Music in the Air

July 09, 2018

In Milwaukee, the short season of summer brings everyone outside to enjoy all that the city has to offer. Join us as many of our restaurants offer live entertainment outdoors on a variety of evenings during the summer. Featuring many local artists, our music scene paired with Bartolotta Restaurants’ delicious food, wine and/or cocktails is one of the myriad of ways to enjoy Milwaukee in the summer.

Harbor House

Harbor House is hands down the best view of downtown Milwaukee and Lake Michigan, and the patio will once again be rockin’ with a live music series ranging from instrumental jazz to classical and more! Guests can cozy up with a cocktail and listen every Sunday and Monday evening from 4-7 PM through mid-September.

Pizzeria Piccola

Pizzeria Piccola in Wauwatosa will continue their outdoor music series every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 6-8:30 PM on the patio through August. Residents can stroll over to the recently renovated downtown and sip a glass of wine, feast on wood-fired pizza, and delight in the tunes.

The Italian Community Center

The Italian Community Center is bringing back its music in the courtyard for the second year in partnership with Milwaukee Brewing Company. Centrally located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, this courtyard is a perfect space to enjoy free entertainment without having to hop on the freeway. Bands are scheduled starting at 6:30 PM on Tuesday and Thursday nights through September. Stop by for great live music, awesome food and delicious beer! Please note that all performances are weather permitting and will move inside in case of inclement weather.
