It doesn’t get much better than an amazing rooftop venue in Downtown Milwaukee. And this is exactly what The View at Evolution offers.
This new rooftop venue, which opened in September 2016, has an amazing indoor/outdoor space, light-drenching skylights and windows, with a full bar inside and spectacular city views outside.
About The View at Evolution
“Wow” is the first thing we said when we saw The View. The indoor/outdoor space, the city view and the decor were all done perfectly. The View is located on the 3rd floor rooftop of a building that includes Evolution (upscale ping pong lounge) and the Brass Alley restaurant on the floors below.The space can seat about 150 guests (250 cocktail) and is located right in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee on Old World Third Street. Its neutral palette is the perfect backdrop to compliment any style of decor and the sliding glass doors make it an amazing indoor/outdoor space, any time of year.

Catering Options Abound
One of the great things about The View at Evolution is the catering options. They have a standard wedding menu, but if you’d like to customize you can work with their sister properties, which include Trocadero, Red Rock Saloon, Red Lion Pub, Evolution, The Brass Alley and McGillycuddy’s.
The Wild Planet Hospitality Group, which owns and manages The View, is made up of local ownership. So if supporting local is one of your goals (and it should be), then you can accomplish this by booking your wedding at The View.
Location, Hotels and Parking
Located on Old World Third Street, The View at Evolution is within walking distance to The Aloft Hotel and the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee. In addition, you won’t find a shortage of bars to hit and several other hotels are a short Uber or Lyft ride away.
For guest parking, consider the lot on 4th Street and Highland Ave. Also, The View owns a 25 person bus that you can rent for your events.
