Revival Bar and Restaurant Planned for Walker’s Point
Revival would open in restaurant that once was Snack Boys and All Purpose.
Maldonado told Urban Milwaukee in an interview that the team plans to create a “chill” atmosphere in the restaurant and bar. The restaurant would feature a variety of fusion dishes and craft cocktails, but the specific menu has yet to be finalized.
Maldonado said this atmosphere would be different from the restaurant he currently owns, Snifters Tapas and Spirits (606 S. 5th St.). Snifters also features craft cocktails and fusion dishes, according to its website.
The 136-year-old building has been used as a tavern since before prohibition, as Michael Horne previously reported. Most recently it was home to Snack Boys, which opened in 2018. Prior to that, it was All Purpose Bar & Kitchen, which closed its doors in 2017.
“We’re just trying to keep kind of that same vibe and ambiance as what snack boys used to be,” Maldonado said. “And we’re hoping to bring back the same crowd.”
According to city assessment records, the property is owned by Longwood Acquisitions LLC.
Once open, Revival’s business hours will be from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Saturday. It would have an age restriction of 21 and above.
A license application for Revival is pending before the common council.
