Milwaukee's Music Lounge

EST. 1977

Located on Milwaukee's Eastside, the Estate has been hosting some of the best local and national jazz musicians for over 40 years. Unassuming and intimate, the space feels more like a neighborhood cocktail joint than a national jazz venue, but looks certainly can be deceiving, Our stage has been host to many great jazz musicians including Joe Henderson, Cedar Walton, Red Rodney, Eric Alexander, Al Foster, Chris Potter, Conrad Herwig, Brian Lynch, Eddie Gomez, Rudder, Arturo O’ Farrill, Jim Rotondi, Rick Germanson, David Hazeltine, Danilo Perez, The Bad Plus,Dan Nimmer, Charlie Sepulveda and the Turnaround, Bruce Barth, Tom Harrell, and Charles McPherson.

Recently purchased and refreshed by the owner of Bryant's Cocktail Lounge, the Estate now features a top notch cocktail program to compliment the world class music. Cocktails range from $8-$12 and rotate seasonally, but are always made with the best ingredients. In addition, classic cocktails are always available and we have a excellent selection of spirits.

Open seven nights a week from 5PM to 2AM No Reservations Accepted
