Kegel’s Beer Garden
Celebrating our 95th year with
the takeover of 59th street!
Kegel’s Inn, Public Table, The City of West Allis & Hofbrau
Street Takeover in the heart of West Allis! Great things are happening in the East Allis Neighborhood of Milwaukee this month when Kegel’s Inn & Public Table are planning to close down the North half of 59th street between National & Greenfield for the entire summer. From the dates of May 24th to Nov 15th, this lightly used street will serve as the new home for the “Kegel’s Beer Garden.” The seasonal closure of the street will provide the space for a daily beer and food sales from both Kegel’s Inn & Public Table, as well serving as an event venue for live music during the weekends.
The combined space will be operated by partnering restaurants Kegel’s Inn, well known for their popular Friday Fish Fry and Authentic German food, and Public Table, one of West Allis’ newest culinary hotspots for shareable plates and local craft beer. The restaurants will operate separate liquor licenses and split the beer garden down the middle. Planters, signage & small amounts of street paint will help delineate each operation. The projected opening Weekend with be May 24th -26th with live music to celebrate Memorial Day as well as 95th birthday of Kegel’s Inn! Seating will be on Hofbrau Beer Garden Tables, while overhead lighting, umbrellas for shade and two propane heated fireplaces will provide additional ambiance.
Although 2019 will technically be a pilot program, subject to the success of all partners, the hope for the future is to create a more permanent closure to the street, possibly the designation of a pedestrian-mall where permanent structures could provide a year-round gathering place.
