Roses are red, violets are blue. Bars & Recreation has just the Valentine’s Day event for you!
You’ve got game! Local activity bar company Bars & Recreation, Milwaukee’s hub for all things “play”, is hosting four uniquely immersive Valentine’s Day-inspired experiences sure to get sparks flying. Feel the love at the romantic and edgy Cupid Studio pop-up bar operated by Splash Studio, work together in a round of Maker’s Golf at Nine Below, or experience the thrill of axe throwing or chill of shuffleboard with that special someone at AXE MKE and NorthSouth Club.
Cupid Studio is Milwaukee’s love-themed pop-up bar, located on the East Side and operated by Splash Studio. Cupid Studio is bursting with fun and flirty photo ops, love-inspired cocktails, mocktails, ice cream drinks, special events, date night “make & take” projects, and inspired decorations celebrating the love of couples, families, besties, and singles. Additional information can be found online at CupidStudioMKE.com. Cupid Studio runs through Sunday, February 23. Walk-ins are welcome, and special artist-led sessions will be held at select times.
Or, take a date on an axe-citing break in the Northwoods. Sharpen the love and throw some axes at two engaging locations. Heat things up in Walker’s Point at NorthSouth Club, where the warmth of the tropics meets the coziness of a remote cabin. Or spend time on the East Side inside AXE MKE, where the hottest fashion statement is sporting all things flannel. Axe lanes may be reserved at both locations; deck shuffleboard at NorthSouth Club only. Date Night package upgrades are available including the Date Night add-on featuring pink confetti balloons, two Cupid’s Kiss cocktails, and a takeout box of chocolates to share.
Whether celebrating Valentine’s Day with a sweetheart, a bestie or the crew, Bars & Recreation has Milwaukee’s best options for an action-packed, memorable night out.
