East Side staple Hooligan's Super Bar aiming to reopen Wednesday after year of being closed

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee East Side staple will soon be back again after almost a year of being closed after a fire and complications due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People are already enjoying drinks outside Hooligans Super Bar, but neighbors and patrons said the area around Ivanhoe and North just hasn't been the same since last November when the fire happened here, but soon, employees said it'll be a step closer back to normal.

The Original: Modern Classic on the City’s East Side

The Original has always been one of my favorite spots in Milwaukee since it opened in 2018. Taking over the original Calderone Club location off Oakland Avenue at 2498 N. Bartlett Avenue, The Original puts a modern twist on classic American. As someone who lived in New York City for a long time, I can tell the difference between a trendy hipster joint and an authentic supper club. This is neither—it’s a modern classic.

Patio picks: Nomad World Pub

Befitting a bar with a globe in its logo, the Nomad World Pub doesn’t believe in borders. The Nomad may technically call 1401 E. Brady St. home, but the Milwaukee bar scene staple constantly stretches far beyond that simple address. Even in its earliest days, as owner Mike Eitel tells it, the Nomad pressed against its limitations, becoming one of the first venues on Brady Street to introduce sidewalk seating to the strip, helping open up the bar while pushing out unsavory business at the intersection. Over the years, the bar’s sprawled out even more dramatically – most memorably with fans pouring into the sidewalk, the street and the back patio over the years for its cheer-filled gatherings and watch parties for the World Cup, soccer finals, the Olympics and more, serving as a proto-Deer District tucked comfortably into the neighborhood.
