Jacksons Blue Ribbon Pub: Milwaukee Roots on the Historic Pabst Campus
“Stunning, historic, eclectic” are the first words that came to mind when I had the pleasure of touring Jacksons Blue Ribbon Pub located in one of the buildings on the legendary Milwaukee Pabst campus. Although revamped to create a comfortable pub and restaurant environment, the owner Mark brilliantly decided to keep many of the key characteristics that harness the authentic and antique features. Once you get past the ‘awe’ of the scenery and history of the building, you can relax with an assortment of local flavor from a full menu of made-from-scratch foods.
Popular in winter or summer, the location features a large space where you can get comfortable at the bar, enjoy a night out with the family in the dining area, or gather to watch a sports event with a group of friends. If you favor the outdoors, you can enjoy seating on a spacious patio gazing up at the historic Pabst Bridgeway on arenowned Milwaukee summer night. Given the size and the convenient location adjacent to a hotel, Jacksons Blue Ribbon Pub is a favorable venue for entertaining a large personal or corporate event.
All in all, I consider Jacksons Blue Ribbon Pub one of the “top shelf” social spots in Milwaukee and highly recommend you check it out for yourself. I can guarantee the atmosphere and flavor will keep you coming back. Easily a “Milwaukee Must”!
