One thought on “Taverns: How Steny’s Helped Revive Walker’s Point”

  1. Another interesting thing to remember is that this was the Gay Bar area in Milwaukee, and Steny’s opened as a straight bar right in the mix of things. It was good for everybody. I also remember going to the place before it was Steny’s. I recollect it was called the Cordovox. There were other straight bars in the neighborhood, including Bachun’s, which was run by Agnes who worked her bar until she was in her 90s. The only remnant of the Slovenian bar scene there is Tony’s, which has been dormant for years, sadly.
    They also played pool with different rules (three rail, last pocket) and I would have to remember that when I was on the South Side. Also, they played a different dice game than the usual bar dice, the details of which escape me.
