We went for a Shakespeare Raw show. I had never been in the space…apparently its a very popular wedding venue. I thought it was laid out nicely…there’s a courtyard a little bar area and a main hall. I would definitely return. It wasn’t difficult to find parking nearby on a Tuesday at 700p. Bartender from Best Place was great.

The Best Place was literally the best place for our wedding on 10/2/21. Everything was beautiful – the ceremony in the outdoor courtyard, reception in blue ribbon hall, and all the history the venue has. The staff was incredibly helpful and professional, especially the coordinator Sarah. A little slow to respond sometimes but ALWAYS got back to us with thoroughly answering our questions. When it started to rain, the staff did everything to make sure things were perfect. We loved how reasonable this venue was and the customizable bar packages. We were able to have our dream wedding within our budget. The only downside I can think of for this amazing venue was the later ceremony/start time. We weren’t contracted to start until 5pm and unable to start setup until 2pm. To alleviate the stress of set up, I designated some family to do it and gave them detailed instructions with pictures on how to do it. It ended up working really well.
Thank you SO much to everyone at the Best Place for hosting our event and helping us create our whimsical, ethereal, cottage core vibe wedding.

My team loves when we get to DJ at this venue. Such a cool building, the decor and architecture is gorgeous. Their staff is always friendly and engaging, JOSH IS THE BEST BEARD…I MEAN BARTENDER EVER!!! Truly, very helpful, thorough, accommodating. They helped make our event there this weekend, a breeze. I’m looking forward to our next event there!

The tour was great. I highly recommend experiencing the historical reminiscing of the Pabst Brewery whilst sipping a fine, cold PBR. Cool stop in a neat little section of Milwaukee.

A great review of the origins and history of the brewing enterprise that have rise to PBR. Our guide was both informative, erudite, and hilarious.

Priceless old brewery, interesting tour. Scott, our tour guide, was funny and his story of how Pabst grew his brewery and how the building was finally saved is well worth the time. Had a chance to sit and have a beer at Capt. Pabst’s desk in his old office! So glad we found this.

We had our wedding at Best Place at Pabst (Great Hall and Speakeasy). It was absolutely phenomenal and gorgeous! It’s such a beautiful venue and the staff was so incredibly helpful and accommodating. They really helped and worked with us through the shifting plans due to COVID, and really helped our event feel unique. I would absolutely recommend Pabst for events and may need to find an excuse to be able to come back! Thank you for everything!!

This tour just made me a PBR fan. Scott our tour guide has been one of the best your guides, with his knowledge, charisma and story telling that he engaged the whole audience. For only $12, you get an hour long tour and a beer. PBR are only $3, coffee shop and gift shop. Learned a lot about the history and how they brought this building back to life!

The Best Place at the Pabst truly was the best place to have our wedding! Because we had a lot of out-of-town guests, we opted to combine our ceremony and reception location in the Great Hall. We knew from the first tour we wanted to get married here – it gives the perfect historic, old Milwaukee feel with beautiful hardwood and windows throughout (so decor was minimal!). Sarah was very helpful in answering all our questions and helping to make sure that the day ran smoothly. They were also very accommodating with our additions of hours and a small stage for the ceremony. All of our guests loved being in such a beautiful, classic Milwaukee venue, and many commented on how special and unique it was. The bartenders were also awesome, and it was wonderful to have such a customizable bar package. We highly recommend The Best Place at Pabst for a totally awesome Milwaukee wedding.
