    Pabst was an all-around fantastic choice for a wedding venue. We loved the antique craftsman feel of the Great Hall -- it required very little decor to look rustic chic and photographed wonderfully. As a bonus, there are plenty of photogenic spots right outside the venue too, including, of course, the iconic PBR sign that lights up at night. The staff day-of coordinator (which comes with the venue booking) were all professional, communicative, seasoned experts, from start to finish. We appreciated how transparent and thorough they were, down to their check-ins on the bar tab during the reception. Despite how busy they are as a venue throughout the year, we never felt like 'one of many.' Highly recommend Pabst!

    We had our wedding at the Pabst Best Place in the Great Hall on 11/11/23. I fell in love with this venue the moment we walked in. This venue is one of the most beautiful venues in Milwaukee. We got married upstairs and it was so beautiful with the stain glass windows shining behind us during the ceremony. Our hall had the speakeasy and our guests loved it. It was perfect for cocktail hour. Our wedding was perfect and a huge thank you to the amazing staff who made that happen. We worked with Sarah before the wedding and she was always so fast with responses to all our questions and helped us prepare for the day. She was also very accommodating and went out of her way to available for us. On the wedding date, Josh was a huge help. He checked in with us continually and made sure things went smoothly. Call and book a tour! You won’t regret it!

    Best Place is a wonderful, beautiful venue! We received a lot of support from their staff to make sure that our day ran smoothly, which was so appreciated. Our photographer was so excited to photograph the space and our guests complimented us all night about how beautiful the space is!

    Best Place is the only venue my husband and I visited and we knew it was the one. Sarah and her team are absolute pros and we felt very taken care of the entire process. The courtyard is stunning, highly recommend having your ceremony there even in the cold (our wedding day was in the 30s) and the reception hall is warm and cozy. The staff was incredibly attentive and accommodating, they even let the two of us sit in the smaller (closed) bar post-ceremony so we could have a glass of wine together before joining the party. Can't recommend enough!
