With the summer weather finally here, patio season in Milwaukee is in full swing. The Third Ward is a great place to enjoy some fresh air and your favorite happy hour cocktail al fresco. We’re going to share a few new patios, an old favorite, and the perfect outfits that will take you from on the clock, to on the dock.

Perennial favorite and Lela neighbor: The Wicked Hop

The Wicked Hop’s three season patio is heated, so it’s a great destination when the weather’s a little chilly. A great view of the bustling Milwaukee Public Market will help you get in your people-watching fix. Wicked’s “Hoppy” Hour specials include $1 off draft and bottle beers, $5 house wine and $5 select specialty cocktails until 7pm. Check out their website for more information.

We suggest this sleeveless dress from Closet for showing The Wicked Hop some Hoppy Hour love. No need to worry about sleeves when your going to a heated patio.

New kids on the block: Camp Bar

Not new to the Milwaukee bar scene, but new to the Third Ward is Camp Bar. They just completed construction on one of the most unique patios in the area, in full-on Camp Bar style. This will be a great place not only for happy hour patio sitting, but some post Summerfest sitting too! Check out their website for daily specials.

We absolutely love this casual white dress from Arrata Silent Journey. You’ll look professional and put together at work, but definitely not overdressed for Camp’s laid back vibe.

Up and coming patio: The Outsider at The Journeyman

You’ve no doubt heard the hubbub about Kimpton’s latest venture in the Third Ward, The Journeyman. Slated to open early this summer, featuring an epic year round patio dubbed The Outsider. If the stunning design and fire pits aren’t enough, the breathtaking view sure will be. Visit The Journeyman’s website for more information on the up and coming Outsider.

A snazzy rooftop hotel bar deserves a stand-out look, and you’ll definitely be turning heads in this Gracia botanical printed skirt and Last Tango top.
