider is the perfect place to watch the afternoon slip into evening. Aside from the view, one of the most unique features of the restaurant is the gaming selection. Diners can choose from shuffle board, bag toss, and even a giant Connect Four.
Perhaps most importantly, the food is equally enticing as the views. Delivered from the downstairs joint Tre Rivali, the pizzas are authentic and delicious. One of the most popular orders is the Foraged Mushroom Pizza, made with goat cheese, green garlic pesto and fresh lemon (photographed above).
The Outsider also offers a selection of smaller bites, such as the house made spiced beef jerky, bacon wrapped dates, and Italian sausage and pepper sliders served on a pretzel bun (photographed above). These playful and unique snacks are the perfect accompaniment to the restaurant’s elegant atmosphere.
With such an unbelievable setting, it's no wonder why the Outsider is consistently rated among the best rooftop bars in Milwaukee. Whether you stop by for a quick cocktail or spend an entire evening here, it's an experience you won't soon forget.
The Outsider is located at 310 E Chicago Street (9th floor), Milwaukee WI 53202. In search of more unforgettable restaurants? Be sure to check out
