A new bar and entertainment venue, Dream Lounge Social, is planned for N. Martin Luther King Dr. just north of Downtown.

The new bar would take over the space at 1806 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. that most recently housed Triple OT Sports Bar.

Owner Amy Tucker, who lives a block away, recently applied for a liquor license to open the bar.

A floor plan lists the size at 1,154 square feet. Dream Lounge Social would maintain a long bar along the south side of the building with seating in the front and back.

Tucker would own the bar with her husband Joah Tucker, a former UW-Milwaukee basketball player.

The Tuckers, through MLK Dream MKE, LLC, acquired the three-story, Cream-City-brick building the bar would occupy in January. The limited liability company purchased the property for $343,000 from Gregory Groves. The upper floors, according to assessment records, include two apartments.

The building was constructed in 1890 according to city assessment records. Designed in the German Renaissance Revival style, it has housed a number of taverns on its first floor. In recent years the bars have often had sports references in their name, including Triple OT (overtime) and Total Game Sports Bar. It was also home to Club 1806.

Triple OT opened in 2016 and closed in 2020 based on city occupancy records. It was owned by Deandre Perkins.

Amy Tucker did not respond to a request for comment by the time of publication.

The license request has yet to be approved by the Common Council.
