About Us

Best Place's history & tradition offer a venue unparalleled in Milwaukee. With both indoor & outdoor spaces at the former Pabst Brewery we will help to create a magical & memorable event! There are two venues available, Blue Ribbon Hall & The Great Hall, both beautiful & historic, each with their own unique charm. Recipient of numerous “best of ” awards and one of Milwaukee’s most desirable and iconic event spaces, Best Place is the ideal venue.

Blue Ribbon Hall along with it's associated outdoor courtyard are actually located within a school built in 1858. The buildings reflect the architecture of the early Renaissance of Germany of the 15th & 16th centuries. Remodeled in 1940, the room is adorned with colorful fresco murals, ornate architecture and period furniture & artifacts. In the warmer months the outdoor courtyard is a ideal spot for weddings.

The Great Hall, the original corporate headquarters of Pabst Brewing built in 1880 and includes the former office of Captain Frederick Pabst. Renovated in 2014, "Great" is an understatement, as the original stained glass windows allow natural light to flood the room. You can see the wonderful Milwaukeean history in the wood flooring repurposed from the old brew house along with the ornate woodwork throughout the room. Below The Great Hall, in what was formerly the infirmary, is the Speakeasy, remodeled to resemble a pre-Prohibition taproom.

  • Flexibility:
  • We stopped by the venue a few times leading up to the wedding - once when we chose it as our venue, once to show our parents the venue, and a few times when we just wanted to grab a beer or look in the gift shop - and every one of those times the staff treated us like we were one of the crew. Super friendly, always asking us if we wanted to look around the Great Hall, helpful when we were planning the wedding in figuring out how best to set things up, and they had great vendor recommendations. We were primarily in contact with Kim who responded to emails very quickly and clearly knew what she was doing which made us feel a little less stressed throughout the planning process. Kim was also very accomodating when we wanted to drop some things off earlier than the day of as well as us picking up some of our decor the following day, which we very much appreciated. Overall we loved the venue, our guests loved the venue too, and we can't wait to swing by and enjoy a beer as a married couple... Read more
