Points East Pub

Milwaukee

Maintaining the maxim, "Built on a wing and a prayer," this Milwaukee watering hole boasts an impressive list of craft beers, a whiskey forward cocktail program, and most importantly, plenty of grilled chicken wings. Locally renowned for their popular rendition of the sauce-drenched poultry delicacy, Points East Pub hand-coats each of their wings in a viscous house BBQ sauce, grills them for precisely the right amount of time -- not too tender, not too crispy -- and serves them hot with fresh-cut celery and blue cheese sauce. While the bar offers 15 rotating beer on tap, tasting menus for its veritable whiskey selection from Japanese rye to Canadian bourbon, and a food menu listing plenty of classic bar snacks, you'd be remiss to leave Points East without ordering the notorious wings.
